i used the drill bits, and never had a problem. as long as both motors are equal strength, it should be fine. there is no way to align the top like most convertible tops. Ive had my drill bit for 9 years until it failed last year. put in another one....

as a common practice. when you see convertible parts on ebay, snag em. go to yards, save those parts. I have spare motors for this reason...

Yep. This is why my top frame broke. found one pin sheared at both ends. Modified a titanium/cobalt drill bit for replacement, but can't seem to tap the broken middle part of the old one out of the the motor gear for the life of me!! Bent/broke a Dasco 3/32 punch trying to knock it out...

Any ideas or suggestions? Ideas anyone?

ADD: can anyone suggest a decent punch for getting that pin out of the convertible motor gear pinion (sheared at BOTH ends). I busted a DASCO 3/32 punch the other day trying to get it out - to no avail.
Is there a stronger or better tool to punch that pin out?

Anyone?
