Wipers parking up
Posted by: hardcase ()

After a couple of years with no wipers on my 64, I figured out that the P.O. had them installed 90 degrees or so off. So I got them on right and discovered why they were on wrong. They park all the way up instead of at the bottom of the windshield. Everything works fine otherwise. How do I fix it?

Here’s a link to a picture to show what I’m talking about.

The lever on the wiper motor is 180 degrees off. You may need to re-clock the arms once the lever is installed correctly.

So I need to move the wiper linkage? Where is it? I took the cowl off to look, but there’s nothing there.

Thanks!

Under the dash, above the radio, on an early model.

Between the wipers and a pint of Trans-X, I’m so happy I could giggle! Thanks!
