installing dual wipers in a 34 ford

I have a 34 2dr sedan street rod and want to get rid of my single wiper motor and install one that will operate two wipers, is there a unit that will fit above the sun visors in the area where the single motor is now?? I've looked throught rod mags and can't seem to find one that will work, most are for cars with the wipers below the windshield
Thanks for any help you guys can give me.

You can either install one more of the single wipers and wire them together, or you can check out Specialty Power Windows, windshield wiper kit WWKXLWD-2 has an extra long cable drive that will allow you to mount the motor behind the door or under the dash, but still have the wiper shafts above the windshield.

You will need to do a little fabricating of a through tube for the shaft to go through, but it can be done.
It would be easier if the car is not painted yet, but installing them on a painted car wouldn't be impossible.

I like the SPW units because you can adjust the sweep and also park position and and sweep timing.

Later, mikey

Try New Port Engineering. They have a website. I just bought an electric wiper motor to replace the vacuum motor in my '38 Pontiac. It mounted to the original mounting brackets, and linkage with no problems what so ever and worked the first time I put juice to em. Took only 30 min. One of the few things to work right the first time on this project.

They have a set-up like you are describing and a video showing how to install it. I highly recommend them.

electric wipers

I used SPW kit to install electric windows in 40 Chevy 2 dr. sedan and was well pleased. I live in N. Ga. so it was just a drive down the road for me. I was on my way home from Fa. and decided to start. I was well pleased with they're shop (store). The owner took me on the .25 cent tour and showed me about 50 doors he had out back and explained that he didn't sell a kit until he'd made sure it would fix in what it was designed for. If his electric windows were an example of his other produces, I wouldn't hesitate to buy fro him.

I installed SPW kit in my 41Willys. I had some minor issues with it but their customer service is great. They want you happy. Problems solved quickly.

The wipers work perfect and are nearly noise less.

I used 3/8 aluminum gas line instead of the tubing they give you. Tthe gas line was a little heavier wall and bends better.
