WTB: looking for a convertable part!!!

Hey guys and gals, a guy i work with has a convertable, and the motor that runs the top up and down does not work. He has looked (as he says) everywhere, but i told him maybe FP could help. He owns a 1991 Pontiac Sunbird LE with a 2.0L 4banger. If any one has one for sale or knows of one, or knows where he could find one that would be great.


BTW he would rather not get a junkyard part if at all possible.



Thanks

Most verts are hydraulic, has he checked the fluid?

yes he says when he trys to run it, it sounds like it is just spinning in side.

I think this place might have what he is looking for.

Also, if the motor is indeed bad, why not take it out and take it to a local electric motor repair shop? I am sure that most places have experience with electric motors that drive hydraulic pumps. It might only cost $100-150 to repair the motor locally (and a week or less of down / repair time) vs. $229.00 +S&H.

im just trying to help this guy find the part, i asked him about just taking it to a shop but he was kind of leaning towards a new one. If it was mine i would take it to a shop, but its not. thanks frosty for the site. i will try and see if he just wants to take it to a shop first.
