  • Body / Glass: GT Hawk Wiper Arm Adjustments

    Can they be removed upwards from the pivot shaft and adjusted to provide better parking? I've been told the Avanti's can't....

    Yes they can Lou. Remove arm by pulling up and push back on where you want them to park.

        Any suggestions for loosening the arm to lift?

          The trick is usually to pull straight up in order to keep it from binding. It is difficult when you have to fight the arm spring, but I find lifting from the butt end primarily while only slightly lifitng from the arm side seems to work.

              I don't understand what you're asking. All the Studebakers I have had, the wipers parked too high. If you reset the arms they may go too far either at the cowl or the A pillar. I don't know about your GT but some wipers had an adjustment on the motor for parking.
