I goofed up, I think

Look, this thing is fiddly. I took multiple pictures before I removed the entire assembly just for this reason and btw, that wasn't easy either.

 

You either have to remove the wiper and reposition it on the stalk, or you're going to have to readjust the assembly on top of the wiper motor. The easiest thing to do os the first, which is why Mike suggested it.

 

FWIW I used a piece of blue tape on the windshield before I took the wiper off to mark where it was parking. Then it was trial and error thereafter.

 

Give it a try.

Is just the driver's side wiper kissing the windshield gasket, or is it and the passenger side wiper doing the same thing?

 

If the former, then jimk's suggestion is most likely the correct answer. 

 

However, if the latter is happening, then the problem is the connection between the wiper motor and the linkage.  To correct that, disconnect the wiper motor from the linkage, then turn the wiper motor on,  let it make a few strokes, and then turn it off.  Now you know where the "wipers parked" location is, so position the wiper arms where you want 'em, and reattach the linkage to the motor.  Now try turning on the wipers--wet the windshield so they'll move properly--and doublecheck that they're parking properly.  If not, disconnect the linkage again and reposition.

I did it.  First I disconnected the linkage from the motor and reposition the linkage and tried it again until I got it the way I wanted parked.  like i said I goofed up somewhere.  Thanks Jim and Mike you both where right.  And thanks all of you for your input.

All I would need to know now is where the ground wire goes then I'm all set, I cant remember.  (The wire is attached on the motor somewhere)

The ground wire on mine was connected to one of the mounting bolts for the throttle rod pivot on the back of the firewall.  The other end was grounded on one of the screws that holds the cover on the parking mechanism for the motor.
