wiper conversion help

hello hotrodders . nice to be in the " normal world " for a change ! building a 51 F1 on a 68 chevy p / up frame and running gear and am trying to keep it all original GM . tired of hearing both sides complain about the mix n & match n . no problems as of yet . Will need some info if available on using a GM wiper w/ delay for the GM column installed on the truck . year or type would be helpful if any one has converted one from vacuum style . wanted to use original transmission arms if possible . any help will be greatly appreciated . Will eventually modify to fit a factory replacement wiper motor

I have seen a few modified to work in older vehicles, some cutting and welding might be needed to get the right set up. Fit the motor as close as you can fit the arms, one or the other will have to be modified. Your skills and tools will determine much of this.
