  • Windshield swing arm washers

    Was looking for a chrome screw for my swing arm & ran across these swing arm washers from Snyders . Part # a-45477. They really help hold the
    swing arms ! Most of you probably already know about them but I sure didn't. ! 1 other thing I found was shipping from Snyders is much cheaper& faster
    with priorty mail. They are in Ohio & I am in Texas & it takes 2 days to get it if I order early in the day. Snyders est shipping was $9.50 actual cost was $3.77
    vs Fed Ex ground 3 day @ $17.79. Who would have guessed. I have enclosed a pic of the washers installed. Hope this wasn't a waste of your time.

    Thanks. Wasn't a waste of my time. I'm in Texas also and I always try to save on shipping. So are those washers rubber? Mine use to rattle loose but I finally figured out I had the metal/rubber washer installed incorrectly. Once I put it on right it stays in place ok now.

      They have a rubber washer & a metal cup both.

        All of the stuff I get from Snyder's or Bert's I have then ship by USPS. FedEx and/or UPS to Alaska is prohibitive.

          Windshield won't stay open
          by sinbad339
          As the title says, the windshield won't stay open on my '30 Sport Coupe, no matter how hard I tighten the nuts. This is as I'm driving down our somewhat pot-hole filled northern Ohio roads. Looking for any info I could find, I came across some conflicting things from Brattons's. On the Swing Arm Nut Washers page (PART #: 30140, the cupped washers with the rubber inserts), they say "Assemble:...

          Windshield Swing-Arm to Body Fasteners?
          by Neil Wilson
          RGJS page 12-16 shows that the fasteners are knob, washer cup, rubber washer, thin washer. However, the text on page 12-17 includes a spring washer. Does anyone know if the spring washer was used throughout production? What was the Ford part id? I have not seen this washer on any 1928-1929.

          Was the original washer under the cup rubber or some other material?

          Radius Arm Help
          by Chevmn56
          I am replacing the rubber ball mount with the factory mount. Do i get rid of both cast iron pieces that mounted the rubber ball setup?

          The measurement on my ball is 1.4770 left to right (arm is still mounted to the front end) top to bottom is 1.4330. I know it needs to be 1.5. I have the cupped washers with the hole in them and they measure .08. If i put one in on the bottombthat will...

          by Supergnat
          Does anyone have the ford drawing for the pitman arm? The one on my recently acquired 29 Phaeton appears to have minimal wear but the ball is oval shaped. Is that how they were manufactured? Thanks, Supergnat

          Wiper attachment
          by Art Ebeling
          On my VIctoria the wiper shaft goes thru the header. What attaches it on the outside? I have a nut, a cupped washer and a small metal spacer. Should there be a rubber washer of some kind?

          28/29 roadster/phaeton stanchion weatherstrip installation
          by wrndln
          I have a couple questions about how the rubber weatherstrip is installed in a 28/29 open car windshield stanchion. I have some rubber weatherstripping I believe is correct - pictured below. There is a long piece of rubber weatherstrip that goes in the slot in the bottom of the windshield frame. It is symmetric, so no problem there. However, there are 2 shorter rubber weatherstrip pieces that are suppose...

          Radius ball fix
          by pAAt
          I have a worn radius ball and after market rubber ball with the cast lower coupler. I can buy a replacement rubber ball or purchase a washer made to fit on the top of ball, to take up slop, and use original couplers. They make a ball replacement, but not for the early 28's from what I've seen. Can early 28 balls be welded and ground ? How about a good farmer fix, like welding the washer on the top...

          Choke rod washer finish
          by wrndln
          I am trying to find out what the proper finish is for the metal washer that supports the leather washer on the choke rod at the firewall. I found nothing in the JS's, but there is a picture in the Sept/Oct 2018 Model A News that shows it cad plated. However, the description in Bratton's catalog says it should be painted black. Cad would seem more correct. Which is it?
