58 Limited wiper tranmission problems

Postby indianchief38 » Thu Feb 21, 2013 3:01 pm

is there anyone who has good knowleage on the wiper mechanism on the 58:s?
I have a limited with bad transmissions, spliced ​​slack cables, also one was stuck etc.
I got hold of the 2st NOS ones and tonight i should mounted them.

guess what? the new ones hade too long cables :shock:

I have cam-o-matic system.
I'm beginning to wonder if i haveing a wrong pulley.
previous owner mounted an electric motor on the outside so he might have messed with all the crap and replaced more stuff.

50,60,70 series is a little wider so they should perhaps have longer cables but which car has longer cables than limited?
maybe i just dont understand how they should be placed.

is there anyone who is good at this that has some idea i´ll be glad to hear from you

Sorry I haven't replied to your email. I am out of town, and can't seem to send anything from the hotel.

I don't have the Limited anymore, but my Roadmaster has the dash pad off right now. I can check it out when I get home, but it will be next week some time.
