    Re: Who sells this part?

    The hardware for this was still on my BJ8. I just cut a similar piece of rubber with an exacto knife and mounted it on top.

    Re: Time for a new windshield

    Thanks guys! Do you also think its possible to re use the seal at the bottom of the frame if its serviceable? Trying to avoid the dreaded newer aftermarket ones.

    Re: Time for a new windshield

    Re: 64 BJ8 won't start after 10 min. drive.

    I had the same thing happen on my 66 BJ8. I adjusted the mixture making it slightly leaner (even thought these cars like more rich) and it seemed to turn the engine over a little easier when hot.
