Thanks Bruce! I knew there had to be someone out there who had done this. When I talked with Pilkington they stuck to their guns saying there was only one windshield for 62s, glue in or not. But in working with another supplier who was good enough to go into his warehouse and measure the glass we came to the same conclusion as you state above. The national glass book these guys use shows the DW 610 windshield for 61-63 and the DW 623 is shown as the “optional” windshield for 63 .Maybe the glue in was a mid year 62 change so they show it for 63. Since 61-63 windshields are the same the conclusion we drew was that DW 623 also fits 61-62. Turns out the 623 is slightly higher at 24.250″ vs the 610 at 24″. I guess the extra height gives a little more beef on the flange for glue in. We are getting ready to buy the 623 for the glue in and the 610 for the gasketed.
Thanks again for adding some comfort to our decision.
