New Window Regulator w / framed glass (1960)

Hey All,

I've been fighting a replacement window regulator replacement on my 1960 c10 with the framed glass window - I've tried to search Youtube and the internet, but it seems like most people are dealing with the frame less glass.

The window / regulator kind of fell apart in my hands, so i'm having a hard time working out the correct order of operations to get this back together and functioning.

I got the vent window out and I got the window out and I got the regulator (with the clutch heads out) and now I am having a hard time with re-assembly.

I can get the regulator in, and the idler(?) lined up, in on the channel on the door, and one of the rollers on the window channel, but I can't get to the point where I can get both rollers in parallel.

Are there any tricks or tips to get this back together - I have the green shop manual, but Im not really seeing an order of operations for what I am fighting.

Thanks,
Keith

This was my window install - does it help?

Re: New Window Regulator w / framed glass (1960)

Thank you, that's certainly the best video I've seen so far ...

"don't put this little piece in right now " "I'm planning ahead"

that may have been my problem - I found that in the bottom of the door and I did put it back in while attempting to mess with the door.

and im missing the channel on the latch side of the door it looks like

Just wanting to update this if anybody else is looking -

I think I am still missing some pieces, but installing the regulator in the door, and then installing the lower mount on the regulator, and then attaching the glass, ( the way Skinny G shows above ) was way easier then anything else, and I got it back together in about 5 minutes
