Window Lifter Rod Rebuild kit Instructions
The window lifter rod rebuild kit provides the parts necessary to replace the spring at the bottom of the woindow lifter rod.
This kit fits those cars with the "Swing Lever and Notch" style lifters. This style came out on the 1922 Centerdoor Sedan and
Coupe door windows using a 1/4 inch diameter rod. Shortly after it's introduction, the diameter of the rod was increased to 5/16 inch.
This kit was designed for the 5/16inch diameter rods. It is possible that the spring can be used on the 1/4 inch rod but this has
not been verified.
