  • Electrical: Windshield Wiper for C/K

    Does anyone know if there was ever a cover made for a C/K windshield wiper motor to cover the exposed wires?
    Not only are the ugly, but exposed to any water that may enter the engine compartment.
    Thanks

    Yes, the '55's had covers on them.

            S.I. sells a cover, but I don't think it will fit an Autolite motor which is what you probably have.

              That is just what I am looking for Jerry.
              I actually used my 56 Power Hawk wiper motor in Sandi's 61 Hawk as it worked better.
              I don't know the make of the motor??
              Thanks for the picture, and info.

                The Old 6 Volt Motors were Redmond Motors, if Jerry's is still 6 Volt that is probably what it is.

                The Better 12 Volt Motors were the American Bosch, with the Chrome and Blue sticker on them, a lot of them exist because they were used on '60 Larks and fit C & K.

                  Yes, that's a six volt motor in the pic.
                  Do any of the twelve volt motors have the cover?

                    Not that I've found (12 volt motor).

                    Been looking (sorta) myself.

                    P.s. - I was told someone made a fiberglass cover years ago, I never went searching for it..

                      I do THINK I remember the American Bosch having a metal cover over the Parking Switch, but not sure.

                      If you want to know bad enough you will check your own stinkin Parts Catalog, I am wearing out the rug running into the Parts and Catalog Room from the Computer Room to do this for everyone with a question, but not wanting to look it up!

                      Not really tying to be rude, just a friendly SUGGESTION Jerry!

                        We have an old one for our Avanti's Prestolite wiper motor that we removed many, many years ago, and need to put it back on. It was a black aftermarket plastic cover, and did a great job of hiding the wiring and protecting them from the elements, but it was non stock, not correct for the vehicle, so on and so forth. But to that end, as far as a factory cover, I've yet to see one for the Prestolite motors, as all of the ones I've seen had their wiring exposed.

                          Why should I have to go to the expense of buying parts catalogs and go to all the trouble of looking up the parts and numbers I need info on, when I have you? <G>
                          Even with all your bitching, it's easier for me to let you do all the heavy lifting. another big G here.
                          Of course, you could do what I've suggested before, Rich, just skip over any post that has my name on it. No big g here.

                            Rich, given that you went to the trouble of recalling an underhood photo of Steincamp's kart hauler, methinks you may be exaggerating! Having the interest, time and recollection to answer questions or share solutions can be its own reward. I think you enjoy it as much as any of us.
                            I too would like more folks to buy their own catalogs and service manuals, join the SDC and benefit from the monthly Turning Wheels.
                            In the meantime, we are going to continue to assist and encourage any and all comers. That is our quest!
