90 canvas roof

I'm just putting a canavas roof on my 90. It came with three spring loaded
catch type things. Where do these fit? Has anyone got a scan of the relevant
page from the parts catalogue they can email me please?
Thanks
Richard

On top of the windscreen there should be a clamp bar that you tuck the
beaded front lip of the hood under. The catches are offset cams that
fit through the clamp bar with the handles poking out underneath the
windscreen top lip. You push the handles 90 degrees in one direction
to clamp the bar down, and back to pointing straight down to allow the
clamp bar to move up so you can pull the beaded front lip of the hood
back out again.

Don't make the bolts on the catches too tight otherwise you have to
strain quite hard to push the catches into the clamp position, not
only is this a PITA but it also means the clamps can fail because the
handles are only held onto the bolts by a small rollpin which breaks
under too much pressure. Spares are cheap though.

Moving downwards, the order of the parts when assembled should be;

nylock nut
clamp bar across top of windscreen
spring
windscreen surround top edge
bolt with plastic catch pushed up through holes, fixed with nyloc nut

That should do you, I don't have a scan or a working scanner.

Richard
What Ian is refering to there are 4 of and his very good explanation
should suffice without a diagram, sounds like you have one missing.

Or are you refering to the rubber straps with D loops, 3 on each side?
The rubber hooks pass through slots in the over door channels and hook
onto nylon hooks on the inside of the channel thus holding the canvas
against the frame over the door. These nylon hooks are guite often
broken off but are easily replaced.

Re: 90 canvas roof

The three things I am referring to looks like a lever with a spring and nut
on it. Should there be four of those?
I notice it says Medway Military Vehicle Group. Does the 110 you have, have
a canvas on it? If so, would I be able to have a look as I am in Maidstone.
Thanks
Richard

There should indeed be four, but I've only got three fitted and have
never had any problems. Replacements are very cheap from dealers so
it's easy to get a new one.
