Schumacher kit was used to rebuild the wiper pivots. The arms are natural steel coated with Boeshield. Once the red zinc nuts were installed note the bare threads but black paint on the stud end, it is the little things that matter. Most will touch up the threads but for OE purposes thats a big No No...I coat the threads with Boeshild...I love this wheel armor for protecting the plated finishes..
I have seen people use gold cad on the 3 speed wiper arms. Mine was originally silver plate. The original spacers were plated as well...
The original nut was sent out and the aftermarket nut is smaller in height and width. The wire loom was restored by TA. Last pic shows again another area where paint is removed when bolted and the tip has black paint. I have the plastic sleeve to cover the threads, somewhere, lol...
All metal parts soaked in evporust. Then elbow grease with steel wool and coated with Boeshield. The brake switch is NOS. The clutch pedal bearings and seals and rebuild kit are from Brewers. Also, the spring pin is from brewers as well. The hardware and bracket was sent for proper plating. The pads are nice originals with pn's...
What a PITA these are....Release arm and hardware was sent out for plating. NOS knob and switch. The unit was soaked in evaporust and more steel wool utilized and coated with boeshield. The cable was a lot A lot of man hours but turned out beautiful. Nice original pad with part numbers.
This unit does not have a date stamp. Typically they are on the large rivet or on the end in front of the 2 studs in the middle. The large rivet has a distinct look and they way it was pressed on. They guys restoring this and taking them apart use an incorrect large rivet and a incorrect release rod rivet!
###Anyone notice the RIVET on the release arm?###
The outfits that redo these units use a standard rivet and are not correct. The original type is no longer available. It has a smooth round head and pressed on, see pic above. I have a little trick to share here. Save your old one and attach the rod with a rivet. The grind the rivet head a little bit and grind the stud on the original one off....A little epoxy and wallah, original again!!!
