  • Wiper motor swap - newer style on older style truck

    I swapped an '89 GW wiring harness into a '74 J20, including the entire steering column assembly. Everything is working but the wiper motor.

    The wiper motors are different and have a different mounting on the firewall.

    I've read a few vague references to installing the newer wiper motor on the older firewall, but nothing definitive.

    Any advice?
    Please come on over to http://fsjnetwork.com/forum and have a look.

    I put an '85 box onto my '75 J-20. I cut the mounting bracket off of the truck flush with the fire wall, held the motor where I wanted it, and mounted it directly to the firewall with self tapping screws. It has been performing flawlessly through the monsoons...

    I can get you pics if you want them.

      Interesting Jeff. I would have thought the linkage was a different design knowing AMC Jeep.

        thanks for the pic.

        Flint brings up a good point - is the linkage different at all?

          Did the same to my 69 and then added intermittent wipers to it.

            This is how the older style GM 2 speed wiper motors work

              I dont remember having to do anything with the linkage. It seems like it went right together. Using the '85 harness, made it plug and play.

              I'll try to get pics tonight after work...
