1967 Questions for all other cars V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic
I have a full custom 1940 Willys Coup. The car has a cadillac style trunk release mechanism. The mechanism works fine when closing. The trunk lid is pulled down by the motor and seated
The problem is on opening. When released the motor pushes the lid up, and then instead of releasing it to allow full opening it pulls it back down.
The trunk lid is supported by two gas pistons. One on each side. I have tried moving the locations on the mounts of the gas pistons to no aviail.
Is weight of the trunk lid a factor? Is the size of the gas pistons a factor? I really don't know what else to check to get this application to work correctly.
