Wiper transmission - 60 Vette

I just installed a Newport Engineering wiper motor and it appears to be working fine...

However ....

The problem I have is the driver side wiper transmission on my Vette is from a 1950's Pontiac that my Dad came upon in salvage yard 20 years ago... This is comething i completely forgot about....

The spline on the Pontiac wiper is smaller than the regular Corvette one and will not hold my Corvette wiper arm in place... At the time I was using a Pontiac wiper arm which worked fine however the rubber started to wear and I tossed the arm out when I ordered new Corvette arms...

The Pontiac arm was painted silver and really contrasted oddly with the passenger side which had the proper Vette wiper arm...

Anyone know of a vendor that sells wiper transmissions for C1's or how I could securely attach the Vette wiper arm to the existing Pontiac wiper transmission?

I checked Vette-Gal but she appears to be selling only on e-Bay now and that's not a option I want to pursue...

It appears Newport does not sell the wiper transmission...

Thanks kindly...
