Power seat track for 65


Moved from the seat track for sale thread. Carl, here is the mechanism, missing one track with the mount. Maybe a non pwr track will work? seat.JPGseat 2.JPG Here's what I had to do to the switch. The knob was missing so I used a wiper knob that matches the dash ones. seat 3.JPG

The piece missing would be a "glider" with nylon inserts that it slides on. It could be fabricated but it would not be easy.

Does the motor run? Do the cables spin but no track movement?

Maybe you didn't get this pm I sent, ... The unit works, but when I first got it, the motor worked and it moved, (either back front or up down - don't remember) but the other functions just made noise. Upon dismantling it, I found one of the worm gear units was turning out of the end of its housing, not stripped but under load the gear just spins out. I was able to fabricate something to make it work and all functions now work.... however, when I went to mount it , I discovered part of the slide track was missing and no idea what it is or looks like, so you can't mount a seat to it. It's been a couple years so I will dig it out on the weekend and snap some shots so you can see what I mean.

Yes I did. I'm sorry, I should have replied to that as well.

I must have been snoozing when I read all this....!

For the most part I'm still pretty sharp for 112 but this one slipped by me...

I just checked my box of seat track stuff. Sorry, no parts in there at all that would help you. I used to have a track similar to that one for parts but I must have sold it.
