Rebuilt my 2 speed wiper motor

I rebuilt my 2 speed wiper motor today with new brushes and new grease.

Attached is a pdf with pics and steps.

Just realized we can't upload pdf's


Matt, I know you have a web page with info, I could send it to you and if you think it is worth posting you could make a link here.

Tom - you can post .pdf's on the corvairforum.com (with an account - easy) and then post a link here to the other forum.

BTW - I removed all the wiper linkage and found it was dried out and binding. Cleaning and lubricating resulted in an improvement.

It should all the original grease was hardened up and the motor was running slow.

I do not have wipers on the car yet still in the process of putting it back together.

Nice article Tom.

Those wiper motors weren't designed to be serviced and take some work to get them apart.

Nice job.

What did you use for grease, and where did you source the brushes from. thanks Junk

Hopefully it will be faster, but if not, it may have a weak field coil due to windings sorted together.

To add to this subject, late model wiper housings have a yellow number sequence
stamped on the housing. Any ideas on how to duplicate these yellow number
stampings for the concours events?

If you photograph the stamping, you can have that photograph converted to a rubber stamp, and then use a "watered" down yellow paint to re-stamp the part. I know that the full sized Chevrolet stamp that was used on the air conditioning compressors was reproduced in this manner. Sorry, I can't make a recommendation of a rubber stamp company, since the last time that I had a rubber stamp made this way, was about 1968 or so.

66vairman- if they weren't designed to be serviced why would Kent Moore make service tools for them?

The original grease that was not hardened up looked very similar to silglide, since silglide can take some heat with out melting, I used that.

Brushes are available from clarks. One more thing about the brushes, on the back side of the originals there was an angle, which I duplicated on the new ones so that the spring met parallel to the brush.

Also, in the service manuals it explains how to take apart a 1 speed motor, so I would think the 2 speeds are meant to be serviced also.

I doubt a Chevrolet dealer ever repaired/rebuilt a wiper motor due to the labor involved. It was faster (and probably less expensive) to install a new unit.

Now we have to repair them.

I totally agree that the dealer would not rebuild! Just like they would not rebuild the starter, but that is also in early shop manual.

I know how to rebuild starters, but I take them to a local shop, and they clean, rebuild and / or replace everything that is needed, and charge me a flat $60, and it is even painted. I am not even going to dirty my hands when I can have the job done professionally, for not much more that it costs me to buy the brushes, bushings, solenoid, drive, etc.

And that includes a new drive gear? they must be charging you about $5 an hour for labor!

Emphasis on proper. It is not the standard GM drive.
