  • Wiper motor

    The original wiper motor has been replaced. The switch is dash mounted. The switch has three ports. Wiper motor, manifold, and one plugged off. Where can I get a replacement switch?

    Well all i could come up with is this 69 LTD headlight switch. It has 3 vacuum ports on the end that would operate the headlight doors. I see these for sale for about 20.00, but you would also need the knob that operates this switch. The vacuum portion of it is separate from the electrical
    This will work but it maybe a little bulky if you don't have the room behind the mounting panel.

      Wiper Motor
      by Jamey E
      Can someone fill me in on what we have? For our wiper assembly there is a thumb lever to work the wiper back & forth, but there is also a thumb switch. I found a toggle switch hidden under the dash that sends power to the thumb switch, but there must be something wrong with the wiper motor. Is this something that is rebuildable or does it just need replaced?? Thanks...

      Wiper Motor On/Off Switch
      by Rumbleseater
      Still one missing an element to the restored OD-C2 wiper motor on our '29 Coupe. The existing on/off switch is a minor piece of it's original self. I tried a few styles of after market switches, but they are configured wrong. I posted a photo from the internet, of one on the motor (circled), and what remains of mine. Anyone have an extra switch they are willing to sell, it would be greatly appreciated!...

      Electric Wiper Motor Control Switch Parts
      by conaway2
      I have located an OD motor in working condition, but it has none of the control switch pieces. Where can I find these parts ? I do have the wiper arm.

      Many thanks - Jim

      1940 Deluxe Convertible
      by NickBernier
      Hi all. I'm new to the group and just brought home my 1940 Deluxe Convertible. I have the service manuals ordered, but have a couple questions in the mean time.

      The ignition key switch is very stiff. I'm afraid that frail little key is going to snap. How do I lubricate it, or get the tumbler section out?

      I'm embarrassed to say I can't find the wiper switch.

      Electric wiper motor
      by Eric
      Mostly idle curiosity, but after reading Dennis from Mission Viejo's post about traveling across country in his Tudor, he mentioned that it was threatening rain where he/they were at. That got me to wondering about what might be a good electric wiper motor to replace the vacuum unit. Any thoughts??? I was wondering if there was anything out there that might somewhat resemble the original vacuum ...

      Electric Wiper Motor Control Question
      by conaway2
      Most of the electric motors in the RG&JS have 2 controls - an on/off switch and a lever that mounts on the end of the wiper blade shaft inside the car. My understanding is that this is a ‘manual override ?’.

      Since the wiper blade shaft is connected to a gear train inside the motor housing, how does a manual override work ? I see no way that the wiper blade could be manually...

      Wiper Motor Installation
      by Rumbleseater
      Unfortunately our '29 Coupe came without a windshield wiper motor. I did manage to purchase a collection of various Model A parts, and included was this wiper motor. From what little info I can find, this is a correct motor for the car. The car does presently have a wire ran up to the wiper location above the windshield. The inside of the motor (under the cover) is all intact, and spins freely. Wondering...

      Vacuum wiper motor
      by Tudor31
      The wiper motor has come off the car for service and updating. The paint was in bad shape so I decided to clean it up and start fresh. The motor is a replacement Trico vacuum motor for closed cars. Is the paint supposed to be high gloss or something else? I have managed to completely remove the old paint so I do have a great starting point for repainting.

      Ford Model A Vacuum Wiper Motor
      by telmore1964
      I am thinking I would like to have my truck as original as possible and thinking about going back to vacuum wipers. I can't tell for sure if this truck ever had the vacuum motor installed because the holes that are already there don't seem to line up with Trico wiper motor mounting holes. Also on the outside of the window frame there is no hole large enough for the vacuum hose and on the inside of...
