I just got a '59 and I'm trying to work out a few of the bugs. The two hood latch are NOT keeping the hood closed. Both male latch pins have the grooves in them. When I close the hood, I can hear the grooves going into the female latches. The problem is it does not stay in the female latch. It wants to pop back up when the hood it hit or during driving. (Vibrations) Is there an adjustment or weak springs I can check?
