The pressed studs used in various windshield mount components are subject to
damage if proper precautions are not used. DO NOT hammer on the studs, as
this may cause them to separate from the brackets. DO NOT use power impact
wrenches to install locknuts on these parts; use light oil on the threads and hand
tools to run the nuts down. DO NOT exceed Grade 5 torque values for these
Adjust the installed kit components, as necessary, prior to securing / tightening
the attachment hardware.
Torque fasteners to the values listed in Appendix A unless otherwise noted. The
fasteners clamping the "J" brackets to the cab will require a torque wrench with a
"crowsfoot" attachment. For windshield fastener brackets that cannot be
accessed with a torque wrench, use the following guideline: Tighten the bolts to
remove free play, mark the position, and turn the bolt clockwise an additional 1/2
to 3/4 of a turn.
a. Locate and lay out all items listed in the parts list for the Windshield Armor Kit,
P/N 106701-4, and the Windshield Fastener Kit, P/N 106701-904.
b. Apply a small amount of Loctite to the 1/4 20 bolts and install them a few turns into
the 0.250-in. threaded holes located in the Window Bracket Retainers (P/N 106734-1,
-5-103, 106734-2, -6-103, and 106734-3, -7-103). The 1/4 20 bolts will be fully
tightened once the brackets are placed on the vehicle.
c. Place the Windshield Template (P/N 107405-1) on the vehicle, as shown in
Figure 15. Place the Windshield Bracket (P/N 106734-3 or -7-103) on top of the
template and against the window frame (see Figure 15). Once the bracket is located,
tighten the upper and lower bolts so that the bracket clamps to the window frame of
the vehicle. Do not tighten all of the bolts at this time, as adjustment may be required
in the next steps. Using the same Template, install the other Windshield Bracket on
the opposite side of the vehicle window frame. Remove the Template from the
vehicle when complete.
d. Place the Windshield Template (P/N 107405-3) on the vehicle, as shown in
Figure 16. Place the Windshield Bracket (P/N 106734-1 or-5-103) against the
Windshield Template, as shown in Figure 16. Tighten the bolts on both ends of the
Windshield Bracket. Do not tighten all of the bolts at this time, as adjustment may be
required in the next steps. Using the same Template, install the other Windshield
Bracket on the opposite side of the window frame. Remove the Template from the
vehicle when complete.
