I've been looking at old catalogs and pictures of 900/1000 and see this hood style that has the long cutout for the exhaust. Does anyone know what year they made this style hood? Would the 900 have ever used it?  Thanks for any info.

Interesting that the parts manual for the 800 lists a different part # 1714580 than what the parts manual for the 1000 shows part # 1716628.  The parts manual for the 900 assigns it #40 in the drawing but does not list an actual part #?? Were there any differences between the hoods used on the three models?

1714580 is for the 1963 800 which had a different cutout for the S7D engine and also had a different shaped front for the big letter "B" on the front of the hood

 

1716628 was for 1964&1965 800's and the 900&1000

Thanks for all the info guys. It's funny how the catalogs used whatever pictures were available and not always accurate.
