[DML] Troubleshoot power windows

I've sorted out my fuel problems thanks to several people on the 
list.  Thank you all for your help thus far.  We have been driving 
the car around a bit and having fun (though I did get pulled over 
already).  I'm ready to address another problem.

Neither of my power windows work.  When I hit the switch my lights 
dim a bit, so I think that tells me that the switches are working.  I 
don't hear the motors trying to do anything though.  I am pretty sure 
the motors are OE.  I have read that they are prone to failure.  Is 
there something else to check besides the motors themselves?  Should 
I just assume that both my motors have failed and replace them?  I 
would like to test them before I drop the cash if there is a simple 
test that can be preformed.  I think I could just apply 12 volts to 
the right connection on the harness coming out of the motor; as this 
would bypass my wiring, any relays, switches, and such, and determine 
if the motor is shot.  Does anyone know which wire gets power to roll 
the window down?  Any thoughts on replacement motors or other ideas 
concerning my windows?  The car is an 81.
Thank you.
Steven Clark
