The hood on our Gilson S-14 H was not attached when we got  it. There is a homemade hinge welded to the bottom of the hood, but the hood is cracked and needs repair.

I would like to see a photo of what it is supposed to look like.

Thank you for your help!

I can not get photo right now my 16 parked against shed wall blocked in. But I can tell you they are just 1/2 inch piano hinge with 4 pan head bolts flat on top of frame and 4 in hood with backing strap.IMG_20160508_101736.jpg

When the hood is closed, is the grill pretty much flush with the tractor frame?
