wiper help

Hello,
I have a 1959 Ford F100 with a wiper transmission issue. Everything is in good order except the nylon bushings on the arms of the transmission. There is just some wobble where they fit on the motor clevis, which should be expected after 50 yrs. Any ideas, help on changing them out before I'm forced to make an upgrade on wiper? I don't see any way of getting them out without busting them all up?
Thanks,
Al

Welcome to FTE. A pic of exactly what you are talking about might get you more responses. The wipers will all come apart with a little patience.

Al; Welcome to the orphanage! Your timing on this question is good, as I was cleaning my wiper assembly up today in preparation for reinstallation. I was looking at the pivot points and decided they were in good condition. However the cam on my drive output shaft is worn to the point that I may not be able to adjust the park feature(looks like the adjustment was maxed). Maybe one our buddies here will have the source of parts for both our wiper problems
Now to answer your question, I think if you would go to a hobby store you could purchase some small bushing/tubing and sleeve your nylon pivots.
Just a thought!
I would be interested in your remedy to this problem.

Thanks for both replies. I will work on pics. Not sure if I am able to post attachments. Also, Wally I had thought about some type of nylon sleeves and washers. Just because the orginal are a one piece bushing I don't think they have to go back in that way. Have to find the right inside and outside diameters on the same sleeve.

I don't see any way of getting them out without busting them all up?l
Pictures? I don't need to see any, because I know exacty what the problem is.

Ford did not supply the bushings, were only available with the wiper transmission arms. The way they are installed, it's impossible to remove them without breaking them.

This is not only the case with 1957/60's, but with most other FoMoCo vehicles as well.

There is no EZ fix, if there's a fix at all, because...where will you find a bushing that will work?

The only choice you have, is the same choice people had back then. Replace the arms.

Are the wipers vacuum or electric? The arms are not the same!

Al,

Bill has a point, I'm not sure its your only choice! But if you would rather spend money and avoid the challenge of rebuilding your bushings.
You could search the net for part #s
B7Q-17540-A and
B7Q-17545-A.
These are the part numbers for the right and left arms of the electric wiper assembly. At about 25.00 each, thats only about a dollar a year for 50 year service life

1957/60 F100/1100 Electric Wiper Transmission Arms

There are no prices listed on the Ford Dealer Parts Locator System any longer. Where Teddy came up with the $25.00 figure, I dunno.

Do not be surprised if the prices are higher, because obsolete parts prices can vary wildly from one source to another. If you don't like the first price you're quoted, try another source.

B7Q-17540-A .. Right Wiper Transmission Arm / Obsolete

KINSEL L/M in Beaumont TX has 1 = 800-816-2894.

GREEN SALES CO. in Cincinnati OH has 1 = 800-543-4959.

YADKIN VALLEY MOTOR CO. in North Wilksboro NC has 1 = 336-838-4155.

NORTZ & VIRKLER FORD in Lowville NY has 1 = 315-376-3899.

CARPENTER NOS OBSOLETE PARTS in Concord NC has 9 = 800-476-9653.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
B7Q-17545-A .. Left Wiper Transmission Arm / Obsolete

ANTIQUE AUTO SUPPLY in Arlington TX has 1 = 817-275-2381.

NORTZ & VIRKLER FORD has 1.

GREEN SALES CO. has 6.

CARPENTER NOS OBSOLETE PARTS has 9.

DON SANDERSON FORD in Glendale AZ has 18 = 623-842-8643.
