1966 glass hinge too big?

hi all, I'm working on window #2 replacement - the front window. I've separated the glass bar from the window glass hinge (slid it out...) and in doing so have realized that the window glass hinge in the front has a bigger channel than the one in the back. I could not pull the window glass hinge in the back out from the bottom - it had to be slid out. the glass bar will fall right out of the window glass hinge in the front. any thoughts on how to put some insurance in there? would the double sided tape work in this application? anyone else ever have this problem? thanks!

Unless the front fixed hinge were changed by a PO, they should be the same. When we renovated ours a couple of years ago, I remember removing all the operable hardware, then raising the window until it slipped out of the "J" channel. As far as fixing the pane back in the glass bar, there are several products recommended on the forums. When I seated the glass back in the bar, I had all the hardware on and closed the window tight and left it closed overnight until the adhesive cured. Hope some of this helped. Good luck. Bubba

thanks Bubba! I used adhesive (iron grip silicon) to seat the glass in the glass bar as no double sided tape would fit in there with the glass but do you mean using adhesive when i slide the glass bar with window seated into the glass hinge (i think that's what you mean by the j channel)? thanks!!

What we did was install the glass bar back into the J hinge that is fixed to the shell above the window opening. Then we applied the adhesive to the inside of the glass bar and slid the glass in. Once the glass was in with all the operators and bottom window clips in place, we closed the window and let it cure overnight. Some have a set screw in the J hinge to keep the glass bar from sliding.

thanks!! I have the window glass curing in the bar - I think I'll try to install it on Wednesday. We'll see how it goes!
