Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: What type bolt holds lower 1924 windshield in support?

On my 1924 touring, somewhere between dismantling and getting ready to put the windshield back together (?remantling????) I have misplaced the bolts that go here and have no idea what type they should be. What was correct? It is a 5/16 -18 thread. The vendors catalogs are no help, nor is the 1924 ford catalog.

A slotted, round head screw goes there. Under the head of the screw is a hook that fits into a grommet in the side curtain.

Mark is right. Typically these are called "stove bolts."

Make sure it is right length,or the glass will crack.

Forgot to add that I believe it's the same bolt that's used on the transmission cover door.

IMS,they are about 5/8 length.

I should have said that the bolt is the same as an ORIGINAL cover door screw. Modern replacements have more of a truss head than a round head. They work fine but just don't look right.

You guys forgot one thing! They were raven finished, and so is the side curtain hook! I'll go one step further, that bolt would be the same as the early transmission cover door, not the late.

Larry, how is the bolt the same as the door? Doesn't the door have a different thread?

Because the later transmission inspection doors were thinner, they shortened the bolts by almost 1/16" (just guessing).
