broke my hood release cable tonight, how do you get the hood open. Marlon
I am sure there must be a easier way,but I suspect you are going to have to take out the grille to be able to get to it from the bottom.
The good news is the grille comes out pretty easily. Or at least the 51 grilles come out easily. Not sure about the 49 and 50's.
Need Bellhousing for 51 Ford 226 flat 6 with Fordomatic,need 226 1brl carb with dashpot,need FOM steering column dash trim.
Got it opened had to take the drivers side center bar out and it gave me enough room to get my arm up there to release it. Thanks Arthur
Hi Glad you got it fixed. I would suggest attaching a pull strap to the hood lock as a back up to the hood cable.
I put a wire tie on mine and you just reach up and pull and it opens.
ENJOY EVER DAY, LIFE HAS AN EXPIRATION DATE !
