Re: 68 RS With 67 Electric Motor to Open
You might want to check into the aftermarket headlight motors (I think it's retro -electric), I got a set off ebay for a 67 car that was cloned in appearance but not function. They bolted right in place of the original motors and work great. No additional switches or relays needed, they work right off the light circuit when you turn the lights on and off.
However, if you go through the trouble to hook up the original 67 motors correctly with all the switches, relays, and don't forget to add in the diode, just to find out the motors you have don't work you would likely be money ahead to just do the conversion.
Just a thought! If you have as little as I do now, TIME is MONEY !
I just checked the 67 replacement motors are $225 for the pair, the 68 & 69 conversion kits are $525 and $550.
His EBAY seller ID is sparkys67.
I don't know how I missed Marks post (above) but that's who I was referencing, he is very helpfull over the phone. I did call him before I bought mine and was going to put his # here but didn't see it in his current Auction.
