Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am looking for a windshield slide arm bracket for my 1929 Stearns-Knight. Please let me know if you have one as pictured here. Thank you.

Steve

Steve.......they are on sale at Walmart in the isle with the unicorn horns.............hurry before they run out...........

 

 

 

Sorry......couldn't help myself. I don't think in 40 years I have ever seen any Stearns parts for sale anywhere.......... Interestingly, it doesn't look like standard off the shelf hardware made by the three big companies that made most of the stuff back in the day.......It's probably factory made and body style specific . I think your going to make what you need......

I have spoken with all of the (couple of) Stearns-Knight Model J owners with parts and none of the seem to have this one. It will probably need to be made but I thought I would ask. The original sedan that Al Giddings built his phaeton out of had them. Does anyone know where that body went? Al says he doesn't have anything anymore.

Did you talk to Peter Woyen?

I spoke with Mark Young a year or more ago. They are partners, aren't they?

Still Looking!

 

Ed needs to chime in here and tell us who made it and what other cars it went on.

Hate to say it, but probably best just fabricating one to then have a near perfect original one show up am hours after you are done installing it.

 

Good question:  What else does it fit ?

Ternstedt is the manufacturer’s name.

 

 John.......it’s made by a devision of GM. Each line was dedicated to a particular manufacturer.......so it’s unique to Stearns.

Ternstedt ?   I may have a Franklin one in a drawer - that would give him the tuned knurled part and possibly the screw if the same (or perhaps nothing would interchange - as you mention).

Should not cross over.....unless Stearns bought product from Franklin..............they also often use weird thread pitch.

John and Ed,

I have all of the other parts. I am just missing this one part. I am beginning to wonder if it might be in another of the many boxes of junk that came with the car. I will check everything in all of the boxes thoroughly to see if I missed anything. It would be interesting if this is the same as the one used in Franklins in case I don't find it hidden away somewhere.

Should be easy enough to make out a chunk of brass or bronze........probably less then three hours work.

Always happy to photograph and measure up the Franklin part - I thought I saw one in a drawer of screws two or so weeks ago.

John,

If it is the same as the one in my photos, I would be happy to buy it from you. Thank you.

No, you would still have to make the bracket - the only parts POSSIBLY interchangeable are the knewled part inserted into bracket and the screw.

John,

I have all of the parts except for the bracket in the photograph. Thank you for taking the time to look through what you have.
