Today one of my co-workers, a young feller, he learned something very valuable. It was when you remove the power window motor out of an old style window regulator, always put a bolt thru the hole to keep the spring from whipping it back and almost cutting your finger off! He left tonight in some pain with an ice pack on his hand.

Opening up the inner fender panels helped but a carb system worked better.
