My BX25 hood latch is popping loose.
I looked and the pin that the latch catches on is just barely in the catch. Judging by the wear marks, the pin is at least 1/2" out of whack.
I looked at the front hinge location and I do not see nor feel any looseness nor can I push the hood back to take up the missing 1/2".
Any ideas?

I couldn't either, will have to stop by the dealer and ask the service manager. Just about 200 hours so need to do fluid change and need to pick up the fluid & filters.

Does yours now have a gap between the hood & cowl? Need to take picture today and post.

I just went out and messed with mine. I got to looking at everything and I discovered that the tab on the hood that has the pin that goes in the latch welded to it wasn't straight. I took a pair of channel locks and gently straightened it. Now the pin goes a lot further into the latch and it doesn't pop open when you start the tractor

Thanks for the tip, will have to give that a try next weekend when I get back to the lake and tractor.
