    OK, DD, I now understand that you mitered the corners. Not just squishing the corner seal in place with the metal frames.
    It appears Randy squished the continuous strip in the corners with the metal...

    Randy,
    Referring to your picture:
    1) Did you miter-cut the rubber seal at the corners of the glass, or was the seal stretchy enough to just force the frames onto the glass over it and have it wrap...

    I'd carefully pull the needle off its shaft, immerse the bulb in boiling water, then replace the needle in the correct position. Do that first and it may fix the problem. Needle is a friction fit on...

    Re: Rebuilding roadster windshield

    It is a continuous strip. Maybe the Aussie cut it into pieces. Will follow up when I get the pieces back from the platers and re-assemble it.

    Agree.

    Re: leak at clutch master cylinder

    I second this. There is no sealing on the threads - all of it is between the flare and the curved seat in the master cylinder.

    If the line is stock plain steel or cunifer (copper alloy) you may be...

    Re: Axle leak at backing plate

    Bentley lb in converts to 60 - 62.5 lb ft for the pressed steel wheels. Since the studs are the same 7/16" - 20 for the hub adapters, the torque would be the same.

    Re: Axle leak at backing plate

    For settings not in the manual, suggest Google Images search for "bolt torques" or similar. There are lots of charts which give the generic settings for each size/thread count.

    Re: Axle leak at backing plate

    I'd add: blue or orange threadlocker on the lug nuts is a good idea. Sans threadlocker, my stock spring nuts had loosened up on one side and allowed a leak.

    Re: Axle leak at backing plate

    Michael,
    That's correct the immediate culprit is the lip seal.

    I believe this is the usual failure scenario - it was mine: the lip seal fails because the bearing spins and generates a lot of...

    Re: Axle leak at backing plate

    The bearing runs with the lower half in the axle oil. It is not a sealed bearing. As discussed in the linked thread, too-thick gaskets permit bearing to spin, the heat from which causes seal failure...
