What is it exactly that you are working on?
51 chevy project truck, friend found a power antenna in storage that could be made to work with washers in counter sunk hole on rear fender.
Ok, a relay is just going to switch the 12 volts from the battery and direct it to the antenna. So I would just work with the antenna for right now and make sure it works, that is the motor part. How many wires are to the antenna and what color are they?
Is there a brandname on the antenna?
I believe I may have found someone describing that relay and antenna.

I think you may have hit on the head, have to check this out tomorrow if have an opportunity. I assume radio supplies 12 volt to activate relay? Motor works fine, not sure about relay.
ok, let me know
Owner said he has bought another antenna setup, most likely will be at least a few more before get back to radio but will try to get back to you on this setup if can ........
