I've only installed a couple but the NewPort Engineering was great....and if you order correctly will miss the choke wire.
.....sadly its to late for Woof, he's already spent his money.

...not sure if JCarter still sells the Newport unit but I purchased mine from him cheaper than I could buy it directly from Newport....but that was a few years ago. (about 5)

If you get tired of only having 2 speeds (and if your truck is a daily driver and you're not worried about driving in the rain), you might want intermittent wipers someday. If so search and you'll find the circuit I posted a year or two ago making this all possible. You can even select the amount of delay when you're building the circuit.

Counterpart seems to be a huge wholesale company. Probably Chinese. No website when g o o g l e d. Classic parts does identify which are USA made and you can see the Newport logo on some.
Some 12V on Classic site are not labeled USA, so those would be the "off shore". As said, none of the 6V say USA made and Newport does not have a 6V unit. Newport mentions knob modification.

Some off shore stuff is good , some are not.

Counterpart is the wholesale side of Car & Truck shop out of orange, CA. They are importers of many truck parts and wholesale to a lot of retailers. Some of their stuff is good and some crap. WES

The above was copied and pasted from the site: www.67-72ChevyTrucks.com [67-72chevytrucks.com]
It was posted about 10 years ago and a discussion followed on that site...as you might expect.

There are lots of comments floating around about these two operations. I suppose you can make up your own mind.

Bottom line after all this is:
Woof359: Good job on making it work and thanks for the info.

My Newport installation went OK, some parts missing, promptly replaced, directions sort of vague.

Might be easier with a 6 volt truck to use a resistor and 12 v unit.

Would not trade my vacuum motor for a dozen electric. Sent my motor to Ficken about 40 years ago and then put an electric vacuum pump from a Mercedes diesel where the battery box used to be. Has UNLIMITED number of speeds and is unaffected by pull on engine so no stop going up hills. I guess with an electric vacuum pump it could be called a "hybrid".

didnt see any foot notes on cable clearance, no biggie, new cable works so much better, yes the chrome plastic knob has a set screw, only one wire to hook up the wiper, missed the posts on others wiper installs. got it in, no rain expected for the next decade here just HOT and sunny, well go look for the other wiper post, Many Thanks

Good deal. Maybe there was no note about the choke cable. But I don't really know who you bought it from. The note I am referring to is at the bottom of This page. [classicparts.com]
