  • Hawk vent window pivot - New question added

    I have to replace the vent window pivot on my 59 Hawk.
    I can't locate an oval head rivet like the original.
    Can use a standard rivet with a sealant or possible a small round head screw.

    Anyone have experience with a good replacement? Or know where to get an original.

    One more help question.
    I had to remove the glass to replace the pivot.
    The glass had a premade (original) rubber (or rubber like) material that sealed the glass to the frame. I can't find this in the Body Parts catalog.

    Is this just standard glass putty like used for windshields? If so, how due you keep the glass aligned in the frame?

    Or are pre-formed pieces available?

    Dell - I had a broken pivot in my 63 Daytona and ended up making another one using a rod from a hardware store; a die to cut new threads; my torch, to heat up, bend and flatten out one end; my eighth inch drill for two holes and I used steel 1/8" everyday rivets. It all worked great.

      I purchased a new pivot from SI.
      Just connected with 3/16 rivet. Looks fine.

      thanks for reply

        I think I used a 6-32 button head allen and lk tite on the threads.

          SI also has the rivets but I think they are $1 each!

              I just did mine and I used a standard rivet. After I popped the rivets in I took a flat piece of metal and a hammer and (made sure I had support on the bottom of the vent frame,(vice)) and beat the rivet ends as flat as I could so the vent window would slide in and there would be no pointed edges to rest on the window to crack it at a later time. Worked great.

                Use auto glass setting tape. Available at almost all auto glass installation shops.

                    I bought L & R NOS complete vent window assemblies from SASCO a few years ago. You might check with SI to see if there might have been some in the pile when they bought out the remainder of the SASCO warehouse.
