On my '65 C10 I replaced the hood latch assembly and the hood latch support with a new bolt with parts from LMC Truck, however, the hood will not close all the way. I have made adjustments several times to the support (as well with the latch assembly and support with no luck. Any help is appreciated.

Would really help to see it. Maybe try taking a few picks of the assembly and hood latch?
Here are some pics showing the gap between the hood and body. The safety latch seems to be holding, but the hood will not latch completely and securely, which creates a gap between the hood and body. Any advice is appreciated.
