    The park adjustment is usually on the front of the wiper motor itself. I believe there are 3 screws that you loosen & turn the center portion to achieve the proper park position. This is another case where the shop manual comes in very handy.

      I guess you didn't understand my question. It parks in the right place and then comes up about 3 inches. Shop Manuel has nothing to do with it. Excuse me for asking.

        Maybe it is coasting past the park position just a bit. Maybe you can adjust the park position to shut off the motor just a bit sooner.

          They tend to back up a wee bit after the park is set. The solution is like Roy says, is to park them sooner. Procedure is in the shop manual to adjust the park.

            I played with it this morning. It acts like something is in a bind. It stops and then comes back up. I will pick up another one in May at SB.

              If can't get it to park properly with the motor adjustment ,you can remove the linkage lever off the motor under the dash and position to the proper position. It should be a splined taper fit and can be moved around to any position you desire after the wipers stop.

                The problem I see with your suggestion, Leyrret, is then the wipers when in motion will hit below the bottom of the windshield on every sweep since his problem occurs after they are shut off & the wipers continue past the "park" position. G.M. wipers in the late 60's had a sweep that when shut down, parked down. Studebaker's wipers weren't that fancy & just parked within the normal sweep.

                  It works as I did mine with this procedure. If it stops 3 inches up remove the lever and move the wipers back down, It does not change the travel range of the wipers. It only changes the position of the wipers in relation to the park switch.

                    I justed look at a couple of motors and it seems that not are adjustable this way. The early Redmond motor seems to fit on one way. I believe the later pretolite or autolite can be repositioned . I know it worked on mine which I believe was a prestolite
