OK, we wiper arms reassembled with all the mods done. 8-)
Sorry about the quality of the pic's.
So far so good. ;)

Well outside wiper arms are all in position and just waiting for me to reconnect the switch and install the motor back into position :D

I just finished constructing a homemade powered bead roller which is a quite a good unit to own if you are planning to do sheet metal repairs especially to floor pans or making gussets for extra support. :)

I'm not sure if there is any place to post this kind of work on here. :?: :?: :?:
If some body knows please direct me... :think:

OK, thanks for the lead.

I have now started my bead roller project on this link,

Well folks, I realise it has taken forever, but I have finally wired in my wipers with the motor running in reverse.
Very tricky for a non auto sparky like me and it took me a few attempts to just sit and look at what my buddy had given me to transfer wiring wise into my existing circuitry.

I eventually plucked up the courage and enthusiasm to give it a go.
I took pic's of his layout which was all wired up to demonstrate how it worked but it needed to be replicated into the vehicle.
I made a few diagrams and notes of my own and then headed into the wilderness.

I am pleased to say more than a few hours later I had wipers working again and some much quieter it is amazing.
The regular way the wiper motor was wired it made a noise like an older model car growling the diff gear when reversing.
Once reversed it was so much quieter.
My buddy is a pretty smart cookie when it comes to this figuring out stuff, but I could not expect for him to install it all as well, I'd rather keep his willingness to help for the tricky stuff.

He even has the arms parking in the correct position.
The main difference I noted was that he has included a diode and a relay into the system.

So I guess I am done with this thread now unless anybody has any questions.

Not so fast... Please post the electric diagram of the final setup, relay and diode included. It will give us a better understanding of your systems.

Thanks.

Oh, sorry I thought I had previously, but yes you are right I must have forgotten.
I will get back in 24 hours of less with a diagram.
Too much showing off the bead roller stuff, hahahaha.... :oops:

Well, as promised here is the circuit diagram used by me to reverse the rotation of my wiper motor and still have park etc.
I hope you folks out there will able to understand it and please don't ask questions because I will more than likely be unable to answer them. :pray:
Reversing as I understand it means that the motor runs at the opposite polarity hence -ve and +ve are swap over.

Just for those of you that maybe interested, I got my engine running video finally working with sound for what it is worth.
You are welcome to take a look.

Well folks just to spice the end of this thread up a little, here are a couple of pic's of my dash and wiper switch mounted in the control panel.

I will be now focusing my efforts on parts of the project so it can drive and stop etc.

I'm nearly done but it is slow and many tasks are fiddly.

Thanks for the kind words.
Progress has been slow, but it is still headed in the right direction.
I've had to add a leaf to my front transverse spring as well as have the main leaf shortened and the next leaf lengthened and the next leaf was the new additional leaf.
That Cadillac flathead engine is very heavy and just sitting my shop I have seen that front spring gradually sink down somewhat... :shock:

Here is the latest modification I've made to this project, not electrical, but since this thread already contained pic's of the project, I figured it was probably easier to follow.
I made a pulley cover for the power steering pump in thread link.

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5277&start=75

I have now mounted onto the pump and here in the pic's is the finished product.
It has been my first use of my bead roller that I fabricated some months ago and have been waiting to find a project for it to assist me with.

Sorry about some of the pic's, it seems they will only load if they are in the landscape orientation for some reason...
