    Geez, you got me all excited. I've been looking all over for a window motor for my tailgate on the 76. Sure enough, that part number is 78-91 :mad:

    I am pretty sure the window motors are all the same for any rear gate window on a blazer.

    I'm looking for broken/non-working rear window motors. If you're going to toss it then would it be possible for me to take it off your hands?

    That is what I am hoping. My motor I have now works, but I think I have wiring issues. Knowing how hard they are to find, I want a new one to swap in and keep the old one as a backup.

    I have a good used motor i'll sell you. I'll take $50.00 plus the ride. I did some searching myself last night and they are about $100.00 new plus a $25.00 core charge. PM me if you want it.

    a thought...

    We used to swap power window motors onto others all the time at the junkyard..often the motor itself is the same,but the gear case is different--and its not a difficult job to drill or grind a few rivets out and swap a motor off some other application onto it,and use nuts and bolts to fasten them in place of the rivets..we would use a cars rear window motor on the front door this way,etc...:crazy:

    I think ive asked this previously, but how hard is it to convert from power rear window to Manual? Can all the parts be had from LMC? Are they jus drop in and exchange parts? Ive taken the panel off and have no idea what im looking at or how it all works.

    Jus curious. Thanks

    Sorry, for being off topic and hi jacking. :D

    Be very careful messing around in there. I read a story on another K5 site where a guy snipped the end of a finger off when he started removing stuff to do the convert. The regulator is under tremendous spring pressure and slams shut like a giant pair of hedge shears. Somebody here posted a how to that showed how you have to use a C-clamp or vice to clamp down on the regulator to keep it from snapping. I was going to do the swap myself, but decided it was a PITA.
