Some important techniques:
-Super glue gasket, 1- 2" smaller than glass perimeter. Glue only to itself, not to the glass!
-put seam at the middle of the top of the window.
-start fasteners at the bottom corners first, position carefully, and not too snug. Then do the top corners.
-glue lock washers, or star washers to each nut before you start.
-Don't tighten until all fasteners are in place, align first,
-I taped the glass to the frame, may not be the best idea.
-Extra hands help to position and hold the window in position.
- prime, and paint the frame, and cab mount first!
- used a box wrench to tighten the nuts where possible.
- floor was out when we did this on a 34 ccpu.
- we used ss fasteners.
Let me know how this turns out, and trial fit the glass first, and again with the gasket , and again with the gasket and glass nested in the frame!

Yep. Will take time, and don't rush it. The patterns are in the service bulletins.

Something that helped me install the glass in my CCPU was one of theseÖ.. really helped me hold the glass to position the frameÖ..

Itís a suction cup used for pulling larger dents out of sheet metal. Can be purchased at Autozone or Amazonís for around 10 bucks if Iím remembering correctly.

This helps. Itís got a magnet on the back to hold the nut while you start it.
