windshield hold down knobs

Looked but I can not find the thread size for the knobs that screw into the dash that keep the windshield at the correct angle. 1983 CJ5 Thanks in advance. I don't have any and need to drill and tap new holes.

If I remember correctly, they are 3/8-16. I have a couple of bolts with washers on them in mine. Threw the knobs away years ago.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Not to drag up an old thread, but has anyone ever welded a nut with an integrated washer to the back of their dash for the hold down? I'm in the unique place of having a 75 CJ5 dash and a CJ7 tub. It looks like somebody had a later model windshield on it. But I got it sans the windshield.

That's an idea. I've got a bag of M10 nutcerts somewhere.

I used Weld Nuts with the offset base and pilot, just like OEM Jeep used. They are easy to install with a portable spot welder or TIG.

^^^^ x2 what Keith said. I used those a lot on my YJ tub and they are quick and easy to weld in place.
