    First, please, if I need a junkyard top motor, is the one in the
    Sebring the same as the one in the Lebaron convertible?

    Second, please, my motor works intermittentently. It was perfect,
    then 9 out of 10 times, then 2 out of 3 times for a while, and I have
    a spare one I was going to disassemble and recondition.

    Then I fainted 14 times, broke my arm, and also had intestinal surgery
    the same night.

    Yestday was 19 days and I drove for the first time. At the end of the
    trip, I had to hit the top motor 3 sets of times before the top would
    go up. Never had to hit it more than 2 sets of times before and
    usually only once or not at all.

    Are there brushes that are hanging up, and hitting the motor makes
    them fall back to a commutator? Are the brushes worn out. Are they
    standard that I can get at a motor repair supply shop in this city?

    What am I doing when I hit the motor with a wrench and then it
    A tribute to Erols/RCN/Starpower which took away newsgroups,
    without giving any notice, in advance or when they did it!!

    And a real tribute to
    which starts at 3 dollars for 12 gigs a month,
    including alt, misc, the big 8 and everything else, 12 gigs is
    far more than someone who dl's mostly text should ever need.
