    No dice.

      I still think it would be cheap and easy to have continued including them.

      Just a stingy oversight in my opinion.

        What I meant was the center structural panel down the middle that the eye was attached to on the mm200. I would think that you could punch out a slot, slip the eye through it and screw to that frame panel, but I have never had the hood off of a newer one.

          I agree, but the cover opens there too on my mm210, so a half-moon relief cut would also be needed - or it needs to slip down through the slot when not in use.

          Still pretty easy though.

            Gotcha! I didnt understand the half moon cut. I also forgot that the hood opens up at the halfway line, leaving no room.
            I wonder if a drop down bail might work?

              This was probably done by the same engineer that decided when they brought out the TB 325 that the AC capability was no longer needed.

                Of course it's no longer needed - the dealer will happily sell you a dynasty to plug into the TB325 LOL

                  One of these flush mounted styles would be easy to build and install - just have to make sure it also attaches to the center wall.
