Referring to the drawing, l0 represents the
radiator casing of a motor vehicle and II is the
motor or engine thereof. i2 is a bonnet or hood
forming a casing around the motor and in the
form shown it comprises a stationary portion
The bracket 34 above referred to is also used
I for supporting the forward end of the part H of
the bonnet, as at 46, and for the purpose of at
45' '
taching the forward ends of brace rods 40, the
rear ends of'which rods are connected to the ve
hicle dash, not shown. The connection of the 50
rods to the bracket is adjustable by reason of
nuts II. In the form of the invention shown in
Fig. 5 the ?llertubes 2la and 320.,’ instead of
having screwed on caps, have their caps 22a and
33a mounted on the pivoted cover 36a. These 65
caps 22a and 33a are loosely mounted‘ ‘on the
cover as at 42 and springs 43 are provided to
yieldingly press the caps over the openings. A
lining material 44, such as rubber, is came face
of each of these caps in contact with the upper
ends of the ?ller tubes. ,Thus when the cover
36a is moved to open position both of the ?ller
‘ tubesare open for ?lling, andlas _the,cover
moved to itsrcllo'sed position both tubes areauto
