Hope the new resizing attempt works. This is my '25 coupe showing the powered entry step I built for easier entry as the original running board is almost 17" from the ground. I used a 1954 Lincoln power seat motor and mounted switches at both sides of the seat just above the floor level. Bruce

Clever! The '54 Lincoln would have been 6 Volts.

Brilliant! Can't wait to see the Youtube video of the power step in action. :-)

The best part was that the power seat motor/gear drive had an automatic over-ride clutch at both ends of the travel so that the motion stopped even if you held the switch on too long. I wanted to keep it 6 volts and had been trying to figure a way to use micro-switches to stop the travel before I discovered the power seat set-up. Surprisingly, some people think it's a factory option, especially when the see the "FORD" script in the cut up running board. Bruce

Mark , I have a video, but it's 31MB and I don't know how to resize it if that's even possible. I can send it in an email if you want. Bruce

Don't resize it, just post it on Youtube, then post a link to the Youtube video here, like this:

Sorry Mark. I'm not computer savvy enough. Might as well ask me to land the lunar module. if you send some instructions, I'll try though.(not the lunar module). Bruce

Bruce, I sent you a PM, check your email. If not there, check your spam folder. :-)

My standard advice when people are stumped by computer stuff is Get some kid to teach you how. The important word is teach, not show.
