Looking for a under dash compact wiper motor

My car is right hand drive and the rocker cover on my sbc fouls the wiper motor which is also on the right hand side. I have no option now than to run the wiper system under the dash. I found a compact simple looking rear mount wiper motor called a 'monster guts' of all names, but it appears their factory has had flood damage or something and there is none available for the rest of this year. Anybody know of another motor I could use? Other option is the cable type systems, how good are they and are they hard to set up?

I've used the cable type a bunch of times, Specialty power windows is the manufacturer.
They are fairly easy to set up, can be mounted where ever you want, (within the reach of the cable, and routing so you don't bend the cable housing under a 3" radius)
The kits have 2 speeds with an optional intermittant setting. They can be set up with different sweeps and park positions as well.

They are somewhat noisy, especially if the cable is long.

Later, mikey

compact wiper motor

I ended up looking at a few jap cars and could have used any of them pretty much, they are all pretty small. Think I will use one off a nissan skyline, very compact and easy to mount.

Thanks for that, but that looks to be like a back and forward motor, would that be right? I just need a normal round and round type.
