swapped out hood on my M880 (started yesterday and finished bolting up replacement today) ...I know but when your doing it alone, it takes longer,

Problem is when closed Pass. side/right side will not close from cowel line just past the hinges . Hood sits aprox. 2" high there and lowers to normal height

to grille. Left side gap and closing is perfect.

I didn't remove the springs just the 4 bolts that hold the hood to the spring assembly.

Any suggestions?

Changed out hinge on the right side and it fixed the problem. If I ever have to do this project again, I'll remove the 3 bolts that hold the Hinge spring assembly

(after propping up that side), then the 2 bolts into the hood and then attach new hinge top 2 bolts followed by the 3 that attach the hinge assembly.

Much Much easier.
