I guess I’ll turn some delrin rod and make some oversized then...
Thanks-I cut a piece of bike tire inner tube and used it as a shim for now. Works so well I may just leave it alone.I have run into these sort of differences all the time.
Motor mounts can vary as much as an inch, especially on an aftermarket chassis.
Your other option would be to make a metal sleeve with a slot in it to shim the plastic bushing.
The sleeve would have the same opening for the hood hinge with am OD matching your over sized hood mount and an ID that the plastic bushing fits into with clearance to slide for opening and closing the hood.
I’m not sure now if you were kidding or not. My innertube shim fix finally disappeared and I heard that familiar rattle. I took a rubber hammer, then a dead blow p,astic and finally my big copper mallet. Hinge remains exactly same size, thick as hell and I’ll cave in the bulkhead before relaxing these closed. I’m with Robert on this one— they are different sizes. Cut another inner tube but I’ll make either my own bushings or sleeves. Probably my own bushings— just seems easier.The loops on your truck are probably just stretched. Tap them with a rubber hammer until they fit nbd
