55 wagon hood latch problem

Recommended Posts

I'm reinstalling the front sheet metal getting ready to paint.  Have to align the hood but am having problems with the hood latch.  It goes into the hole/slot perfectly and the latch and safety catch function well.  The problem is when shut and I lift on the hood only it will raise in front 1.5" until the safety catch catches.  What keeps the hood down snug?  A couple of photos.
