A Lift Motor Replacement?

Postby hwy8 » Fri Feb 08, 2013 8:28 pm

I just got a new catalog that has 12v window lift gear motors for $15. The "turntable" looks as if it could be easy to mount a spool.

Check it out: http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-st ... AND/1.html

That looks pretty good and at a heck of a price! ($14.95) Do you know if it is chassis grounded or how to reverse direction? We need a 3 wire one if we want to use stock GE wiring.

I'm not sure how it's wired but I'd like to look inside that connector for an idea. I wonder if there's a Chrysler part number or even better, a schematic, available online.

I just tried Google using "Chrysler Window Motor" and all kinds of sources came up! First, All Electronics has a right hand model for the same price, if that is better for us. J.C. Whitney and many others have lots of possibilities....They might be good sources for info. too...

Burt - You can still find NOS GM / Delco early 1970s window motors on ebay for between $45 and $75. They only have two wires, but you could either wire it up for 3 wires, or take the armature out of it and use it to rebuild your existing lift motor. There is a write up on how to do the conversion somewhere. We need left hand (drivers) side motors by the way.

Is that third wire used to reverse the motor? If it is, could a switch be used to reverse the polarity on a two wire motor?

The third wire is the ground.
