Hello all, I am currently installing my new door panels and figured it was a good time to get the power windows working well on my 64 deviled convertible. I replaced all the felts and window channel, greased all the tracks, and replaced the window motor with a remanufactured one figuring that the old one didn't have enough power anymore to raise the window. It still does not work very well. When you hit the switch up, it seems as if the rear of the widow goes up first and pushes the front into the wing window and jams up. I have to help the window up and down. Played with alignment for over an hour with little improvement if any. Any suggestions? Any shops around Milwaukee wi that have experience with this? Thanks in advance

Are the regulator rollers engaged?  It sounds like one is not in the track.  Or the vent window is not aligned.  Close the door and look at the inside of the A pillar vs. the trim/edges on the vent window. They should be even up and down the A pillar. 

Yes rollers are in the track and vent window is aligned. Lines up nice with the door closed
Did you install any new parts ,regarding the window traveling mechanisum or are they the same ?
Could the new rubber and felt installed be slowing the window down ?

I do remember adjusting my window , took me a very long time to adjust correctly ,as i had my door pannel off for about a week , studing how it worked , before i got the window to work as it should
Sounds to me like you need to play with the adjustment ,as i found i had to do
As handy as i am around cars ,i found this to require more time than it should
I think the new felt may be too thick and is restricting the window movement just did the drivers side with the same result
