Re: Power Antenna?
Hirschmann (sp?) is another company to look at. I think Metra electronics also sells them. Harada is also another name to put out there.
On power antenna's do not lube them up with anything that will attract dust and dirt and stick to the sections of the mast. When dirt and dust get stuck to the sections of the mast it makes the motor and clutch work harder and wear things out quicker. A good choice for lube might be graphite ?.
Most power antenna's to also have a drain nipple on them and a flexible hose attaches to this and gets routed to the exterior of the vehicle. On this you want to have it in place and keep it unclogged so water does not build up inside the motor drive assembly.
