  • Reason for the Hood Hook

    Today while changing the oil on my Champion I finally learned the reason for the hood hook.

    It's to hold the filter while it drains into an ice cream pail.

                Actually it's a weather station. If you see it's shadow, it's sunny, if it's wet with water that means it's raining, swaying back & forth indicates it's windy and so on.

                  If I tried that, at some point I would walk by and knock the bucket off.

                    Ever since I was a kid I thought it was a head scalper. At least that's what it always did to my dads head. Lol
