I will check it out tomorrow and see what I come up with. I believe I downloaded it. I went through all of them and downloaded them and I put them all together as one ďbookĒ using Adobe and combined them to put them all on my tablet. I actually just bought an original 59 service manual so now I will have a digital copy as well as a digital copy. I hate asking questions it makes me sound needy in my opinion. I really do appreciate the help I get from this forum. All the help that is given out to people that I have read threads on people donít say thanks. I just like to let people know how appreciated I am for the help

Yes this car is going to be a lifetime car right here I love it. Iíve dropped about 8k in it since February trying to make it better than it was when I got it. It had sat for decades so many fixes are unseen

Check your battery if fully charged, I have a window that stays down if the battery voltage is low but works fine when the engine is running. (It took me a while to figure that one out!)

Tom, sounds like you also have a grounding problem. Even with the engine off, windows should work just fine on 12 volts and a solid ground. - Dave

Rob,

The main purpose of this site is to help each other fix their cars. As great as the shop manual is it doesn't give answers to everything you may encounter. Remember that the manual is almost 60 years old and hasn't been updated to reflect modern technology. There are many things that have improved over the years and many shortcuts those of us who've worked on these cars have found. I hope you continue to ask questions as we all learn from each other no matter how old we are or how much we think we know.

John
