I'll work on getting some pics up - or at least my wife will . Do you remember what length shaft you ordered? Can they be shortened if too long? Thanks for your help.

Is it possiable to hook up one of those bell cranks off the main shaft that goes to the wiper arm from inside the header?? Kind of hard to see from the pictures from different sites. I like the idea of gutting a old vacuum motor from the passengers side, and hook a rod from there back to the shaft that turns. They should both move in the same direction and be the right legnth.. I would then have to make a rod out of some flat stock to hook one bell crank to the other.. That wouldn't be to hard.. You would just need a sturdy little motor.. Al

I know they splined arms for fuel injection ( mechanical ) with large interior dimentions and its possible to use Morse cable to transfer the motion ( as its teflon lined and can bend easily ) to the two arms on the wipers thus allowing you to put the wipermotor and gearbox under the dash .

I saw a couple of arms on ebay to put on the two shafts, but it would be eaiser to just make them myself. Just need to add some teflon bushings for a flat rod to go from the main wiper motor to the other side. When the one arm moves right. The other should also.. Now I have heard that VW might work, and Jeep may also work. I will have to see what either measures out to..
