This is in response to a post Tony Bowker put on the classified. The correct nuts for these 1/4-20 windshield post to dash nuts is: The thickness of the nut is 1/4", a bit thicker than a standard square nut. The long ones are 1 1/2", and the short ones are 1 1/16. The purpose of these nuts is to eliminate the need of a wrench on the back side of the dashboard when installing the windshield post, or the dashboard.

Larry, did both the upper and lower screw have the extended plate nut, or just the upper?

Slant windshield dash nuts. As I recall, the long one is the lower. If that doesn't work, it must be the other way. It's been ten years!

OK, thanks Larry. I just checked, it turns out that Betsy only has the plate nuts on the lower bolts, the upper ones have regular square nuts.

Considering the number of incorrect fasteners that I have already replaced on Betsy, I'm not surprised.

More stuff to add to my Hershey shopping list, or maybe I'll get some 1/4 inch stock and make my own. :-)

That explains why I had so much fun putting square nuts on the 24 Touring have just completed. It's doable but tough.

Interesting.

When I was messing around with the windshield fasteners on my 24 Touring, I found these long nuts on the car and thought that they were simply more of the "farm fixes" that are so prevalent on the car.

I went ahead and made a couple from some left over flat stock last night. Going to leave them natural finish like the originals. Will install them this afternoon after my bike ride. :-)

I just installed those, I only had 2 so I figured they went in the lower holes seeing how difficult it would be to get a regular nut in there. The upper holes you can get a nut in there easily.

Approx. size of the parts you fabricated, and what size hole should I drill to tap to 1/4-20? I could look it up.
Thank you

Look on a tap/drill chart.

#7-.201 or a 13/64 drill should be about right. :-)

Can someone please post a picture of where these go?

On the back side of these pair of screws on each side of the dash. :-)

Ok ... right. I am hoping to re-install my slant windshield assembly on the '23 this weekend. I have the four carriage bolts for the side light brackets that go into the windshield bracket, but forgot about the ones shown here. I did find one of those long nuts in my windshield hardware parts can, but must have lost the other one. I dismantled this T nine months ago and thought I had separated all the hardware but occasionally one goes missing. Thanks!
