  • Vintage Wiper Pressure Tester

    Here's something you don't see very often. I'd bet most Model A's would fail the test. I know my 28 hand wiper is useless.

    That is kinda cool.

      Could you weigh a FISH with it?

    I like where it says to have the customer read the pressure.

      windshield wiper Vac Vs electric
      by aok
      I have read a number of posts on windshield wipers and realize everyone has a opinion but
      I am considering going to electric wipers, looking at the nu-rex .
      Anyone have the nu-rex or basically any other electric and are unhappy enough to go back to Vacuum wipers.

      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.

      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...

      Vacuum Wiper Success???
      by Oldgearz
      I'm posting this so others with vacuum wiper problems might find answers to their problem if similar to mine. First off, I had sent my vacuum wiper motor out for repair and when I got it back I was assured it operated properly. Without the blade on, the wiper motor functioned fine, with the stem swiftly going back and forth. But with my new arm and blade, it would stop in a straight down position....

      Need Photos of Vacuum Wiper Routing
      by Superhart
      I am a new Model A street rod owner converting my 1930 Model A coupe that arrived with a hand operated windshield wiper to a vacuum operated system using an original Trico KCX-1 unit. I would like to see photos if possible of how the vacuum tubing is routed from the wiper unit along the windshield and down the side post to under the dash. I just want to know what I am doing before I break out the...

      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...

      Electric wiper motor
      by Richard Knight
      Hi, Can someone point me in the right direction for info on electric wiper motors. My 29 Briggs wiper motor looks like new on the inside and runs fine off the car. But when installed the wiper arm binds up on the housing. This is due to the diecast pot metal arm being severely warped. Does anyone have a good useable arm or am I faced with making an arm. Thanks for any help. Rick.

      Vacuum wiper piping
      by cairo16
      Hello, I recently purchased all of the piping for my vacuum wiper motor....i have no idea how it goes together. My intake came with the plug in and and all the piping removed. Does anyone have a drawing of how to bend / assemble it? Or would anyone be willing to take and send pictures ? I have a 1930 deluxe coupe. Im pretty sure i understand how to get from the intake through the firewall but once...
