Wiper Set Up 35 Ford Tduor Sedan Question

Looking for some advise regarding windshield wiper set up for my 35 ford tudor sedan. Intend on using a single blade set up and keeping the windshield hinge operational. There is little room under the dash for a cabled system due to a/c and a big block firewall.

Checked around and Julianos recommends the Mighty Wipers 12 volt (pic 1). MAc has a replacement motor that apparently can be directly mounted in the header.

Does anyone have experience with either of these set ups? Looking for ease of installation and what modificaitons are required.

Thanks.

i have used the "mighty wipers" brand before, with good success. it seems much quieter than the offshore-generic model you pictured in drawing#2. they are always very noisy and tend to stick out farther than the sheetmetal or headliner material inside the car. I just installed the 1st available newport engineering 37 ford windshield wiper setup, you may want to check w/them first, to see if they are going to offer a setup now for 35-6! The 37 style was super engineered, and has a QUIET 2 speed motor that self-parks! it came complete w/ metal template to drill the holes to align for 2 wipers, and all needed wiring and switch!, another option, if you need only 1 wiper, and want a nice quiet motor that parks, is to use a rear windshield from a vw van 1980-86? I have this setup in my 37, it works great !

I second checking out the Newport wipers..Good stuff.

Also, Specialty Power Windows makes a cable drive with an extra long cable that can be mounted in the trunk...

The mini ones are marginal at best.

Later, mikey

I have the Mighty Wiper and am not real thrilled with it.

I installed a Newport setup in my 40 Ford coupe. It worked out great. I got the optional intermittent feature on mine. SUPER ... I wish they made a set up for 32 Fords.



Vince ... what the deal with the Mighty Wiper ??
I was looking at one for my 3W

It works, it's just a little flimsy and cheap. I really don't plan on driving the car in the rain that much.
