And also polished hood. Will make for a decent spare hood even though there's a hole, and latch rivets are ripped out and crack in the front. I laid it next to my other hood for comparison.

Fixed my middle handle not to long ago. Just had to reweld the handle to the rod. But had to take it all apart to do it. But have me the chance to lube every thing up good.

the casting that connects the lever to the valve on mine broke. the piece slides on the lever on the inside and i need to get my levers apart to do the job but not sure how to.

Any pictures of that. Been a month or more since I had mine apart. Can't remember what I did. It's not to bad, once you can see things.
