I am looking for advise on diagnosing what is causing my 1968 convertible power top to not function. I can get very, very slight movement from it when I hit the switch.
Is it the pump motor, hydraulic oil level or what? I was hoping for some guidance before I start to rip into it piece by piece.
The top is stuck in the full down position.

Is the pump actually working? If so, I would check the fluid level in the pump. The level should be even with the filler hole. It sounds like the level is down. Try this first.
