Default 35-37 window regulators (PU v Passenger) 39 stsndard generator

I have some regulators I know are 35-37 but the "arms" are of different lengths. I believe the longer ones are PU and the shorter are sedan. 6 3/4 vs 7 5/8 center to center, pivot point and center of lug at end of arm. Can you help? Also what is a rebuilt 39 Standard generator worth, script vs non script

Window regulators are pictured in the FoMoCo Hardware and Trim book along with the info on year and body type that they fit. I am away from my book at this moment but I recall that 1935 and 1936 differed primarily in the number of mounting holes, 6 one year, then 8. In both years the Tudor & Fordor used the same regulators and they also used the same as Sedan on 5 window Coupe and Sedan Delivery.

Yes. thanks, but I'm talking about trucks vs. passenger cars. trim book sort of differentiates between them as far as pictures are concerned but do not give arm lengths. It looks like PU arms are longer which strengthens my belief, but I want to be sure because I want to sell 'em.

Also beware, Plymouth/Dodge of the 1935-39 era used some regulators that were very very close (but not interchangeable) with Ford.

Many years ago I restored a '37 Ford pickup, during the process I bought and parted out five trucks. I still have several parts in my garage from the '37 project. I know that I have some '37 window regulators, I checked out my parts and found a pair of '37 trk regulators. They are marked as being 37 Ford trk..
I'll take a couple of pix of a regulator and post it to this tread..

Please measure the "arms" from center pivot to center of pivot at the business end, where the knob fits into the channel. Thanks

I measured the arms on the '37 regulator that I have. The arms are 7-3/8" from the center attachment rivet to the center of the window tract attachment lug. Measured to the OD of the attachment lug, the arm is 7-3/4".
