I will have myrtle back on the road this weekend. "Thank you" to all for the help and information. I'll be driving her this weekend after the open heart surgery she had (not a total rebuild, but pretty in-depth)and I was looking for a way to keep the windshield from blowing shut, or more disconcerting blowing open towards me and stopping on the steering wheel. Anything under 20 mph and the upper portion of the windshield is fine but around that or a little faster and it tends to want to sit in the seat with me.
I have a '26 RPU. I found what is called a windshield slider arm in Lang's but can't figure out from the photo how to install them and what I would need to do so. I know this is a pretty goofy thing to bother you with, but I thought I'd ask before I bought something I couldn't use.
Someone will post a photo of correct way the cups go when installing the widshield. If the wing nuts bottom out before they are tight, put a washer under the nut.
Oh and have a blast driving this weekend!
Jason, The windshield slider arms are for closed cars, not for roadsters. The vendors sell a rubber seal for open cars like yours that goes between the upper and lower windshield glass. It's shaped like an "h" and will stop the upper windshield from blowing open towards you.
While Keith's solution will work, something isn't right about your upper windshield hinges. it should take a bit of effort to tip the windshield. You should be able to turn the wind nuts to tighten the frame down.
The cones on the windshield frame it self might be in place but maybe the cups that go in the stanchions are missing. (?) Or the studs are messed up and not allowing the wing nut to really get everything tight. Or the wing nuts have bad thread in them. Even without the rubber the windshield should stay open or closed.
