About the rack and pinion....I dug this tidbit up......

"The 1951 MG was the first rack-and-pinion equipped car to be sold in the United States."

Kevin did ask....."ONE of the 1st R&P's"....so I guess Pacer or Pinto would be as correct........LOL

Back to Russian trannys...........

OK.

What American-built car has ten electrical relays dedicated to operating the rear windows?

Well, it HAS to be a Ford, they were crazy with relays. I am going with a 58 Sunliner (If that is the model with the retractable roof) Or a 63 T-Bird or Lincoln conv. Too many guesses? Then I only want to use the right one, ignore the others.

Brian, you were right with the '63 Lincoln convertible.

The '61-69 Lincoln Continental convertibles had a complicated system of switches and relays that would automatically roll the rear door window down 4" when you opened the rear door. This was necessary because of the suicide rear doors. The rear door couldn't be opened if the window was all the way up, because the weatherstrip on the leading edge of the rear window would be trapped behind the front window frame.

So Lincoln devised a system of switches and relays (two of which are not on the factory wiring diagram) that would roll the window down 4" when the rear door was unlatched (unless the window was already down more than 4") and roll it back up when the door was closed.

FoMoCo sure knows how to over-complicate things. Here's a diagram of the power window circuit on a '65 Linc.


And speaking of complicated, here is the diagram for the convertible top:


Chasing down electrical problems on these Lincoln convertibles is one of my specialties. One of my customers collects these - he has over 100 of them. All I can say is...job security.


Anyway,
Brian, the floor is yours.
