Chevele owners question

I tried this on the exterior section but couldnt get an answer so I thought I would try here.


I just finally got the wipers for my 71 Chevelle and dont know where the flat rod on the drivers side attaches to. Is there some sort of a clip that it goes to? I must not be seeing into it.

I looked on the Chevelle forum and found the question asked and a second pin talked about but no pictures that describe it or where to get it. I am going to try to put 2 pictures here. I have never done it before so it might not work. You can see the second arm I am talking about.

Any of this help, I couldn't bring up the picture



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I took the w/s wiper linkage off my car over the weekend. The drivers side wiper arm has, in addition to the main arm that holds the blade assembly, a smaller arm (possibly part of the hidden wiper stuff??). This connects to a very small stud which is alongside the main splined shaft, protruding up from the cowl. This stud appears to have a portion of it missing, as the attaching clip on the smaller part of the wiper arm has nothing to clip on to. Anyone know of any slick fixes for this situation? TIA.

Bill,
I knew what you were talking about, but I went out to the shop to see what was involved with fixing a broken one. It looks to me that you would need to replace the whole assembly.......OR......a good machine shop could probably remove the old pin and widdle out a new one and press it in. It appears to me that the small pin is just a press-in part.
Please verify that we are talking about the same thing by viewing the picture.

Nate,

WOW, thanks for the awesome photo!! Yes, that's exactly what I'm talking about. Now that I can see what one is supposed to look like, I know what's wrong with mine. The grooved portion and above are completely gone on mine, and the small diameter portion of the pin is only about half the diameter of the one in your photo. I would guess that you're correct in saying that the whole pin probably just presses into the main body.

I just looked in the Year One catalog, and they sell a new GM wiper transmission assembly (replaces the entire assembly for the drivers side) for $47. Guess that would probably be the easy way out. Thanks again, and I hope you got the email I sent you about a photo of your Butternut yellow 69.

My smaller dia. part was broken off flush, so I drilled it and tapped it and now attach the small wiper secondary arm with a small screw.
it has been working for years this way.

I found those post on the Chevelle forum but the picture doesn't work. I need to see what it looks like. I guess I will be checking out the Chevelles at the next cruise in to see one.

I did find a source for the pin but still dont know how it attaches. It might go where one of the bolts goes. Heres a link to the part.
