I have a 1966 122s and the trunk lid does not stay open. The guy that owned it previously just propped it open with a stick. But I see there are two long spring bars that run laterally and attach to the trunk hinges. So I can only assume these are intended to keep the trunk open. Is this correct?
So there just don't seem to be many other Amazon owners in my area of Baltimore, Maryland. I feel like if I could see one that works properly and study it for a few minutes, I could probably identify how to rework mine. I attempted to rearrange the bars this weekend with the help of a friend, but besides scraping a bunch of pain, fatiguing the metal of the channel is sides into on the end and a few nags on the head and scraped knuckles, nothing was accomplished. I would really appreciate any advice on this, and maybe some detailed pictures of how it's supposed to work.
