WC Hood Pivets

Post by rgus »

I am looking for a set of Dodge hood pivets with their special oval headed countersunk machine screws. Also I need a set of the windshield supports and their screws. They are the little blocks ther were mounted to the edge of the cowl that the W/S frame sat on. Anyone have any????

The windshield support blocks can be made from "key stock" from a hardware store. I found just the right size and cut the blocks to length. Then drill two holes and countersink the holes for the flat head machine screws. The key stock is easy to cut and drill. Good Luck

It is a bar of steel that fits the slots on a shaft and a pulley to keep the pulley from rotating on the shaft under load. They come in various common sizes and it is easy to work.
