Speaking of the hood vib dampers, did they use
anything like that on the XX2/3 series at the front? My 123 hood rattles at the front pretty bad. It has new rubber rollers on the rear and the hood hinge holes have never been broken or repaired. I have the hinge bolts fairly tight.
I know it is rattling against the nubs that stick up from the grille casting. If I push down on the hood with my hand there, it stops rattling. Also
the cross brace is intact.
While on the subject of bumpers for the 1x6/1x7 NF, what about the anti-vibration tape that goes on the pedestal where the rear of the hood hits? What about the cushion that goes between the fenders and rear of the seat? Mine is since long gone.
I was able to buy the anti-vibration tape from my Cub dealer. You could probably buy plain old dense, foam tape for there. For the seat snubbers, I went to my local hardware store and found some gromments for wiring that are working just fine.
