Power Top Question
« on: January 24, 2010, 08:44:12 PM »
I have pulled the interior out of my 67' convertible and my power top has not worked since I bought the car a year and half ago. The pump seems to work but after further inspection it seems to be out of ATV fluid. Once I resemble and fill does anyone know how to bleed the system? Not sure if there is a leak somewhere but I am sure I will find out soon enough. There is lots of air in the lines but no where that I can see to bleed them?

Anyone worked on this before, or have a site that I can do some research?

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

I've never owned a rag top or a 67 but the 66 service manual says check fluid levels when the "top is up". What I remember from a 64 1/2 convertible I helped to restore, remove the rear seats, cycle the pump, fill the reservoir, repeat. If you are concerned, I would remove the tubing to one of the cylinders to see if the pump is working. It will be messy. That will probably bleed the line too. I think that the pump is higher than the two pistons so air will get forced to the pump when you cycle the top. Also, get a 67 service manual.

Hey Jim,
Thanks for the advise, now where do you recommend purchasing a 67' service manual?

Try National Parts Depot http://www.npdlink.com/ You can get a manual in book form or on disc. I prefer paper because I can make notes about what I did.
