DESCRIPTION

LATCH ASSY, Hood, repro, early 67 style with short catch guides, These were replaced with the longer 68 style and there is evidence that some very late production cars in July or August received the longer style, We STRONGLY recommend that the latch be lubed at the contact points and pivots prior to installation, White Lithium works well as will other similar lubricants, WD-40 is not a true lubricant!We have a December 67 scheduled build date Metuchen car (133xxx) with the longer style hood latch so the use may be a lot earlier that originally thought.

Manufacturer Reference #'s: FDM1083DD, C7ZZ-16700-A

Vehicle Applications

LATCH ASSY, HOOD

horrible part, very stiff and hard to move, if that was the only problem no big deal, the hole mechanism is just off. tried modifying for hours, there is just not enough movement when on the car and adjusted properly for it to unlatch!! bent the lever, added material so it would push more!! no luck!!! not worth the money!!

After seeing your review, we test-installed a 16700-5A latch here on one of the 1967 Mustangs in our collection, and here’s what we found.

 

The latch is not adequately pre-lubed from the factory. Upon discovering this, we simply lubed-up all of the critical points and pivots, and installed it to the car without issue. It adjusted perfectly, hood opens/closes/unlatches perfectly.

 

I fear that the root of most of your frustration, was a latch that needed some lubricant prior to installing. Hopefully you can straighten your lever, lubricate it, and have a better experience with it.

 

As a result of your review, we are going to add a recommendation to lubricate prior to installation in our product-description.

correction on my review, it was the incorrect part, there is a long and short latch, i actually installed the long and i need the short, I'm sure this will correct the problem! the latch it self looks great i bought this years ago it was labeled 67-68 long, do the research before you review lol
