I'm putting together my windshield and what is the proper arrangement of the nuts and washers when I attach it to the stanchions?
Does the stanchion go where the red arrow is pointing?
Windshield-fasteners (64.5 k)
why isn't this image showing? I'll try again.
Thanks Norm. I'll get right on it!
The more rounded side of the square lock nut to hold the male cone of the frame should face out. That way won't interfere with action when fitted to the female cone of the stanchion.
No washer needed unless you want it under the square nut.
Then the stud only should stick out of the stanchion, lastly the nickel wing nut fastens the frame to stanchion , for the swivel adjustment. A tiny dab of Vaseline on the mating cone surfaces with improve windshield adjusting action too.
So the rounded nut should face out toward the stanchion? Isn't the cup in the piece that fits the window frame concave so to match the nut? And the washer was part of the original set up and is not a standard washer. Its diameter is slightly smaller than a standard washer.
Dan, what square nut? The tapered nut is a hex nut. I should have taken pictures when I took it all apart.
You are correct, didn't remember right on the tapered nut. Still don't think a washer is needed, but if so, place it under the wing nut. Have used small stainless washers there too.
