  • 1930 coupe electric wipersy

    Recently purchased my first A and it has some issues one is the wipers do not work. These may be aftermarket. Any wiring diagrams for electric wipers out there?

    My 29 Tudor's original electric wiper has a thin brass strap that folds around the rubber mounting pads, to supply the ground. This brass is sometimes cracked or missing, and then the ground is lost. Other than that, all you need to do is add a power wire from any convenient power source.

      Thanks,that ground strap is missing. Now to add a ground and hopefully it will work.

        Here's a picture I just pulled off the internet, which was posted by Tom Endy, I think.

          You can take one of the brass spark plug wire connectors and fashion the ground strap as pictured in Tom's post above.

            Thanks for the picture Tom. Good idea on the spark plug wires Dave. I'm going to try that

              Electric Wipers
              by CarlG
              I am in the process of putting electric wipers in my pickup. The only thing that I have had a problem with is in running the wires.

              Any suggestions as to the best way to do that?

              Original electric wiper repair
              by rheacox
              Looking for someone that does repair work on original Model A electric wipers. Mine works well for the most part but there is some notchyness in the transmission. Most of the time it only swings the blade about halfway through its range of motion. Not entirely sure what model mine is, I think it's a Heinze HA-C2.

              On the other hand, if someone has good instructions on getting the gearbox...

              Update on :Where oh where 6v negative power
              by Mickey
              I'm connecting up my 12v - gnd temp. guage and want to know if there is a 6v neg. power source that is controlld by the ignition switch. That way I don't have to worry about a power drain if I forget to turn off the electrical cutoff. I'm using an inverter that takes 6v neg. power and ups it to 12v for neg gnd. equipment. I hope I got this all correct. I consider myself to be electrically challen...

              Original Electric Wiper Needs Repair
              by Tom Wesenberg
              Wimps need not apply. LOL
              Actually there might be some usable parts on this. I bought a powerhouse generator once that looked almost as bad, and I was able to save everything except the broken brush holder, brushes, and rear cover.

              Windshield Wipers
              by dmdeaton
              The roadster has a thin piece of wire holding the wiper arm up. Vacuum motor, good looking housing, I assume original. I guess this might be something I piddle with soon. Do the wipers work ok when all is well, or just rainx the glass and go on? What is everyone doing?

              Electric wiper mounting screws
              by Farmputzer
              I have a mid-30 Murray Town Sedan. I cannot find the specifications for the Hinze electric wiper motor mounting screws and the grounding screw to windshield. Where can I look to identify these screws?

              6V to 12V converter for accessories only
              by gdaquilina
              I want to add a 12V power source that will be used only to power my Garmin and charger port for an iPhone. I would come right off of the 6V battery with a fused line to a 6V/12V converter, then to a multi port 12V accessory with a USB and "cigar lighter" port. Would this be a proper converter to use?

              CB radio install
              by BillEbob
              My '31 Vicky is still a 6 volt, positive ground car. It does have a GM (Pontiac) 6 volt alternator.

              I am installing a 6 v to 12 v power inverter with 10 amps output.

              Wiring: it has 4 wires (input and output,) IN: red (+) & black (-),
              OUT: yellow (+) & black (-).

              I feel I should IN + to vehicle ground and - to battery +

              Is this correct?...

              Dedicated Electrical Grounds

              Original Thread

              Good morning. I was reading other threads about electrical problems and did not want to sidetrack their discussion so I started a new one. When installing dedicated grounds, what is the recommended method? How far do you go? For example, when grounding a headlight, do you run an extra wire from socket to bucket, to headlight bar, to frame, or to battery. With rubber mounting...

              Model A Electric Wiper on Ebay
              by rheacox
              Check out this wiper motor on ebay. Looks like it's for a Model A but more interesting is the farmer fix wiper arm....
              These numbers do NOT refer to quantity in any way. Unsure if it works.
