This is a common problem with all pick-ups including Chebbies, it is
usually caused by rotted or just plain weak aprons where the hood hinge
bolts to the apron. It can sometimes, if not too extreme, be eliminated
or at least minimized by readjusting the hood (hinge-hood bolts).

Hey Azie and Rob,
I'm frame-off restoring my 71 f250 4x4 and putting a 67 mercury body on (for
rob's benefit as I know you know, Azie).
I'm basically positive my xfercase is a np205. But I'll check again tomorrow.
My 70 f250 does the same thing. I believe that the springs are the biggest
reason. Mine are so worn that I now have to use a prop to hold the hood up.
There is no rust in the area where they mounted and they are adjusted as low as
they will go.
In regards to the 6" to far forward hood I would bet that the links are out of
phase ( easy to do if the spring has been removed ) My 56 had flat circular
springs that I replaced and the links could be rotated past center without the
