Martin Burs (60 T-Bird) is THE MAN! Here he is on his sailboat, when he isn't machining tools.
This is it from the dock.
Based on the OEM window rollers, Martin sketched some dimensions to make ready for some beautiful brass window rollers.
These are the real deal. I don't know of any vendors that sell brass rollers. The best you can find is nylon.
Here is one of the original rollers next to a new brass roller.
Same thing, flipped over.
I'm just checking for fit.
It's important to clean up the steel pin before installing the new roller. When ready, just slip the new roller down until the clip clicks. Done.
Here it is all greased and ready to go.
