since I live in the big city where every one drives like morons,
I switched to disc brakes up front. Like every thing on this hot rod project-
had to adjust a few things to get the kit to work.
Next - new wiper motor.

oh no it wasn't

Wipers work, not sure if they're in it for
the long run.
I wouldn't advise anyone to do the same.
new wiper operation

I cleaned up some wiring behind the dash
turn signals no workie
shorted out ground, burnt out flasher, blown fuse
took a while. The local mcparts stores don't carry
three pronged flashers.

wiper rebuild, wore me out today.
But the transmissions won't leak- probably the only thing on this car that could survive a car wash!!
Didn't like the cable system when I put it in. Although it was better than
vacuum. I had two sharp bends before the first transmission. I could have
mounded it in the next county and made a smooth bend.
I'm back to stock arms and transmissions. Had the motor mounted level
and square with the firewall. Once I got a tab on the wiper arm could see that was wrong on two planes.
Re worked the mount on top of heater bracket. The motor arm runs parallel
to the transmission arm. Just need to mount a lever to reverse the motion.
Enough for today --drag racing to watch.

So the first big rain came in and reminded my about the wipers.
Got em out and on the table. Going to figure a way to hook the new motor/switch
to original trainy's and linkage.
