Wing Window Tie Bar

I am redoing my Wing Window on my 1977 Soveriegn. There is a vertical tie bar that needs to be removed however removal requires the installation of a new tie bar. Does anyone know where you can get a replacement tie bar or are there some other ideas for reinstallation that anyone has used. Thanks

I don't believe that I bought new tie bars when I rebuilt my wing windows. I soaked the tie bars with penetrating oil, then I put a wooden block at the bottom of the bar and hit the block with a pneumatic hammer. Drove it right up and off without any noticeable deformation. As far as places to look for replacements, I would try Outofdoorsmart.com and vintagetrailersupply.com.

good luck!

Times two. I did it pretty much the same way, but with a block of wood and a rubber mallet.

Agree on both of those Vendors, they are outstanding. I have purchased from them seversl times and have received superior service on every order.
