Im not saying that's the answer just that it looks like a hydraulic type system! the fords got the hydraulic pressure from the power steering and when working on the motors they got so hot they would burn your hands but the control on the wiper speeds were unlimited from a crawl to jet speed and they could break your fingers they were so powerful LOL

You got it, BB. Nice job.


1961-67(?) Lincoln Continentals had hydraulic wipers that both parked to the left.

I don't know why. Maybe to give them a European flavor, maybe just an oversight....who knows....someone knows.

The floor is yours, again, BB.

I hear those hydraulic wipers were so powerful that they could break the wiper arms right off if the blades froze to the windshield.

Oops, Sorry, Jester. Not sure how I missed it (I even quoted it in a previous post - and still missed it ), but since you said Lincoln before BB did, I would say you won.

As your punishment for getting it right (haha), Jester, you get to ask the next question.

Sorry 'bout that....

Yes they did in the winter if heavily froze down they would brake the wipers blades off and twist and snap the arms! One time I was working on a unit and had it running leaning over (with cowl vent removed) to get to the actuator and my sleeve cuff got into the workings and it pulled me right down and back and forth LOL I was trying to rip my sleeve off and the more I pulled the worse it jerked me aroundThe other mechanics were forming a circle around me laughing watching me struggle Finally a black porter shut off the wipers and I parked along with the wipers!!! LOL To bad there were no cell phones back then it would be cool on u tube today!!!

Back in a bit Chris

The winner's name was Raymond E. Humbertson, and the prize was the buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere. He won by guessing the 2007 population of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

LOL, oh my God, they don't get much worse than this, talk about DESTROYING that car! It would have been better off parking in the middle of a field for 50 years!
