Hey everybody, looking at buying a Suburban 550 to restore. If I need a good hood, are they out they? Or, should I just look for a more complete tractor? How much do you think a used hood would cost? My understanding is the 400 has a different hood? Thanks in advance.

Hoods are out there, it may take a bit to find one though. I don't think that there is much difference between a 400 & 550 hood. One extra hole in the dash area on the 550 hood for a switch is the only thing that I can think of. Some 400's can be found with this extra hole punched out but then plugged off. The 401 & 551 hoods have different throttle & choke mounting, plus an access plug in the dash area.
