Assume it's probably too late but: Posted simular thread and with the help from Bill(ND), and CS65, replaced the wiper switch on the 65 if still in need yu might want to give one of the referrals a try.

Welcome to FTE

Dave is refering to a TWO speed wiper switch.

You cannot use a TWO speed wiper switch in place of a ONE (single) speed wiper switch.

Ford ID number marked on switch: C3TB-17A553-G1 = Ford part number: C3TZ17A553G .. Single Speed Wiper Switch-5 terminals (Motorcraft SW722) / Obsolete

Fits: 1963/66 F100/600 with single speed wiper motor.

Sorry...no Ford Dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any.
------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: There is a single speed 1963/66 ECONOLINE wiper switch with 5 terminals: C3UZ17A553C.

I found a few of these...but I do not know if it will work in a F100/600...or not.

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

What I suggest you do is...call Green Sales, ask them to bring this switch to the phone...then y'all can compare it with yours.

Tonkaman3, first let me take the opportunity to welcome u to FTE, the Ford Truck Enthusiast Forum. Sorry, it's a good example why it's important to check out sources, and referrals. Fortunately Bill came to the rescue, 'again'. Would assume if sales person was given P/N they would have known it's a single speed switch, depending upon supplier, that's not always the case. Bill, thanks for clarifying, the switch aint cheap. Again, welcome to FTE!

I just removed from my 1965 F250 single speed wiper, switch #C3TB-17A553-G1. I ordered the replacement you spoke of from Green Sales #C3UB-17A553-C1 and it is identical. Just installed and works perfectly. However it was expensive, ($75).

F250GH: Does your truck have windshield washers and did your old switch run them when you pulled on it? Does your new one, again assuming that you have windshield washers?

I have two C3TB-17A553-G1 switches. You can't pull on the original switch from my '65 M250 Standard Cab, no windshield washers. But I just grabbed another switch from a '66 M100 Custom Cab and you can pull on the switch?

It has a extra white wire that I'm hoping will run a winshield washer pump?

What is the ID number marked on this switch? It should be #3.

#1) Marked C3TB-17A553-G or G1 = C3TZ17A553G (Motorcraft SW722) / Single Speed / 5 terminals / 1963/66 F100/600.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#2) Marked C3TB-17A553-A or C3TB17A553E = C3TZ17A553E (Motorcraft SW721) / 2 Speed / 4 terminals / 1963/65 F100/350 / 1966 F100/350 before serial number 760,001.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#3) Marked C6TB-17A553-B = C6TZ17A553B (Motorcraft SW736) / Use with w/s washers / 2 speed / 7 terminals / 1966 F100/350 from serial number 760,001.

This switch also contains the washer switch, activated when the **** is pulled out.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The other switches do not have this feature. If factory installed electric w/s washers are present, there is a separate washer switch on the dash above the ignition switch.

This same switch (2C11500) was also used (believe it...or not) as a starter button on 1948/52 trucks.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ford also offered two types of dealer installed w/s washers.

One type had an electrically operated foot pedal. Depressing the pedal activated the w/s washers.

The other type had a manually operated foot pedal that had to be pumped to activate the w/s washers.

I do not have a washer unit. Nor do the switches pull for that option. Bill has named the correct switch for that application.

F250GH: Thanks, I was hoping that that my '66 single speed switch could run the wipers, oh well. I tried to find a closed circuit on any two wires when I pulled the switch out, but no luck. Maybe we broke it trying to get the **** off or maybe some switches pull out, yet do nothing?

Bill: Thanks for posting all that switch info, again. I had read bits and pieces in previous posts from you and other members. I have two C3TB-17A553-G1 switches, one pulls out, one does not? I guess I'll just keep the '66 switch for a spare, luckily I got it real cheap!

This is the only wiper switch that also contains the washer switch. This feature was not available until October 1965 (from serial number 760,001) and then only for 1966's.

Previous factory installed w/s washers have a separate switch on the dash.

FTE member F250GH's truck is a 1965, so it does not have this switch. And, since it's a Good Humor Ice Cream truck, it does not have windshield washers. Doesn't have a cab, either.

Click on F250GH's user name, then "See public profile" look to the right on this page at his album...there it is.

So would this switch work if put in a '63 f-100? Could it be used to add in a w/s washer, or would I need to use a different motor? I currently have a 2 spd motor from what I can tell, but the switch is cooked.

You cannot use a 7 terminal switch (C6TZ17A553B) in place of the 4 terminal switch (C3TZ17A553E) your truck has now.

Sorry Bill, re-reading the thread I see that you had mentioned it prior, and I guess I wasn't paying attention to that part. Thanks though!
