    Just wondering I see guys posting pictures of restored wiper motor and they are golden agonized color but mine is far as I I know factory and it's black. Which would be correct? This is from my 70 rr

    Someone painted it black, like my Superbirds. I just used a plastic brush handle and started rubbing to get it cleaned off... as mine was on the car. You could try some lacquer thinner..

      Of all colors, they ain’t black!

      They are To be gold anodized on the motor barrel and the center housing is aluminum.

        Just a correction here fellas. That is a yellow zinc chromate finish.

          Yes, yellow zinc chromate is the OE finish on the barrel. When I restored the 3speed from daughter's 69RT, replicated the chromate finish with spray cans. Silver base with a light anodized gold topcoat.
