Default Newbie needs convertible Help!

Hello members. Looking for some help on a 1963 convertible top operation. My friend Pat died earlier this year and I was helping him put this car back together. All was well until his wife and I put the top up one day. Now the top is stuck in the up position. Switch has power in and out. Where do I go from here? If I need to buy a manual, any suggestions where? Thanks all.

You need to buy a manual and then spend time studying it. Vintage T-bird parts vendors have reproductions of the shop manual (for '63 you have to get both the '62 shop manual and '63 supplement). The '62 manual will contain a section on the convertible top while '63 will contain information on changes made in electrics. There is also available a copy of just the convertible top portion of the shop manual. Jim Osborn Reproductions in Georgia is the primary source for reprints like this - do a Google search and you should be able to find and buy one on-line.
