Wiper Motor

Looking at wiper motors. What wiper motors (from what type of vehicles) have you all used in the 53-55 F-100?

I used one from a 88 BroncoII in my 53, mounted it to the original wiper mechanism.

No pixs, it worked so well my buddy got one for his 53 Dodge rod. Very easy to mount. I Googled it B4 I got one @ the junk yard. Lots of pixs.

rhopper is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
In my F1, I used an eary 90's cherokee motor. I had already installed a steering column from a cherokee, GM column, so I got the motor to make the wiring easier.

Here's a write up by my father on the motor/switch we used in my '55. The images appear to be broken now, but you can find them in his gallery (t900enforcer)

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/62...per-motor.html

It's worked out great since installing it 5ish years ago.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I was working under the dash and was about to remove what I thought was a vacuum wiper motor only to grab a wiring harness. I put some power to it and the darn thing worked great. So I'm going to keep the 2 speed motor and just buy a new switch. Thanks again.
