1937McBuick Posted January 25 Share Posted January 25 Hello folks. I finally got into doing the window regulators. I had to round up the necessary stuff first. I took a slightly different approach. Instead of welding the stubs that the leather washers are on back onto the regulator arms, I had the stubs drilled and tapped to 5mm(.8 thread) and are using fairing bolts with a relatively low and wide head to secure the stubs onto the arms. The bolt's heads needed to be low clearance in case there would be an issue when the arms cross each other. The machine shop did a good job of keeping the tapped holes centered in the stubs so I could maintain the part of the stub that is inserted into the arm as a centering pilot. They should be very secure. I found a local leather shop with a couple of scraps of leather. They are tanned/processed(not tooling leather) so the washers I punched are good and firm. The two pieces were different thicknesses, the washers that run in the channels are thicker than the ones that ride between the channels and arms. I got a neat hole punch set to help make the washers concentric. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
