  • '55 President windshield wipers adjustment

    Unable to find the secret to getting the electric wipers to stop in the down position; they want to stop at the outer extremities. Have loosened the three set screws on the outside and adjusted the indicated lever from full stop each way to everything inbetween and they either stop in the vertical position or they try to go down into the engine compartment. All I did was pull the original non-working unit off and place a working unit on. And when I turn the switch off they always do their own thing rather than stopping immediately.

    I'm going to guess that you bolted the wiper transmission to the new motor in the wrong position. I would unbolt it and pull it off, then rotate it 180 degrees and put it back on and try again.

    good luck
