Did any other Bolens model use this hood latch spring that was used on the M/W Squire 6? Here is a couple pictures of mine. I have one good and one broken. It's spring steel also.

Never seen one quite like that on a Bolens, The early "Round Hood" models just used a tab on each side that was spot welded.

Here's a couple more pictures to show how it latches the hood to the dash.

I don't think anything like what you need was used on any Ride-A-Matics or tube-frames.  .....I can't think of any other Bolens equipment that used something similar.
