I saw a photo of a JH with a pair of long gas struts used to support the open hood.  Has anyone tried this?  What would be the specs on the struts; length and pressure?

Many thanks, Joachim.  I will order struts right away.  The instructions are very comprehensive.

If you will contact me off line at mfsjr2@comcast.net  I will send you my original article with the correct measurements and some good photos of the installation as well.

I finally got mine installed with the help of Franks information. Work great, and keep the Bonnet open nice and wide.

Thanks for the supportive comments.  I talked directly with Frank and got all the details I need.  I am setting up to do it even now.
