1963-67 Vent Window Regulator Repair

Is your vent window regulator in need of repair? Save money by rebuilding your original regulator for a fraction of the cost of a new one. With only a few common tools and these simple instructions you can breathe new life into your tired vent windows. See for yourself how quickly you can rebuild this assembly.
  1. Drill off the rivets heads to remove the end plate (10) as noted in Image 1.
  2. Remove wave washer (9), worm gear (8) and thrust washer (7).
  3. Drill out the holes in the housing (6) where the rivets were located with a 13/64 bit, and then tap with a 1/4-20 tap.
  4. Remove the cap (1) by bending back the staked edges as noted in Image 2. Then remove all remaining parts. Thoroughly clean all parts and lube the worm gear and NEW gear.
  5. To re-assemble, first insert retainer (5), followed by the NEW gear (4). Then insert washer (3), plate (2) and cap (1).
  6. Next you must re-stake the edges to secure the cap. You will need to use a flat or round nose chisel to do this. Be sure that there is little to no end play after you re-stake.
  7. Place the thrust washer back, followed by the worm gear and the wave washer.
  8. Finally, place the end plate back on the housing and secure into the tapped holes with the NEW 1/4-20 screws (11) provided.

Additional Tools Needed:

  • 13/64 Drill bit
  • 1/4-20 Tap

1957-62 Muncie 4-Speed Linkage Installation

The 4-Speed transmission gearshift linkage utilizes three shift rods and levers. A simple gauge block will aid in making the proper adjustments. The adjustments can be made without the gauge block by having an assistant hold the manual shift lever in the neutral positions. Remove transmission gearshift lever seal from the floor pan.

  1. Place transmission in neutral and install gauge block in position as shown in illustration.
  2. Remove the cotter pin, anti-rattle washer and clevis pin at each shift lever.
  3. On each shift rod, adjust the threaded clevis to permit free entry on the clevis pin into the hole in the transmission shift lever.
  4. Reconnect the clevises to the shift levers.
  5. Remove the gauge block and check the shifts. If any roughness still exists, one of the clevises may require adjustment of approximately one-half turn. Determine the rod and clevis requiring adjustment by sighting along the slot where the gauge block was used in step 2.
