Greetings from Wisconsin! The hood for my 1650 is laying on the garage floor because the Tee Bolts were missing when I bought the tractor. I've found them on several parts sites, but the price is as much as $20+ per bolt. There's got to be a more reasonable option. Would someone please reply with the specs for these bolts (see attachment) to help with my research? I'll share options/prices when my research is complete. Thank you!

Not sure what the actual size of those are. Have you tried McMaster-Carr? Click the link below and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page:

Gary - No guarantees, because my digital caliper is an el-cheapo, but this should be close:

A - .25"
B - .25"
C - .69"
L - 1.7"
T - .95"

They offer these bolts w/ 3/8 or 1/2 diameter. Based on glippert's response, I need 1/4 diameter. Thanks for replying, though!

Make them, easy enough if you have a welder
Cut the head from a 1/4" bolt and weld the shank, cut to the proper length to the top.
Choose a bolt (2) with a long shank to have enough to make both the pieces from X 2
Clean up the welds with a file or dremmel tool.
Or use ready bolt in a cinch.
By the looks of the originals, I believe they were forged

By the way, these are available at CC Specialties for $10 each. Still not cheap, but depending on how valuable your time is...

Cut the head from a 1/4" bolt and weld the shank of another headless bolt to the top

Thanks for the feedback. Good suggestion, but this retiree doesn't have a welder (yet!). What do you mean by a ready bolt?
