    This is, in part, a note I received from a fellow SDC member a few months ago. It is another source for wiper stuff.

    Contact New Port Engineering , from Washington , MO. New Port has a reputation for being one of the top names in wiper motors for the street rod industry, and I wanted to see if they had something that will work for me. I was surprised to find they already did have the electric motor to replace the 39 and 40 Stude cars with the vacuum wiper motor, but did not know that some early Studes came with electric wiper motors.

    They asked me to send them my old 6 volt motor. After looking at it , they decided to custom make a wiper motor for me. I received the motor a few days ago , and it fits perfectly. They even include a new wiper switch with the HI & LOW speed settings.

    When I phoned them to tkank them for their perfect work , they told me that they would welcome any Studebaker requests, as they are wanting to branch out beyond the normal Chevy / Ford / Mopar wiper motors ! They can also replace worn out 12 volt units on cars or trucks now.

    If one wants to look at the computer , look for www.newportwipers.com , Their address is 2760 New Port Road, Washington , MO 63090
    The phone number is 636-239-1698 . Ask for Gavin , as he's the one assigned to specialize in Studebaker requests.

    I think it's great for our Studebakers to be able to take advantage of the modern wiper motors available from New Port Engineering.

    Thanks everyone. I want to stay with drum brakes and am still looking for good drums. Mine is a 52 2r5. And when I get smart, or my son is home from college, I will post a picture. Thanks Bob[8D]

    As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

    Were electric wipers an option for the R series trucks?

    Yes. However, most of the parts are different from the vacuum wipers.
