ADJUST WINDSHIELD WING BRACKETS

To secure a more positive grip on the wind- shield wing glass, also to lessen any possibility of the rubber shifting in the windshield wing bracket, both the rubber and bracket have been redesigned.

Most windshield wing glass breakage is due to failure to adjust the bracket to compensate for the difference in the thickness of the glass. The bracket is provided with an adjusting screw for this purpose. Failure to adjust the screw prevents a full bearing between the windshield wing glass and the rubber in the bracket and puts an excessive strain on the glass.

To install, insert glass into bracket, press the two jaws of the bracket together with your fingers so that both jaws are flat on the glass throughout their entire length, then hold the jaws in that position and turn the regulating screw either in or out. Next securely tighten clamping screw. ,

Before tightening the clamping screw, make certain that the rubber in the bracket is squarely in place and making a 100% bearing. The ,post bracket on both the upper and lower bracket assemblies should have equal tension. This tension is regulated by means of the hex head cap screw at the bottom of the brackets.
