    My driver seat frame is in bad shape. The gear rod is bent and not fixable. The other part in picture is broken. I looked the usual places for parts but haven’t found what I need or it’s too expensive. I went to the Pull a Part and found a few Explorers but obviously the sliding rails won’t work. Does anyone the think the internals of the seats might work? I didn’t do any measuring but they look similar.

    I have one {seat base} from my `79. I replaced the entire driver side {frozen/rusted}. Don`t know if the parts you need are good? I can take pics if interested.
