Anyone know a good source for manual window regulators? I had a pair of the Lmc ones fail on me almost immediately after installation and am back to using my worn out stock units. This is for a ‘73 single cab.

Classic Industries is probably a safe bet.
That being said, there’s a new old stock RH side regulator on ebay right now for $55 + $22 shipping (search GM 6270870)

Edit: by searching 6270869, ebay is showing a LH side regulator for a whopping $135.95 (obo) + $31.63 shipping. Not sure if you got that F’You money but you’d have direct replacements lol

I appreciate it, my original regulators are working their just not as good as they once were. I might look into classic industries next time I have the doors apart. I’m just hoping that some of the new production stuff is up to snuff, the lmc ones both went into the trash can.

I’d have to go back to find where I bought new regulators (it was not LMC), but I’m not impressed by the results.

I installed both new regulators and new window felt, and my windows are still hard to roll up and down. I can work them okay, but they are tight enough that my wife needs two hand to move them up and down. Maybe it’s an adjustment needed, but I couldn’t get it any better.

is your channel piece that is welded to the door not bent, straight, and lubricated? since that has to let the thing roll in it, maybe it got slightly bent into the ball thing or doesnt allow it to smoothly transition

@Jacob Miller,

Classic Industries. That's where I got mine. I haven't put it in yet but they look pretty sturdy.

I have a set of manual window mechanisms out of my 76.
I have 4 sets of manual ones and one set of power window ones.

Let me know how you like em, I managed to re-adjust and lube my stock regulators to get them working a little better but it’d be nice to have them like new again
