Esoteric intermittent wiper q's

I want to try and wire an adjustable intermittant wiper. I have the relay off of a later car. The question I have is this. When you switch from the intermittant circuit to constant low, do you cut the power to the intermittant circuit?

I want to try and use a headlight switch with the instrument rheostat to control the interval. I have heard that there is a single resistor in the relay that controls the wiper interval. It seems that using a rheostat in the right range, you would be able to vary the interval. Does this sound right?

know that there's no need to cut the 12V to the intermittent terminal of the late-style relay whan you go to the continuous wiper speeds. I have the extra teminal connected to 12V via my dead rear window defroster's switch in my '73 - been using it like this for at least 6 years.

Zenon

It won't take much current without smokin. I tried just out of curiosity to run the wopers with it a slow speeds and it got smoky immediately.
