C4(1986) power seats in a C3 ( 77.)

I am trying to install 86 seats in a 77 vette. Do I need a custom plate for the rails? Where is the best place to draw power and how should it be connected to the various plugs on the power seats?

Thanks

Peter

Yes you will need to make your brackets. and the best place to get your power from is the battery but put a inline fuse or braker.or you could put in a relay that come on with the key?

Power seat


Most Fordicon1.png products are designed so the seat belt latch by the center console moves with the seat. The bottom of the latch rides on the seat rail, and with time sometimes it builds up a little play on the rail. As the seat moves forward or back, the seat belt guide often tilts forward or back, just a bit, on the rail, and gets stuck. So you can move forward or back just a bit, but then it jams and you can hear the motor, but can go no further.

The long term fix is to remove the seat, disassemble the seat belt guide and rail, and usually replace some parts.

But the short term solution is often to simply hold on to the seat belt latch and rock it forward and away from the seat as you try to go forward or back. Or, sometimes it works besticon1.png to rock it backwards and away from the seat as you try to move forward or back. It all depends on which way it is binding.

There's no guarantee that it won't jam again if you move it all the way back or forward, but once you find the right position to hold the seat latch in while moving the seat, you should be able to re-adjust it where you need it to be.

1999 Chevy 1500 with power seats rocks forward or backward on breaking and acceleration.


You said "rocks forward and backwards not sliding.
upon that knowledge I would check the seat rails and see if they are still connected to floor of your truck. Sound as either the rail has disconnected at front or rear mount.
A simple fix is to replace bolt with new and installing an oversize washer or plate to underside of truck when installing replacement bolt

Trying to change beanch seat to bucket seats what will interchange


You can put any bucket seat in the car. You'll just need to add spacers between the floor and the seat rails and create holes for the bucket seats to bolt to the floor. I have a 70 El Camino street rod and have bucket seats in it. I installed the outer seat rails to the factory bolt holes the best I could and created the inner 2 holes and added a couple of spacers to level the seat and make sure it was straight.
