Questions & Answers
Questions: Bought this kit last summer - just now getting to put it in (many delays) . Vehicle is a '51 473 PU. Question is: The bracket covers up the heater hose passthrus and the upper right hand (passenger side) mounting hole is over the boot for the original vacuum motor cable, bottom hole, same side, is dead in the center of the heater hose hole - what is the recommendation for this situation? Can't flip it around because the hood won't close then. Thanks Mike Browning

Questions: I have a 1953 Willys truck that has been converted to 12volt. I want to convert the wipers. What kit do I need to do the complete job including blades?
Question By: John Haight on Jan 25 2022 2:39 PM
This wiper motor will do it. Then you just hook up your old cables to it.

Questions: I have a 1963 willy CJ-5 that presently only has a single blade, hand operated driver side wiper. I want to update it with a modern two wiper system, even adding a washer function. Do you have kits that will still allow my windshield to fold forward on the hood, and complete the before mentioned?? Please help.
Question By: Dan on Jan 18 2018 5:54 PM
12V part number is probably the best bet for wiper motor. But nothing is made that would have a windshield washer function.
