  1. Looking for a working early model 12v wiper motor and a pair of 2002 strut tubes. Price shipped to 20636
  2. That’s not a bad idea - trick is find someone or someplace to do that.
  3. Question about 6v and 12v wiper motors moving this thread from WTB to main discussion area hoping for additional thoughts - thanks in advance. recently I acquired a NOS wiper motor for an early car on eBay for my 68 1600-2 (sept 67 build date) - the eBay ad was not specific about what voltage the motor was for and I rolled the dice without doing much research. part of my “ready, fire, aim strategy”. I get excited for NOS parts. The wiper motor was installed and on my first real drive (5 hr drive) the rain was intermittent and biblical- think Noah would be herding animals biblical. The wipers worked, but there are two speeds (moderately fast and super duper crazy fast) and would not shut off unless I shut the car off and even then that only worked 2 out of three times. So I believe my problem is two fold - 1. the wipers won’t turn off once turned on 2. High speed is so fast it looks like they are about to create vertical lift - one theory was bad relay (hence the WTB ad) another is that the NOS wiper motor is for a 6v car and I’m running it in a 12v setup 😅 So I did some searching on the faq about 6v to 12v swaps and someone did mention that the 6v wiper motor would work but “much faster” - so seems like I have a few data points to suggest that indeed that wiper motor is for a 6v set up not a 12v . Not sure if that’s why it won’t shut off or if that is a separate (possibly related ) issue - welcome any thoughts or suggestions

  6. It’s been along time since I’ve posted a blog entry and lots of work has been done to the car lot of assembly including glass,trim, Exhaust, ST sway bars, etc I had to get a little help along the way from a couple different shops and a few 2002 experts in the area and this last weekend was the first drive. I’m extremely pleased with the results so far
  7. I’m looking for an early windshield wiper relay the round kind that typically sits against the firewall near the distributor. I think the one that I have it’s not operating correctly as my wipers will not shut off without it shutting off the car
  8. All Need an early model wiper motor in working condition. I have a 68 1600-2 it has SPADE terminals vs a multi pin plug. That's how to ID them. 12 volt if that maters Hi thanks Dionk
