1968 Camaro small wiper motor modification

When I imported another 68 Camaro last year. It did not have wiper motor, due to being a BBC, tall valve covers with stud girdles.

The US dollar exchange rate and freight make it very expensive to buy slim wiper motor for the Camaro from the US. So I decided to make my own.

I have a found a wiper motor that works well with some modifications. It will even park correctly. It has Low and High speed utilizing the original wiper switch. I made a relay circuit to switch the control from negative to positive switching and supply the park circuit.

Is there any interest in myself producing some kits?

I had to do the same thing, i ended up using a Toyota wiper motor and re-wired it the same way. Much slimer and out of the way than factory or any of the more $$$ aftermarket ones.

Well aside from basic multimeter trouble shooting - wiring is beyond my skill.

I may have been interested in what you are offering had I known soone.
Already bought aftermarket unit.

I like to see where I am driving in the rain and prefer high speed wiping option.

I did agonize over the decision because I thought the cost was too high, but I caved in the end in the name of safety.

Bought this (before the GST changes on overseas shipping etc kicked in): https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Port-NE...4AAOxyVLNSsdLi

best value high speed replacement I could find at the time. Suspect a kit like yours would be better value again.

Could be a market for it at the right price I suppose.....can't see why not.

Cheers Shan, Deciding on a price is a hard one, as with working on classic cars most people don't care about there own labor. Wiring/electronics is quite simple when you have been doing it for 24 years. Youtube is now a good place to learn from. Hey, it is good that you know what mulitmeter is.
