April 23, 2007well i took a 98 mustang top and frame from a buddy of mine a 94 mustang , blown motor he junked the stang.... put it on mine cuz my top was ripped bad and needed replacemetn.... we bolted it up, did everything hooked up hydraulics and all the the top meets the winsdshiled perfect and seems fine..... UNTILL ME TRY TO PUT IT DOWN!!!!! its fine all the way untill the end then it seems like it gets jamed up the back window stays at a 70 degree angle and wont move!!! it gets to the point were if i had a plastic back window it would go all the way down..... weather outside is rediclously nice and im driven around wiyth the top up so anyone with advise or real life expericnce please post guys im dyen here. i was told that it needs adjusting what adjusments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
April 23, 2007Is there some sort of stop in the system? Like an end switch that needs adjusting?
I have no clue what to tell you other than maybe pick up a manual and read it for some troubleshooting tips.
April 23, 2007looked in the manual and only adjustmet it lists is windshield to hedaliner which is fine...... i dread bringen it to a top shop......
April 23, 2007You may have to do that.
I'm wondering if there is a way that the mototr could have spun causing it to think its all the way back when it really isn't.
The only way I can think of to explain it is to picture a 180 degree-movement pendelum. It would typiclly move from 3 to 9 on the clock. In this case maybe it was spun enough to make it want to move from maybe 5 to 11.
I'm thinking with my fingers and the bottom line is that I have absolutely no idea how these things work. I'm just tossing out some thoughts that may not even be applicable to anything, much less your problem.
April 23, 2007thanks for the input tho, ill check the pump out just in case
