    The holes were changed in 72. What year hood do you have. I have what ever you need but you have to know the year of the hood you are using. 72 and up A-body hoods have stationary mounting threads so the hinges have larger relocated holes

    My hinge is the top one. I ordered a fiberglass bolt on hood for a 1970 Duster. These hinges do have the springs??? I also would like the safety latch and striker arm. How do I get invoiced? New to this site and not so good on a computer. Also I do plan on two hood pins on the front.

    I am going to have the springs reworked so as they are low tension.
    that's why I need a different set up. I will not do the spring alteration on my OEM springs. I save all OEM parts.

    When ever you use a fiberglass bolt on hood you need to install 72-76 hinges.The style on the bottom. It doesn't matter what you ordered the hood for. all fiberglass hoods have stationary threads in the hood.

    Not trying to disagree with oldmanmopar but my fiberglass aar hood hinge bolts are adjustable .they are not stationary ..you really need to check hood first

    You may still need the bigger holes for adjusting the height. This style still only moves front and back. I am not sure whether you want pictures from me or others.
