window regulator for a 1969

My son's 69 C10 window regulators are pretty shot. The drivers side is obviously worse off, but I a looking to gt both. I looked at GMCPaul and Brothers, they are both the same price, so I am wondering if either is better than the other. I have dealt with Brothers many times, and they have always been good, but GMCPaul is a member/sponsor here if I remember correctly. Also, how difficult are they to put in?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks RR

Re: window regulator for a 1969

Personally if those are the choices...gmc Paul. They care more about us. Also, if u have a question, they have the people to answer it better. As for the regulator, they arenít bad after u have taken 1 out a time or 2. Roll the window down about 1/2 way. U should b able to c the channel on the bottom of the glass at this point. There is a brace at the back, running at an angle for the back of the glass. There are 2 screws holding it . U will need to help him at this point. Itís easier if u have a third hand. (Lol) if heís gonna go it alone, have him use duct tape to hold the window at the 1/2 way mark then take the brace off. Take a minute, with a light and look at the window channel. U will find that there is a place along the channel that is cut out. If u canít see it, use your finger to feel for it. That is where the rollers on the regulator go on. By removing the brace, u will b able to slide the window back and tilt it up to get the rollers off the channel. The front roller is the hardest cause itís up n the door and u just canít see it as well like the back roller. The regulator itís self is just held on by a couple of screws at the handle. U can use a small screwdriver to get the clip off of the handle (They are called the ďJesus clipĒ. Let 1 fly off and u will know why the name fits) when u go to put the new 1 on, put the front roller n and slide it up this way u have the hardest 1 on without having to feel for the cut out. U can also mark the spots with blue masking tape or put a mark on the channel to help u know how far u are away from the cut out. I found this to b an easier way when I changed mine out. The brace I just left far to the bottom of the door. Itís outa the way and itís not a big deal to get back n place once u get the new regulator back on. The felt just sits n the brace and u can push it back n place with your hand and a small screw driver if needed. I just used my thumb and it went right back n without a fuss. Iím sure there are a few you tube videos on this and it may help u understand it better before u start. For me the first 1 was the hardest. I took my time to see how it all worked. On the other side it went quick because I had the trial and error behind me .

Re: window regulator for a 1969

I got a very nice one from H&H Classic Parts, a family run business. Those guys do not sell second rate products. In fact, I think it was regulators they didn't carry for a while until they started getting good ones from Taiwan.

Re: window regulator for a 1969

I bought mine from Classic Industries.. At the same time, I bought all the window channel pieces, along with vent window hardware and weather seals for both doors. I buy a lot of their stuff because the quality and customer service is very good..

Now that I'm getting my 69 back, I'll have to check out GMC Paul. Have always heard good things about them.

Re: window regulator for a 1969

I am not a big fan of Brothers.
However they are not the worst out there.
An order with GMC Paul's would support the little guy.

I wrote/emailed Classic about an order and received the answer the day before my parts arrived. At least they answered.

I've had good luck with Classic Parts and Brothers, but their website parts descriptions are nowhere near as detailed as GMC Paul's. In fact, some are vague at best.

I get the impression from GMC Paul's website that they actually work on trucks using their parts.
