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?

So I ended up using a small punch to punch it through with the gear still in place and ran into a snag mad.gif .. ended up busting the sides of the holes stopping the pin from being able to be punched through and just jamming it in there even more mad.gif . sooo... I ended up having to use a drill press with a 5/64 sized bit in order to drill the broken pin out smile.gif . fast forward; I made a new pin out of a 3/32 sized black oxcide bit(thinking of just going cobalt) but the hole seems slightly larger than the new pin. Is it supposed to be a snug fit? kindasad.gif ? or it too large now? Does anyone reccomend any sort of adhesive to stop the pin from sliding around and falling out once the motor is reassembled? Thanks in advance

Sorry I'm new at this. The left arm bracket made of cast aluminium broke. Probably because the left motor stopped working and seized up. I'm wondering if I can just make it go easier manually ? It seems like the motor is making it hard to move the top manually. Maybe by removing the motor ? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
