Tried DPST 15 amp switch back in the '80s on Tiwan motors from Vintique Inc.
Looks like motors have improved.
Glad it worked.

|27Tall T||This is an old post (look at the date). I fixed the wipers by using a DPST switch and have no problems. This is a new inquiry by boxcar.|

You still have not answered questions about DMV requirements:
What State ?
What tags are you applying for ? Daily driver ? Street Rod ? Antique/classic?
Did DMV inspector show you regulation on paper ?
I have wired over 200 Street Rods since I started my business in 1957. Built many rods.
You have seen my cars in magazines & TV, winners circle.

Would a variable intermittent switch set near full speed synchronize the wipers.? wired in the ground side , turn off the wipers after a few wipes for a second, then let them both start back up at the same time.

You will never syncronize two separate wiper motors on the same car.

dual wiper motors
27........Done a many '32 stock & street rods. Yes, you do have the bulkhead opening on the right side...for export right hand steering.
Why does inspector require dual wipers if it did not come with dual wipers ? Titled as a '32 ? What State ?
|12-29-2011 11:59 AM|
I'm working on a '32 Ford Tudor and yes I realize that the arms will never synchronize. The switch(SPST) that I'm using is rated for 15 Amps. They're single speed and they both share the same ground. My only concern is to get the wipers moving so that I can safety the car to the satisfaction of the inspector. After that Rain-x will be my wiper mode.

dual wiper motors
Hate to pop your bubble but the arms will never syncronize in motion with 2 wiper motors.
What car are you working on ?
Check the load capacity of the switch always. One will work. Don't need double pole. Are they 2 speed ? A dedicated ground is required.

yes, like joe says
nice pics joe

Hey Tall T, If you can't find a suitable switch, you can use a relay in place of the DPST switch. You'll need an automotive 12vdc DPST relay or two SPST. Heres a DPDT from Radio Shack that would work, 10 bucks;
Food for thought. Nolan

|27Tall T||I can't thank you guys enough. The switch that I'm using is a universal SPST lighted one thats fits into a rectangular hole. Now the search is for a DPST that will fit into this hole (may have to widen the hole somewhat, which is okay).|
|12-15-2011 08:45 PM|
However, I agree with Ogre that it would be better to use a DPST switch.
The choice is yours.
Hope this helps....
