Can anyone who has a beadlock style gasketed windshield get me a part number off it?
There are 2 sizes of windows for GM vans. Smaller (for use in locking bead or chrome lock gasket)
or larger style for (urethaned in)
I want to know if a Pilkington DW 1162 will work with channel lock style gasket.
Any help would be awesome!!

Bead lock type windshield part number on our GMC:

Bead lock gasket had the same "853" in the part number.....

It took about three trips to get us the right one. They finally sent an 'old guy' who knew which one to order. laugh

Thanks CatFish! You the man!!
Here is what I have learned:
I have heard the part numbers are as follows if others need.
Pilkington 925 (aka 1161) With Button for Mirror = Urethaned in.
Pilkington 926 (aka 1162) Without Button for Mirror = Urethaned in.
Pilkington 853 without button = Rubber beadlock style windshield.

It looks like you guys are putting beadlock windshields and gaskets in later model G20s...

Any issues?
I hate this 2 piece, plastic, piece of s*** that's on my van. It looks like it's 40 years old and there's a gap in the middle. LOL

The metal opening is the same. Never changed.
The windshield (and gasket) on my '94 was ordered for a '78 (IIRC). I got the glass without the mirror mount because I didn't want an inside mirror. Can't see out the back anyway. rolleyes
As MrCSM says, the gaskets were available with the chrome colored bead-lock but the black bead-lock is by far the most common. And a used gasket in good condition will usually seal as good as a new one. crazy

Cool.
I like the rubber gaskets better, but my old '70 Westfalia had the issue of letting water in at the top, but not letting it drain... so the windshield frame rusted.
That doesn't seem to be an epidemic with our vans, so I may have to convert (my windshield is scratched anyway).

Thanks, Catfish.
