First, you need to watch the movie "Flash of Genius", very interesting story. I'm not positive but I think its all in the switch, others will correct me if I'm wrong.

Yup. Got one on my sedan delivery. It's the dial knob and face shown in the lower left hand corner of my center console. Also includes a "mist" or "one rotation of the wiper" button - in yellow. Pretty cool little gizmo for the price.

Both the switch and the wiper motor are different. Also, I've got a couple of the Whitney boxes and the factory stuff works a lot better.

I used an Equus delay unit from a local parts joint on my '79 Suburban. Only problem was the wires were kinda short so I have to reach farther down on the dash than I like.

http://www.techlib.com/files/wiperkik.pdf is a circuit diagram if you want to build your own.

http://www.rowand.net/Shop/Tech/DelayWipers.htm is an entire dissertation on wiper delay strategies.
