1412 side window

Post by starider » Sat Sep 08, 2018 11:21 pm

Hi, the 1412[with Q cab] I purchased recently was missing the O/S side window. The fixed part of the catch is still in place on the wing and the frame which the glass seals into when closed is still in place, but there is no sign of a hinge[s]or way the glass is fitted onto the cab. Is there a glass window or possibly a Perspex window?
I have looked at all the replacement glass available and there isn't one the same shape as the frame anywhere.Help please :? ...starider

Hi, surely someone must own a similar tractor to my 1412,with the off side opening rectangular window? all I ask is to find out whether the window is glass or plastic.I can't proceed with the restoration of the cab until I re-instate a window, also I get very wet when it rains,someone help please!A close up picture of the afor mentioned window showing the hinge arrangement would help massivelyThank you...........starider :(

No Q cabs came out here but what are the other windows made from, glass or perspex and you have the answer your after. Try davidbrownparts.com for the hinges and other parts. Once on their site make 'contact' with them if you can't see the parts you are after. Sometimes the parts are hidden from view or listed in another area. they are great to deal with.

The window is hinged at the top with a strip of plastic, they didn't last long before the plastic split.The glass is toughened glass not Perspex and has fixing holes at the top and bottom. Seconed hand is your best option, I see from your profile you are from Devon so you could try Ron Greet. Your other option is have a piece of laminated glass cut and fix it in with window rubber if you are not bothered about it opening, we had a 995 with a cab like this and to be honest the opening window was a poor design when open all the dirt off the wheel got thrown through the window.

Hi, Thanks for the replies, the last reply confirmed what the bits that were left on the tractor were for. Ref.Ron Greet, he also has a problem sourcing these particular windows and hasn't any.I have spoken with our local windscreen company in Launceston, who are happy to have one cut to a pattern and have holes "drilled" as appropriate[they did a brilliant job cutting two rear door windows for my Morris Minor Van]...........starider :wink:
