Thunderbird Convertible Top Pivot Arm

Discussion in '2002 - 2005 Ford Thunderbird' started by jimtcrowe, Apr 14, 2017.

  1. I recently had a pivot arm break on my convertible top latch. Unable to find the discontinued part at a reasonable price, I had a local shop machine me a new arm and also had a few extra made.

    If you have this problem I can sale you the pivot arm, the bushings, and a new designed pin to allow simple installation. By using the new pin instead of a roll pin, this does not require disassembly saving you several hours of work.

    If you have a need for this part, contact me at jimtcrowe@msn.com and use tbird pivot arm in the subject line.

    This new pivot arm is made from steel rather than cast so it should not have any future problems as it is superior to the original. You need to save you old j-hook and spring to reuse.
