Default Re: 40/41 pickup windshield install. What to expect?

When replacing a windshield always use a new gasket. You will need a helper to hold the windshield/gasket assembly in the opening, and a strong cord in the groove in the gasket (we use nylon), and a bottle of liquid dish soap (we use Ivory). Put the gasket around the windshield glass before you start, leaving enough cord out to get a good grip.Start at the bottom and pull the string out as you go while your helper pushes from the inside. Old rubber usually will leak due to the loss of elasticity, A good seal needs no sealer.
