Are the GI windshield pivot bolts the same as the available repro's.Does anyone have a spare original GI bolt.The manual says 3/8x24 but a 3/8x24 bolt will not fit.The NOS bracket part number7375360 (WO-673555) 11/52
The NOS GI brackets were threaded for 3/8x16 and I was able to rethread them to 3/8x 24 for the repro bolts I found.Both brackets were in the original sealed package.Both marked G740 with the correct part number.Both came from diferent sources.Both were threaded for 3/8x16 not 3/8x24.

The two bolt holes in the brackets for mounting them to the cowl are just holes. The bolts are placed from the inside of the cowl out and the nus go on the outside. These two bolts are 5/16-18NC-2x1 and have lock washers attached under their heads.
The two pivot bolts go into the weld nut (these superseded the tapping blocks originally used) in the middle of each bracket. The weld nuts are 3/8-24NF-2.
The special shoulder bolt is 3/8-24NF-2x with a 5/8" OD x 21/64" shoulder. It uses a special flat washer & a lock washer. _________________ Wes K
