Thanks! We added some JB weld to fill in the gaps in the gears and I just put it all back together again.

Now that I've taken it apart and understand how it all works, it appears to be installed 1-2" too low, which would be a nightmare to fix and keep the crank where it needs to be. It worked great once it started... until I went to show the wife. The glass and gears went wonky.

She approved an electric system because it would be much easier to install. I'd like to keep it manual, but I don't want to do triginometry to figure out the installation. Does anyone know of a manual window regulator that is all vertical like a AutoLoc Flat-Glass Power Window Conversion Kit or Electric Life EL1000-K Flat Glass Power Window Kit.
