gm to ford wipers

I know this has probably been gone over b/4 but here goes;
#1-63 galaxie wiper motor (single speed)
#2-97 chev van steering column (wiper sw on stalk)
#3-new E-Z wiring harness
The question is ,how do I control the ford wiper motor with the gm switch?
Any suggestions as to delay function? A wiring diagram of the gm controls would be a big help.
Thanks in advance for all the help.This is a great website.

GM wipers use a shunt design where the slow speed is achieved by energizing a second winding in the motor that is wound backwards from the first to slow it down. This winding is also used for the park function. I don't know how Ford wiper motors are wired. Also, for the 90s cars, the delay function is performed by a circuit board that is built into the wiper motor. No way to do that with the Ford motor.
