63 Thunderbird convertible top help

1963 Thunderbird convertible.
Hi all,

Can someone guide me to a place where I can get information on a 1963 Ford Thunderbird retractable convertible top? I am replacing the deck lid tray motor on it and am having serious problems getting it working again. I think that I blew one of two important circut breakers that control the top mechanism itself and cannot find them.

Has anyone out there worked with a early 60's Ford retractable top? I is a softtop but it is very mechanized where the back lid lifts up hydraulically and the entire convertible top folds in there using many solenoids, switches and pumps.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks very much,

Jim Lee
