HI

Does anyone know where I can get the correct SS hinges and springs.

From what I have gathered from the net is the repro ones are only recommended with the lighter repro hoods.

Looking for someone that has had success making the change.

Thanks

From what I can tell, the hinges were the same, but the springs for the SS/cowl induction hoods weren't as stiff as the ones for the flat hoods. I believe this was to compensate for the loss of structural rigidity with the "bump" in the hood.
