Yeah, that's different! Is there a rod that they hinge on? Which holes fit the hinge rod?

Heres some pics of the hinges on my C-101 Hard to get a good shot of how they mount, but
hopefully these will help.

Interesting. I just did a search on Redsquare and everything I found was entirely different. I'm pretty useless on this one.

Does this match? From the 1980 C-175 8-Speed ipl at Toro
Adding a larger pic that includes item 11

WGHD, that is for the standarad C size, knew those, but black hoods seem to be extended out some and diff hinges. Thanks for the pictures time.
GWest, YEs, Yes! That left picture or the other boxed on on right are the right ones. I could only find that center type with the V-shaped parts and were not mine. Tractor is an automatic, but not sure why that would make any diff, but who knows? Only thing not known now is what side of frame to put them on, inside or out? I guess I can get that figured out. Thanks again! First time I've ever had odd Horse items, usually most are same from model to model.

GL, is there something on the frame that the curved cut out goes around?

No there isn't that I recall. Was thinking maybe for the quick-tach, but seems to high for that. Heck, maybe this is someone's change and not even right one?? BUT, it does look like that picture above. Having hard time saving and printing that for some reason, get a lot of junk on firefox saved. Otherwise it wants to print this whole posting forum, which I'm doing now just to get that picture. It won't be big like I can open it too tho. Not sure why having save issue, do all the time most times.

and use model number 01-17KS02
When the parts page opens there is a small printer icon at the top left of the illustration. Click on that for a page that prints well.
1980 was the year they switched to Eaton hydros and that parts list shows the second design for a hood hinge. Model 01-17KE01

Thanks West, I hate that darn site, can never find anything. Didn't think to use those model numbers, C175 sure didn't work! I finally took a picture of your attachment on my phone and took it out with me. I have the frame ones mounted, on outside, as when inside, the metal end of frame was up into the curve of where these bump out wider. SO, fits better other way. I then mounted other halves on hood temporarily and held up to it, and they line up good on outside of frame mounts. SO, good to go! I won't mount hood till I drop in engine and have to put "Sparkle" paint on what is normally the black area on this one.
