f-model windshield gaskets

Recommended Posts

Any leads or suggestions on where I can get a windshield weather strip and lock strip?

Thus far my searching has found infinite r model gaskets but none for the f-model.

 

thanks

I know on the don't break the windshields.  I have a tiny chip in the drivers and it is worrying me.  I had to search quite a while to find a good  replacement for the all chipped and cracked passenger window.

I think the main difference between the F-model and the R-model is  the cab is  considerably wider.   I may have to break down and buy two R-model gaskets and splice together enough width.

The width is definitely different between the two.

Getting creative with 2 R model gaskets may be the way to go.

Might also check with a PAI dealer.  They make various aftermarket Mack items.

Don't know how much would it help but CF-model firetruck utilizes the same windshields as a F-model do. So might worth checking in with firetruck guys.

Thought I had " F " model parts book but don't. P/N# 25RU47AP1 pretty sure the lock is same as R / U / DM.

 If you haven’t had any luck finding anything, contact Matt at restorationspecialties.com as they have hundreds of window and windshield rubbers and may have something close to what you need. I needed new vent window rubbers for the 74 Brockway I’m restoring so I inquired if he had anything close to what I needed. He asked me to email him pictures and sizes of what I had, and they actually had something nearly identical to what I needed. Just a suggestion, maybe they have something close to the F model.

Try Pat Walsh in Wakefield Mass.  781-246-3266   He is a great old guy with a wealth of knowledge and a huge supply of parts.

He also can make any vent window rubber.
