Hello everyone, when i got my "O" I noticed a few issues with the hood. One of them being, when you open it, it opens til it lays on the front nose/grill. Which has chipped the paint off the nose of the tractor. Is this normal??? Or should there be a hood prop or rod to stop the hood from rotating all the way onto the nose piece??

My 129 did the same thing and I rigged up a thick piece of wire that ran from the back of the hood to the top flat shroud on the engine to prevent it from moving too far forward. I believe it was supposed to originally have some provision for that but it had long been lost and as a result I found a large indentation on the front grille from previous owners letting it hang there.

All 3 of my CCOs open all of the way, the hood emblems don't hit but the hoods do.
