97 F350 Hood Latch Striker Fell Off
At some point the striker that is attached to the hood has disappeared. I do not recall what it looked like or ever looking at it and I cannot find one on line nor can the Ford dealer find a picture of it or have any replacement part to offer. I am currently trolling junk yards for one without any luck so far. Can any one who owns one send me a picture of what it is supposed to look like? I might be able to fabricate something up or maybe you even have one for sale?
Not to many 97's left in Michigan having all rusted to scrap metal. This one only has 106,000 miles on it and runs fine would like to baby it through another 200,000.
Don't want to go with the bungee cord look for this truck. It appears to have been held on by one bolt since there is only one bolt hole. My 99 F250 has two bolt holes and those strikes are readily available.
Thanks for any help.
