    Pigs never came with hood hooks. Unless you are talking about the hood latch under the front of the hood, behind the griil. But '40s never had those, so...

    I didnt think they ever had them, your must have been added by a PO perhaps the latch under to hood is broken.

    Damn. The original latch mechanism and release cable are gone and after all this time I never noticed the lack of hooks on other rigs!! Well I've got the holes so I might as well use em. I'll check the hooks on my 40 when I get home from the fire station in the AM. Thanks.

    Good luck with that. When I buy my parts pig in a few weeks I'll sell you the hood latch and cable and all if you want. Assuming its in a useable condition.
