Irritating

How do you keep the engine hood up while working on the engine on a Georgetown?

Don't know what model you have but on my GT 378 looking into the front end on the right side there is a linkage bar that swivels 360 deg within the hood scissor linkage with a slot that can be rotated up to engage the hood support round bar.

I think it's the same. You have the identical hood. Anyway, check the linkage out.

I also tightened the nuts on the hinge bolts--they have the built-in nylon lock washers. Don't over-tighten the nuts or it will be hard to put the hood back down. Also--I had one of the springs pop off and had to re-attach it.

Damn FR pay 300,000 for a MH and you use a branch to hold the hood up, I wouldn't trust my DW being she always mad at me. I'm sure I would have a lump by now..
