ARM, adjusting windshield,
inner assembly (after Ser.# 15304)
Part # 663707


This is shown in comparison to a commonly available military surplus arm(M35 and others). Crucial dimensions and function are the same.

The (six starred) compression spring you show in your pictures is the one I'm looking for...any chance you would part with one?  It's all I lack to complete the resoration of my windshield.

Monte: Those "star washers" are tough to come by...at least in my experience! There were a number of military vehicles that used this same style of "lollipop", and as far as I know, most of 'em used the star washer as well...but being of thinner spring steel, they were more prone to rust, and tended to go away more quickly than most other parts.

You may want to check some of the auction listings on eBay, or keep your eyes open on here, since they do come up from time to time, usually as part of the overall assembly...but be prepared to pay a hefty price, if the spring is the only thing you're wanting! I recently saw one (ONE!) lollipop (with thumbscrew and washer) go for about $40, and a _complete_ set may go to $80 or more.

Some of the other folks on here may have a better suggestion as to where to find just the washer, and if so, they'll chime in shortly.

HTH!
