    I need to have my 3 speed wiper motor restored to work and look like the original finish. I read a thread that Concours Creations in Orange City was the man to go to. I tried to contact him and found out thatbhe is no longer in business but teamed up with kim@passion4mopars.com. Reached out to Kim and he emailed me that they lost their shop space due to a leaking roof? Anyway left him a voice-mail still waiting for an answer.

    So does anyone have a reliable source to restore my 3 speed wiper motor, it would be greatky appreciated.

    Thank you in advance, Dean.

    PS- My wiper motor wires all go to the connection plug with the exception of one wire that goes into the firewall block on its own. Have not figured that out . Any comments are appreciated.

    Topher McGuiness(sp) the Headlight Motor Man might be doing them.
    I am a little surprised that you have a 3 speed and not a variable switch and motor.

      He is. He just finished 2 for me along with 2 heater blower motors and a headlight motor. Pics when I receive them. He is in NC.

      The variable speed setup is called a 3 speed motor that is what he has.
      Variable = Speed 1
      Low Speed = Speed 2
      High Speed = Speed 3

      I am not very knowledgeable about this, but my switch does not click at each speed. The wiper speed just increases as I turn the knob. I do have some that click and give actual speeds as you describe. To me it looks like my switch might have a rheostat, if that is the correct terminology. Appreciate any clarification/information. Thanks.

      According to the Dodge sales brochure it's called a "variable-speed".

        I agree. But somehow the motors are always referred to as 2 or 3 speed.
        Below is what i was thinking of probably didn't explain it very clearly.

          Thank you as well, now I have two sources to call. It looks like Bruce has been restoring wiper motors for a long time and I like his hours of operation 9am-9pm PST.
          I stand corrected in my terminology, according to my 67 Charger Illustrated Facts and Feature Manual, the "standard" wipers are "two-speed" and the "variable-speed wipers" are optional. So yes I have the variable speed wipers. Thank you for that detail.

          Thank you for the lead for Topher, that makes three choices I have to go to. The Forum always comes through. I am finding out that the 66-67 Chargers are unique in many ways from other year Mopars. My Mopar experience has been 69 Roadrunner for 25+ years but this is my first Charger and the Forum has helped me out considerably. Thank you.
