  • Electrical: Changing Buttercup to 12 Volt system

    Previously I have always used voltage reducers on the wiper motor when I changed the system from 6 to 12 volts. I have never been 100% satisfied with the results.
    This time I am going to use a 12 volt unit.
    My question is, do I need to get the wiper switch to go along with the 12 volt motor or are the switch's the same?

    The switch doesn't care.

      Thanks Dick.

      I guess I should have a little more specific with my question. I know a switch doesn't care if it 6 or 12 volt.
      Since the 6 volt and 12 volt motors are of different mfg., are the switches configured differently so as to require a different switch.

        I have a 12v unit I can take a picture of, if you need a look at the connector.

          I ran 12V Hawk wiper motors on both my 54 Starliner hot rod and the Kart Hauler with the stock 53-54 switches. I can't recall how I wired them now, but I had both speeds and park.

            I used a 55 harness to change my 53 to 12V, Here's a shot when I was testing the 55 wiper switch and 12V wiper motor. All good.

                No need for that Jim.
                I'm good to go.
