    I just did mine , I think I have an extra connector, female side. You would just need to re-pin it. I did away with my bulkhead to smooth my firewall so I ended up using a terminal block . Mine is a 3 SPD and I was able to use the existing switch.
    If you're interested PM me your address and I'll send it to you.

    Nothing of a close up or switch but here is the t block I used after eliminating the bulkhead connector.

    If it has the resistor on it that looks like a ballast resistor, it is a 2-speed wiper motor.
    Looking for stock design/fit switches or some aftermarket switch?

    Most likely a 3 speed / variable speed wiper motor.
    Easiest hookup is to use the original style switch.
    A generic 2-speed wiper motor switch can be made to work by signaling two SPDT relays (or 4 SPST relays), but also requires a power resistor and diode.
