    Hey all.. newbie, 53 Skylark

    I stumbled on this forum poking around the net. I'm currently repairing all the hydraulics (windows, seat, top) in my '53. Do any of you have any insight, tricks, things to avoid, when working on this system?
    I'm pretty well versed in old cars but have not messed with any of this stuff before. The pump is getting rebuilt, and I am replacing all the rubber lines and all the rams in the car. I will also be switching to ATF instead of hydraulic fluid.

    It's incredibly hard to find any information on this stuff at all and the '53 shop manual is no help whatsoever.

    Thanks,
    Steve
