Can someone explain to me how to adjust a 359 hood. Mine is not on straight, i need to move the left side towards the cab about 1/4 inch. It is an 81 extended.

Where the bolt pivots at the hinge on the frame, there is a do-dad that swings fore and aft which moves the hood back and forth about 1/2".
Make sure the hood hinge bushing is not shot.

The hood hinges where they bolt inside the hood have slotted holes, which allow you to raise or lower the hood about 1/2" or 3/4" if necessary. Make sure its not riding on the radiator.

The cowl mounts adjust fore and aft, as do the portions of the hood which mate to the cowl receivers. Go by the fit of the hood to the cowl, then adjust the cowl pieces to maintain the fit you want.
