Not familiar with what is needed, but might have to be a J.C. Whitney or similar generic trim found to do that?? I bet most were torn off in tractor's life.  Might be plastic stick on ones now days, but not sure how they look or hold-up.  Heck, fill the holes and smooth it out, be done!

unfortunately that is a code we haven't cracked yet.  I haven't found a source for replacement.  they were pretty simple chrome strips with foldover tabs on the back side spaced where the holes are on the hood and cut to length and applied.  only option I know currently is try to find a parts machine to rob them from.  strips on the sides of the hood were always the same I believe, but the strip on top of the hood changed over time between wide and narrow and both sizes were different than the side strips.

I've researched from time to time, but never found a source other than another old Bush Hog tractor.

Wasn't there someone on here who has a car they took the trim off and it fit close enough to work?

that was RAJ here: http://gardentractor...d-12-from-iowa/

 

my only parts machine has no trim.  I need some for one or two of my tractors which is why I have been searching for a source to mimic the original as close as possible.

What is the reason that these tractors don't have the chrome strips were they not put on them to begin with

they would have all had them but most likely were removed or ripped off or rusted off at some point.
