Yes, definetly a two person job. First lube the rubber up (inside the groove) with WD-40, dish soap, or silicone, etc... then place a heavy but thin cord/string inside the gasket groove. Now place the bottom of window gasket into the window opening and have the other person push the window down onto the edge of the top from the outside. Have the other person hold and apply light pressure as you pull the window gasket into the opening using the cord from the inside. You may have to work the gasket with your fingers or a screwdriver if it folds. take your time, this is not a fast process.
Finally dug these out of storage so I can clean them up and install them. Anyone have any tips or things I should watch out for when I installed them?
Those are nearly impossible to install. I think you should ship 'em on up to me and I'll make a whole write-up on how I installed them on mine.
Nice score though. I'm jelly!
gives some solid advice and if you search around the site a little more, I'm sure we've got some good info from members past and present that will help even more.
Well, Not Today but Saturday.....
On my 1978 Ranger XLT Bronco, I replaced the lower steering shaft with a Borgensen unit, Wild Horses Saginaw PS kit and a Redhead steering box. Plus a in line filter and fluid. 7 hours later, all works awesome.
started cleaning the headlight assemblies as the rain wouldnt let up on us. Took a wire brush attachment to the angle grinder and blasted away most of the rust, going to finish them up with a dremel and quick coat of etching primer and black enamel paint
that white dentside with the blue flames is awesome!
Still waiting on mine from alignment shop
Sorry to hear you're still waiting on the alignment shop, but could be worse, like the 22 weeks mine spent in the shop after we got her from Texas to Pa. Curious (and this is gonna sound like a noon question) but why do you call it a "dentside"
