Please excuse the obvious...on my '66 F250 the wipers only return when
you put the switch to "off". If you put it to "high" they stop dead in
their tracks...

The length is .980"-.995" , this is measured from the flat next to the
mounting bolts . Cut a piece of sheetmetal 2 15/16" long
about 2" high , cut a notch in the center 3/4" wide and .980"
- -.995 deep, this should fit between the mounting bolts for the m/c,
with the pushrod in the notch, adjust the nut on the end of the
pushrod in or out to set it to the depth of the notch. A diagram
may have helped but the fine motor skills of my mouse really
bites and after three tries I gave up.
(btw I assume it was the m/c pushrod adjustment you wanted)

I found a great source for information that I thought I would share with
the group. I couldn't help but notice that the local auto parts stores buy
their brake parts (and many other types of items) from a company called
"Cardone Industries, Inc". I am not associated with them in any way, I just
thought a few ford fans would like to check out their website at
follow the link to "Pro Tech" for all kinds of info.


69 F250 360 auto (all new power disc brake conversion)
69 F250 390 T18 Posi (new booster/mc, and pads/shoes)
