Wink Not knowlegable on a tractor so may be all wrong. But on a MH Gleaner I have done the side window you open to check the return elevator. Plane old aluminum pop rivits worked for me. I believe I have done it twice by now.

If they are like the 8000 series back window then you need wide flange aluminum rivets w/aluminum pins(not steel) and they have plastic bushings that fit inside the holes on the glass to add a little support.  Nobody locally had that length aluminum rivet w/wide flange so we ordered a box of them from McMaster Carr.

I had to replace the hinge on my 7040 back window 2 years ago.  Got the hinge and rivets from a local A/C guy.  He said to use a hand operated riveter and get the rivets tight but do not pull them tell they pop.  Seems to be holding fine.

I'm not sure what comes with a factory window.  I priced one for our 8000 series and then bought a new back window from All States Ag Parts, it cost $215 for the glass only(shipping would have been cost another $100+ so I picked mine up at their warehouse).  I bought rivets from McMaster Carr.  I ground off the old rivets to reuse the hinge and saved the plastic bushings that fit inside the rivet holes.  I set the hinge on the window making sure I had it the right way, inserted all the rivets and plastic bushings, and then fit the steel washer on the rivet and riveted every other one, and then came back and did the rest.  The hinge has narrow slits on the side away from the rivets and those slits fit onto a u-shaped bracket at the top of the window opening.  It takes two people standing on sturdy step ladders to safely tilt the window out to almost level in order to line up the slits with the bracket.
