  • convertible deck lid adjustments

    this is on my 63 convertible but applies to 60 Squarebirds too. just replaced my top pump/motor works fine now. having trouble adjusting the deck lid opening. it hesitates and then jumps open. i have played with the receiver screws and the deck lock limit switch. shall i turn the screws in or out to allow it to open smoothly? shall i raise or lower the limit switch? would like it to open smoothly. it seems the pump motor is actuating before the screws have released. thanks as always. i know its trial and error and fine adjustments.

    If the pump starts before both screw locks release then your limit switch is too low and you need to raise it. It's definitely trial and error. Small adjustments make a big difference. If it happens to only one lock then try lowering (screwing clockwise) that lock receptacle.
