Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: 23 Touring lower windshield post bolts

I have a 23 touring with a one man top. The lower windshield mounts through a slotted hole at the mid point of the post. I can not find (or figure out) the type of bolt or attachment that is used. The 17-22 years have a bolt with a spring. I have looked over the major parts suppliers online catalogs and can't find anything. Suggestions?

Round head slotted machine screw, also holds the curtain hook.

I believe that screw is the same one that holds the transmission inspection door on the early models. The later ones are too short. They were originally raven finished. I have NOS ones on my '25 roadster.

Well I am glad I saw this. I went to to the shop to take a picture of mine and discovered the passenger side has vibrated itself out and is gone.

Unless I am mistaken the correct machine screw is 5/16-18x3/4. I went to tractor supply and could only find a hex head which will stand in for the moment. The above link on amazon is as close as I can find on the web. Perhaps there is a restoration supply place with something more authentic. I just ordered a box of these, so now I will have 99 spares.
