Im trying to sort out a few things and hope someone can help.
Are there any other cars that use the same motor and/or geartrain; such as Corvette?
Are the right and left the same?
How about the output mount; does it matter which way it is bolted on to the main body?

I had lots of problems getting my hideaways to work but got lots of info here. Look in the electrical section and "search" hide aways.

Do you have the proper brackets to mount the motors?

There should be some earlier post about a replacement from the Grainger catalog, a 12 VDC parallel shaft gear motor No.4Z832 that is suppose to be very close,
Oops... that should be No.4Z837

I just bought the replacments from Rick's. However one side did not quite fit right. Required some mods to get it to work right.

Thanks to all for the referral to an older post and the Graingers info.
Below is what I posted earlier today to the Electrical forum.

The gears are all steel but the outer housing that they ride in is plastic.
One gear train is nice and shiny, just the old grease dried up. Also pulled the other end off, cleaned and relubed. Runs fine now.
The other one got water into the gears; took it all down to basics, derusted and put back together. The other end was also a mess but cleaned it all up and it purrs now.

Still want to find a backup and wonder if they are identical; right and left?
I have all the rest. Its a complete car, just been in boxes for years.

Thanks for the Grainger lead, there is one down the street from work.

The Grainger motor sounds promising for long term reliability. Not sure if its a higher torque motor ( more current required) or a slightly less gear reduction.

Ive been thru this insanity with Corvettes and early Toranodo's. Should know better by now.
