I took the regulators out of my Fordor. They have four bolt holes to mount them. Are these unique to the Fordor or do other models have the same regulators?
The gears have teeth missing. I can't find gears to rebuild them.
Has anyone tried to weld new teeth on the gear and file them down with success?

I had the gear strip on one of the doors on my '27 Fordor also. I was lucky and found a good used replacement, but that was many years ago.

I would think welding new teeth on the gear and carefully filing them would work.

Please let us know how it turns out.

Thanks, Keith

I am looking at the way the housings are attached to the main plate. They look like a rivit

Langs had/has replacement gears for the fordor window mechinism.

Steel framed bodies used 3 hole mount regulators. Fordors used 4 hole because of the wood still used in fordor bodies, a continuation from earlier fordors.

The 4 screw mount was carried over to the Model A 4 door. The rest of the bodies got 3 screw mount except for The Victoria and 400A but they are a whole different ball game.

I rebuilt two regulators with the kit from Lang's with no problem at all. I don't recall the rivets being a problem.

I had the machine shop cut the small gears on their water jet table. they fit perfect. They are 12 teeth gears. I have extras if anyone needs them.
