FC dual speed wiper
Posted by: texasuk ()
Date: March 14, 2017 04:48PM

I've done the mandatory forum search and couldn't find the answer, can someone please tell me if you can just swap a single speed wiper motor with a dual speed on a FC, plus a dual speed switch and wiring, or is it not that simple?

Thanks in advance.

I believe it is that simple. But don't forget all the 2 speed wiper systems also came with the washer system.

Thanks, and I've fitted my own seperate washer system already, I'm hoping to just fit a dual speed motor to get the speed changes.

On my 64 that had a dual fitted i also fitted an electronic delay unit, which worked really well.

Are there two-speed wiper motors that will fit our FC's from different models?

Clarks only sell the one model (single or dual speed, 62-69), so I assume it is the same for all years.

My only concern is how it is wired, I'm going to have to look at the manual a bit closer.

The FC wiper motor arm is different from the car's.

Just remember, the Two-Speed wipers arent necessarily any faster than the single speed. In fact, many folks say the two speeds are "Slow and Slower".

YMMV

Use a good rain-repellent such as "Rain-X" before you head out and you won't even need wipers!
Even a relatively slow speeds the windshield is plenty clear for driving without any wipers on.

amazing stuff! Don't leave home without it....
