Hey guys! Anyone know if I you can rebuild a driver's side window regulator, or do I need to get a new one?

Try these folks for parts. I've replaced a couple crank studs. Boils down to how much time you spend repairing vs replacing. A long time ago an old boy told me that "If it is steel, it can be repaired."

I rebuilt one in a 54. Honestly, the best solution is to be a GOOD used one (easier said than done but possible), second a new Chinese knockoff (quality sometimes questionable) and third rebuild what you have. The studs aren't bad to do but if the gear teeth is stripped, riveted loose, etc. it takes time and often isn't worth it. Good luck.

I rebuilt one of mine and several on other old cars. My .02 is....
#1 Good used
#2 Rebuild yours with good used pieces
#3 Nos if you can find it, but $$$
A repo if you must, but just to hold you over until you decide on #1-3.

Go to ebay motors website. Type in 53 F100. Go to page 2. A guy has two .He has taken out both regulators to install power windows and starting bid at $40.00. They would be well worth it for that price.

Can you use parts from the passenger side to fix the drivers side?

Well....... I found a deal on a repop for $40 so I went for it. Today it stopped working. Acts like stripped gears. Should a known! Figured I'd get by till I could replace or rebuild the old one. Oh well..... I don't think it lasted a month. 😕

I have one that looks to be in good shape, splines on handle crank shaft look good, all teeth are there on regulator, probably needs new roller mechanisms. You can have if you can come get it or arrange shipping or send me the shipping costs I'll box it and send it to ya. Another way is I'll be in Morro Bay CA for the North South run, if you are coming or know anybody in the pick-up Limited F-100 club who is going I would be glad to give to them just need info
