Default Replacement antenna

The auto retractable AM radio antenna on my 67 S&S was damaged. I believe the motor is still intact, but I need a new mast. Any suggestions? Thanks!

They come apart easy, but they don't go back together easy.

Should have bought a Corvair!!! If you think that that mast is expensive, you should see how much a 1978 AM/FM/CB antenna will bring. Add the radio into the equation, and you are over $???? What do you think that your Pontiac ambulance is worth today???.....

Before you spend any money, Test it. A bad ground or. A corroded connection may be your troubles. The antenna grounds threw the shaft one wire goes up the other down. So ground direct to the battery and jump one terminal then the other. if the motor runs and the shaft doesn't its broken if it doesn't run you need a new unit. If it goes up and down with the jumpers but not when plugged in clean the plug keep the ground jumper and see if it works then. I'm dufe you know you push and pull the tuning knob on that one to make it work. Of course if its laying on the fender the problem is apparent.

Thanks Ed. The motor does work. Some @#$& bent and crimped the mast so that's all that needs to be replaced.

Thumbs up Electric antenna

My 79 Seville has AM-FM-CB. Yes, CB... so the antenna is probably a little different. If you want to send it out to have it analyzed and fixed, the only place I found was https://www.theantennasource.com. I had to have a body shop take it out for me - looks like the fender has to come off! Obviously this business is called the antenna source. They are very helpful.
