Decided to replace cracked side window on the Boler
today. Removed the frame easily enough from the assembly. Robertson screws...gotta love 'em!
This is where it gets interesting. Since it's a '78 Boler
, I'm assuming none of the fasteners for the window frame have ever been removed, so I sprayed my secret formula of WD40 and PB Blaster on the fasteners to penetrate for a while.
They came out just fine....except for the two located at the bottom of the vertical frame section frame which I assumed were a little more stubborn because I thought the were corroded more. Applied more WD40 and PB Blaster and wait.
Armed with my trusty #1 Robertson screwdriver I used more torque. No luck. And ended up rounding out the screw head.
Tried a screw extractor, then drilled out the screw head, then tapped the frame end of only discover this:
It's about 1 3/8 of an inch long!
This end shows the regular screw, about 5/8 of an inch:
Question now is: How to fix this and reassemble everything successfully?
