Wiper motors?

Original and compatible parts

Postby ckhorne » Tue Apr 30, 2019 8:40 pm

I'm working on my main restoration project, and I've painted my windshield and am starting to reassemble, but it wasn't until today that I realized that my original wiper motors don't fit on my replacement windshield frame. My original is a 1967. I'm not sure what year the frame that I have is, but everything else is very close.

Here's the pattern on my original frame:

And here's the pattern on the new frame:

I looked up the parts listing and saw this:

It appears that it's the same motor with a different bracket - is this accurate? Or do I need to try to find two wiper motors that fit that design?

Incredible! First time that I see that, but since I modified mine years ago, can't remember much.

What you need to do is go find the rest of the wagon :twisted: :twisted:

One solution will be to drill the matching holes for the wiper motors that you have, and use self-tapping screws instead of the captive nuts. I did that when I installed the two wiper system from a 74 into my 65. It's been like that for almost 20 years without any problem.

Hmm... I suppose that's an option, although if I had known that, I would have patched the holes and captive nuts I have now. I could always put some screws in there to make it more hidden, but I'd rather figure out other options first...

I can take a look at some of the motors I have, see if anything matches.

Thanks - I'd appreciate it! I'd be happy to trade - the two I have are in good working condition.

If you have working wiper motors you are 99% there. Be thankful. The rest is easy.

Good to know - I didn't realize that working ones were hard to find.

Should I try to rebuild them while they're off the truck, or just clean up the exterior and screw them back in?

They are so important because they need to be working to get a state inspection sticker. Personally, I'd send them off now. Contact Then and Now Auto in the Boston area at 781-335-8860. It is best you know your position on these sooner rather than later. Same with Brake Master Cylinder push rod and seals. They can fix those too.

Pfft. Welcome to Georgia, where we don't worry about pesky things like windshield wipers. In fact, there is no state inspection - annual or otherwise. Once the vehicle is registered (which is a matter of paperwork), I pay an annual $20 registration fee, but no inspections, ever. And being more than 25 years old, no annual emissions tests.

I used Then and Now Auto before for some other things, but it's good to know they can repaid the wiper motors. I'll likely clean them up and just put them back on for now.

Well...that is just peachy. I've heard it never rains in Southern California, now Georgia too?

Brackets are easy to make if that fixes your problem but since the motors are not really needed anyway please send me your motors and I will send you new ones from Jegs. I'll go back up this thread then I'll go look through my wiper box for your brackets though I don't recall brackets, just junk motors.

If only... we're getting flooded this year. :( Mine still work, but it'll honestly never be an issue - I doubt I'll take my finished Patrol out in the rain.

It's looking like I'll end up making some brackets or just going with self-tapping screws at this point.

The windshield obviously was from an early Patrol, '65 or earlier. The wiper motor pattern matches that for the early wiper motor, pictured. If you use your existing wiper motor you'll have to drill out the center hole for the wiper arm shaft as well, since it was thicker for the later wiper motors.
