help on windshield wipers

Can you provide a picture of what you are trying to repair? I know of nothing on the wipers that "bolts on to the windshield". Is the part pot metal? If it is you will not have much luck repairing. I went through this with my '38. That year used no chains. I had to hand make half gears from aluminum.

I know exactly what you mean. I broke the same hook off mine trying to remove it, before I discovered that you can loosen the bolts that maintain tension on the chain.

Even if you have the broken piece it will be difficult to weld back on since I think it's pot metal. I got a replacement part from Merv Adkins. -Dave.

Lee, send me a picture of what you broke. Is it the upper gear around the shaft? Would super glue work?

My suggestion--Since you have the windshield wiper tower removed from the cowl, get another w/s wiper tower. It should be a simple fix. Repairing it would probably not be a satisfactory solution. I would bet some one has one lying about. Glenn Lorei
