Default WINDOW REGULATORS for '36 Ford pickup

I have the new window regulators and window channels for my '36 ford pickup. I want to install them and was wondering from the two photos attached if I have the orientation correct.
I know the window channels are correct because they are stamped and marked RH (right hand/passenger side) and LH (left hand/drivers side). I was wondering if I have the window regulators correct as shown (window regulators were not marked or stamped LH/RH). Photo 001 should be for the LH/Drivers side).
Please let me know back if I have the window regulators correct for RH and LH.


Thank you,

36 Pass car and PU "look" to be the same, but arms are shorter on one of them, but not sure which ones are longer. PU I think. What do yours measure from center to center of the pin on the LARGE cogged wheel to center of pin AT END OF ARM? (CLEAR AS MUD.) ?? lol.

Best way to tell which is which is to remember that the shaft that the handle mounts to comes through the trim panel, and the big rectangular base mounts flat up against the door inner structure from the passenger compartment. (Again, clear as mud)

As a rule of thumb; when looking at regulators, just remember when the spring is tight the regulator is in the down position, when the spring is relaxed the regulator is in the up position. The winder knob location will then tell you which side you have.
