Hi all. New guy here.
I've gotten my original vacuum motor working but it appears the knurled part of those pieces have worn smooth through the years. Does anyone know of a supplier for wiper parts.
Thank you in advance.

Requesting parts is not allowed in the garage Forums. Your post was edited to be correct for the page. Please place parts wanted requests in the Swap Meet Forum. Thanks

I have no idea of their quality but here are new ones.

The knurled part may (my guess) be removed, if the shaft is splined. Good luck getting it off. Here is a link to an adapter but may not be the correct dimensions. It's just an idea.

Mr Justhorsenround.
This was only my 2nd post and I don't want to step on toes and do the wrong thing going forward.

Sir. I was not requesting a part.
The editing removed what part I am actually looking for.

The part(s) source/supplier information I was looking for was for the pieces that stick out of the cowling on the outside that the windshield wiper arms go onto.
Only a place to get them. Not someone to sell them to me. I went back and looked and see that done quite a bit as sharing of information.

Mr Buoymaker. Thank you. I wanted the information to see if it was best to try to get a whole kit for the electrical conversion vs making the original system work correctly now that I have the original vacuum motor working.

Hey Lenny!

Hold off on an electrical conversion until you read some more. There is one forum poster that is having problems with his electrical wiper kit. Others are sharing negative comments. Others have good comments. Wait for the dust to settle.

It's bad enough to be working underneath a dash (at least for me). Not being satisfied with what you have just installed makes the situation more miserable.
