Thanks Brian, but I have the trim, and in good shape, but the plain steel mount insert is shot.  So rusty it's expanded tight into the stainless.  I have it in the E-tank so I can remove the mount steel without damaging the stainless.   I have some stainless steel 10/24 thread carriage bolts & stainless nylock nuts coming.  All I have to do is remove the OE steel mount strips, then grind down the rounded carriage head flat, then grind flats opposite on the head edge down to .438" or so, then they will slide into the stainless trim to fasten it to the hood.  The carriage heads measure .454", so I can make a decent flat edge on both sides to grip the stainless trim.

 

I think I get what you're talking about. Pics would be good, when you do it.

I know that scenario! With the job we're on, I have to cram the weekends trying to keep mowers going!

Being I'm on lunch break & waiting for the food, I went down & ground a couple bolts.  I did NOT haveto grind flats on the bolts edges, as it fits fine as-is.  If the nylock nuts spin the bolts, I'll just hold the bolt threads with needle nose pliers to get the nuts ran down.

  I think it will work pretty good, but it takes 9 to each side, so it takes a while.

Daniel I am looking a buying some stainless steel bolts from your eBay guy. What bolts and nuts do these tractors primarily need? Any chance you gave a list you are willing to share? Yes I am lazy, but I am more concerned I may measure the bolts wrong and my order will be wrong.

I will compile a list asap.  Most, but not all come in packs of 25 or more, but very good prices.  I bought a pack of 10 bolts for less than the price of 4 SS bolts of same size/quality from Lowes, and that included shipping from my Ebay guy.  I'll get something together soon.

I edited my post.  I went to the page twice & link copied the same.  Guess because I did it from "my ebay" page.  Looked the nut up manually & got the right link.

  BTW....these are the thin style nuts so they don't stick out so far.

Spent a few minutes down at the shop before heading to town.  These stainless 10-24 carriage bolts work awesome for the trim!  Bolts gripped into the trim snug enough no need to hold anything....the nylock nuts went right on!  One thing to not...check the holes in the hood to make sure all are large enough for the square carriage lock section to pass into the hole freely.  A couple of mine are too tight.  That or grind the square tips of the bolt slightly beforehand.

BTW...in the last pic, there is a hole at rear end of the hood side trim.  That is for the hood latch which I should have filled with weld, but I forgot.  This hood is off a D4-10 that used the latch.  This V4-6 can't use a latch on the variator side.   :wallbanging:   Might just leave as-is.
