Hi Rich. Could you snap some photos of your hinges please? Do you still have your old hingles? Have you compared them side-by-side? It sometimes to see the problem first hand.

Also, who or where did you purchase the new hinges? Were they specifically for the HO/RAM AIR hood? I am hoping you purchased them from a quality OER catalog company like OPGI, YearOne, National Parts Depot, etc.
