You really need to braze it up for a good quality repair.

Fellow Truckies,
I have a '50 F-1 and the vacuum wiper is giving me a fit. Is there an easy swap
that can be done from another year to convert to electric wiper or wipers. I
have looked at the conversion kits in the catalogs, but they seem a little
pricey. I currently have 1 wiper, but would not mind having 2.

Thanks
Randy
Selby

I used the motor, pivots, linkages, and arms from a 1966 Ford pickup simply
because I had free access to it.  I took the center air vent in front of the
windshield out and disassembled the screen and mechanism below it.  I cut a
piece of heavy sheet metal to cover the whole and mounted the windshield
wiper motor to it using the original mounts from the 66.  I remounted the
cover for the vent so it looks stock, although it won't open.  I drilled out
the holes for the wiper pivots that go up thorugh the cowl (the 66s are
bigger) and I shortened the linkages that go from the motor to the pivots by
trial and error.  I simply overlapped the linkages and used pop rivets in
them.  The wiper arms that hold the wiper blades were too long so I
shortened them and used a pop rivet to secure them at the shorter length.
Cost was my labor.  Works great.
