    It's a 'universal fit'. Universal means it don't fit anything, unless you make it fit. I hate that shit, but you'll get it... I have confidence!

    The problem is having the needed room to mount the track ..
    Instructions states at least a inch, there is 1/4" that is there now ..
    The door handle has a long flat rod that runs from handle to the door latch .. That is causing the problem !

    Been in the think tank on how to move the latch rod to the outside of the inner door skin ...
    Will be screwing up the door panel if I did that mod ..
    Could move the track to the other side of the glass, But would need to make supports to run from one end of the door to the other and weld in ... Simple job just became colossal ..

    My plan to cure this dilemma is load the kit on Facebook Marketplace and recoup some of the money spent ..
    And go to plan "B" which should had been plan "A" ....
    (I would had done plan "B" in the first place if I hadn't had smoke blown up my butt)

    Plan "B" is to take the Oem window regulators and send them off to a Fellow that adds a power unit onto them ..
    Twice the money that was spent for the ill fated ones that I bought, but, will be a bolt-in deal with no modifications to the door. (I like that part)

    There is no room for the track to work on the inner door skin ... If it was mounted to the other side of the glass it would have more than enough room ...
    But, I would need to make up supports ... More welding and fabrication than I would want to do ...

    Plan "B"

    Oh I thought it was the latch rod that was in the way and a good heavy cable to one side of where the rod ran would clear up some real-estate.

    Good thought ...

    But, there's that dang but again, the latch rod is dual action ... Pull up on the door handle opens the door, push down locks the door ...

    Here's a bit of nutty that International people did until the late fifties, there is no key lock on the driver's door ! (They wasn't the only ones that did this, the Model T had a nonfunctioning driver's door, wasn't till the introduction of the Model A that had a functioning door)

    What you had to do was lock the door from the inside then slide your ass over and out the passenger door which has a outside key lock..
    They did that to keep you from stepping into traffic ...

    Watched an old 1955 B rated monster flick over the weekend (Tarantula) and they had several scenes where the actors get in/out of their cars when parked in town by sliding across the seat and to the passengers side.
    Course they used both doors when the giant spider got after them ...



    (Dang ol' spider got good taste in women)

    Not going to load the wire looms until the windows are done ..
    Need to make sure they will have room to work around the window regulators ...

    Must say that I like the way you think, Sir ...

    But I have come to a conclusion that this power unit is way to ....



    for my ol' truck ... !!

    I got screwed with the 30 day return policy since it's been sitting in a corner of the shop for months ... Just now found out it's a POS at least for my application ...

    Somebody is going to get a deal on Facebook Marketplace ...

    Does a few things more than lock & unlock the doors ..
    Locks the ignition, flashes the parking lights and toots the horn ...

    AND ....

    Just for having a key lock on the driver's door is this Nos part I found ...




    (Pretty dang wild running up on 70 year old new parts)

    Most likely there will be little need for the lock, but just in case the power lock system goes off line, it's there for back-up ..

    My door lock never seemed very secure to me (on the 52)...Lots of play in everything. If I still had it I'd probably fit some sort of solenoid locks. Very cool finding that stuff tho!

    Will you be adding any kind of security/antitheft system? I think that these days I definitely would.

    ________________________________________

    The plan ...

    Door latch is in grand shape for being as old as it is ...
    Did a cleanup and lubricated it ...

    Came out of the think tank with this idea on how to hook up the actuator..



    See the black dot ... At that spot will weld on a extension bout 3/4" long that's been drilled and tapped for one of these ...
    Edit; Not going to do the extension, will spin out a standoff to weld on ...

    Should work really well, got an abundance of throw on the actuator, soon shall see if this idea holds water or not ..

    Refined the joints, RC car M2 ....

    Cool use of RC joints. I'll file that in my brain bank.

    I am enjoying the truck build more than I care to admit, however, wasn't there a bike associated with this thread at one point, lol!

    There are two waiting in the wings ...

    farmall's motor parts are all here, just need to put some hours into it and it'll be done ..

    The other is the 53 that's sitting next to the truck ...
    Got to pull the motor and do a tear down .. Then get with the owner to find out how he wants to build it back ...

    Hoping the heat will die down some so I can do away with the sweat band tied to my head (No fun having to change it to a dry one on the half-hour) and spend time on these motors.



    __________________________________________________ _____________

    On the truck ....
    Looking at least a year of work that it will take to get it back to looking like a new (1954) truck again ...

    Still have mega work to do on the fenders ...
    Adding 3" to the rear and a bit of slice & dice yet to do on the R-140's in order to use them with the R-100 running boards ...

    Rule of thump: change one thing and 10 others will need to be done in order to make that one work .. !!

    Need to pull the motor on it in order to work the firewall ... Got a bunch of holes to weld up in order to net a smoothie and mount up the A/C evaporator .. Did acquire a re-pop firewall insulator for inside ...

    Ah yes, the heat forgot about that, lol.

    I am amazed at the repop stuff available for those old trucks.
