Among piles of new parts I've purchased for the eventual restoration of my HMMWV, I just got in my new hood latches/dog bones. They appear to be real, OEM parts. Before installing these, I lined them up against the old ones still installed on the truck and they are about 3/4" short! I know the originals are obviously stretched, but is it normal for replacement units to be so much shorter? Anyone knows the answer, please advise. Thanks again!
