Russ,

Thanks for the diagram. That might help others that will want to "update" the 2-motor wiper system to the single one.

I pulled out this morning some yellowish diagrams that I did years ago, when I was implementing a push switch (horn type) mounted on the shifter lever so I can actuate the wipers at will. A single touch will make them go one cycle and return to rest. It worked. Later on I replaced that with a wiper delay system from Hella.

Unfortunately I have not marked all the colors of the connectors at the switch and at the motor, so your sketch is great. I will add the following color key from the harness at the switch connector that you have in the upper right corner:

Park ---------> Y
Washer -----> LB
Speed 1 ----> LW
E (Ground) ---> B
Speed 2 ----> LR

Just going back to my question regarding rubber caps for the wiper pivot shafts, it would seem, although not identical, (I know wash my mouth out with soap)
but the Toyota Land Cruiser part number 85135-90300 Windshield Wiper Pivot Cap is a pretty darn good fit and is available usually from

https://www.toyotapartsdeal.com/.../toy ... ~no~1~8513

for what I consider to be a reasonable price.
Shipping was a bit steep...

Another option to seal the shaft is to cut one from a spark plug boot. If cut in the right places, you'll end up with a "stepped" bore that matches both ID's.

I got my wiper setup completed with everything functioning as expected, but electric motor and gear box seemed to run loud, so I have had my help out guy reverse power to the motor.
Tricky for me but not for him, so it turns out.
It has required a diode and a relay to get it running and he even has it parking again.
I have not reinstalled and wired it in yet, but I will do soon and report back on how it turned out. ;)

Sorry guys, I was hoping to post a little more info that I have gained about reversing the wiper motor, but for now at least I am off the air due to health issues which could side line for a good few months.
Keep an eye out for me later, Russ. :pray:
