Yes, but…

This just goes to show that if you don't ask the right question, you probably won't get the right answer.

I'm swapping an AMC 360 V8 into a 1985 258 I6 J10. (The 258...

So I'm looking for wire damage?

And the fuse that likes to blow that...

A couple of months ago I posted about my half-dead left side passenger window. (THIS IS NOT THE REAR TAILGATE WINDOW!)

It's still half-dead. The problem is it operates down, but not up.

Since then...

The cruise in my '83 Wag has always worked. Until last night. Zipping down the highway I turned it on and it just started continuously speeding up. It would normally pick up 2-4 mph above the set...

OK, still not working.

I finally got the window motor replaced. No difference. Still operates down, but not up. And, to reiterate, I've swapped window switch pigtails from both sides.

But I have...

Has anyone doing this upgrade ever wound up with a really hot wire under the hood?

I did the front door and by the time it was all over, I think I concluded if I'd known what I was doing I wouldn't have had to yank the whole assembly. But I had to yank it all to find that out.

89grand's in the game. I'm not talking about the tailgate. It's the rear side passenger door window motor.

Huh?

I have the motor out, so of course I pulled the door panel. That's how I changed the switch & the pigtail. The gears all look fine, and the plastic track is intact.

I took apart the switches from my '68 Fury to clean them. There are tiny little springs inside that are easy to lose.

And to get them apart you have to pry back a clip-like piece that broke off....

Did I read this right? kyjman, you use flux core AND gas at the same time?

When I say "it doesn't work" I mean the Wag won't go. I hit the gas and the motor revs and it's in "Drive", but nothing's engaged and it doesn't go. Then I flip to 4WD and it goes.
