Help! Referring to the image this cannot be right. Mounting the tee nut as shown prevents the bracket for the hood pin mount to not sit flush with radiator saddle. How does the hood levelers get mounted?

I don’t have hood pins, but seems to me that the nut would be mounted in the inside of the support instead of on top. Just from a laymans common sense point of view. Like I said I don’t have hood pins.

Thanks, for replying. Yes, you would think that would be the case. However, the opening measures 7/16th by 11/16th scant. The leveler measures 7/8th by 1 3/8th. Just for clarification this receives the threaded hood bumper.
