Buying them is better than fabbing them. At least I gave your want ad a bump. grin

You'd need a special shop to fab one of those. I only need the right side support now. MNSmith is sending me the left one. If anyone has the right side support, I'll happily pay you for it.

Nah, All I'd need is a torch, hammer and anvil, and a vise. Not that hard. wink

Interesting. There are no markings on mine that I can see.

How 'bout it? Anyone got a ride side hood support that they can spare? Mark is graciously sending me the left one gratis. He even sandblasted it for me. All I need now is the right one, and my truck will be "complete" (after twenty or so years.)

Thanks to kades51, I now have both supports on the way. Thanks so much Stovebolt. I've been meaning to take care of this for quite a while, and it only took week to get what I needed.

Kevin I have a 54 3604. It wasn't clear until after I had cleaned them up and repainted them. I had previously tagged them so I wouldn't get them mixed up. Take a look at the FAM , section 11, sheet 4, shows that the end of Brace Rod stamped L or R assemble to hood lock. Mine were stamped right where that arrow shows. Glad baldeagle
was able to locate a set. Yea Team!
