I just got off the phone with Old Tank who is a wealth of information. I an a new first-time 1955 Buick Roadmaster owner. This is my second classic car and the first car that I have taken on as a restoration project. Engine runs great, heater blower works, power steering, lighting, power windows / power brakes are all fine.
Everything else I need help with. First the cam-o-matic wipers do not work. I am pulling it and sending it to www.wiperman.com. That was easy. However, I have the washer jar and pump but the pump is shot and I am not sure which re-build kit to purchase. I have looked for someone to rebuild for me but have had -0- success. Also, the Wiper switch does appears to have a problem. The top switch turns and does engage the motor, the center button seems to engage the washer but the bottom turn switch seems to have no contact with anything. Can someone tell me how the switch works and if mine isnt functional, can you also tell me where to buy the switch?
Next, I am also going to need to put in a new main wiring harness. The only one I can find online is a whopping $1,017.50. Does anyone else have a better resource? I would certainly appreciate it.
PS. Im a CPA, not a mechanic. Definitely willing to barter. Ha!
