I recently replaced my wiper motor in my '54 Chieftain. the old was shot, and hasn't worked since I've had the car. I put a new 6v two speed moter in. After I put it in I noticed the cables that control the wiper arms were disconnected. I don't if it was like that before or if it happened during the install. They're supposed to wrap around a drum, under the dash in opposite directions. I can get one then it's to tight and can't get the other. I can't for the life of me figure it out. Any suggestions or comments would much appreciated!
Hello everyone, Your help is much needed! My father and I are in the process of taking apart a '63. We're at the point of removing the body from the frame, and our original owners manuals aren't providing too much assistance. My first inquiry is about where all the frame bolts are located. We have two in the front behind the first set of wheels, and the same in the back behind the second set of wheels. Surely there are more bolts securing the body to the frame? My second question would be in regards to the windshield wiper removal. We have the assembly loose inside the body in front of the windshield, but we haven't been able to figure out how to take the actual wiper off to allow the internal parts to become free. There is a clip that seems like it's holding the wiper onto the metal assembly rods, but pressing it and pulling/prying etc. has led to nothing. We don't want to damage anything, and again the book isn't providing any help.. Any knowledge out there? Looking forward to hearing replies, and thanks for your time! We hope to get this thing moving soon enough.
For those of you who may actually drive your Avanti II and are less concerned with keeping it original, I found the new-style frameless replacement windshield wiper blades that will fit. 'Trico NeoForm Beam Blades' come in the extremely rare 14" size. They look really unique, work great and are quiet (although I try to avoid rain)!! Just thought I'd share...
