Hi Guys, I am restoring my suburban 7 and was looking for a pic of the underside of the hood. i have a hole in the hood where i guess the hood catch was. i need to repair the hole with same gauge metal as the hood and duplicate the missing catch so the hood latches properly to the piece on the motor. Thanks, Wayne

Do you have any pics of what you have? I can take some shots of my 917-60601 tomorrow .

The 619 - is that a 1961? 

Round hood?

Thanks for the replies, My tractor is a round hood with a BKN i can just about make out the "7" on the hood. I just found a factory recoil for it. it probably came with one. The tractor is currently i pieces as i am cleaning, sandblasting , and painting. I need to do some repairs to the hood but i dont know what the underside looks like on one thats in good shape and that still has the hood "catch" ThanksP1010931.JPG

Here is a picture of the latch I made for my Suburban.

The top part fastens to the hood and bent to the proper angle , this was 

a factory piece.

The "catch" part I made from scrap, bent to shape to snap onto the bracket

on the engine.

Here is a couple of shots of mine - this is all factory

These are a common problem - they crack the hood or just plain rip out.

Good luck !

My uncle bought one of these with a real good fix -NOT

He did a proper repair and it is back like it should be now .

That is a very cool tractor , The only model with the BKN motor . I don't care how bad they look - they always look sweet to me :smilewink:

Thank you very much, this helps me alot . The missing piece kind of looks like i could use a broom handle hanger. This is part of the fun of restoring a tractor like this with virtually no parts out there.  My only other challenge will be to try and trace the "7" off my hood to make a template and try to have the decal made. I already have all the other decals for it. Thanks again for the help. I will try to take some restoration pics as i go.   Wayne

I pretty sure they are the same latches as used on the db walk behinds too. and yes I saw an article where the broom handle holders are almost an exact match.

there was a dude on ebay that was selling the complete sticker kits, I used his for my db suburban resto
