springs for wiper linkage

I'm getting ready to reinstall my wiper motor, linkages, and etc. So, I was looking at wiper parts in one of the parts dealer catalogs. I noticed springs with clips on both ends. The description said that they were used to connect the linkage arms to the wiper motor. I have stripped everything out of 2 AD cabs for my truck, and these springs were definately not under the dash of either one as part of the wiper system. So, I thought maybe the catalog was wrong. Then I looked in my other catalogs and found that these same springs & clips are listed in all of the other catalogs. My cabs were both 1953 cabs. The catalogs claim that these springs were used from 47 thru 54. So, what's up with this. I have to think that the springs are correct, and yet, my linkages were connected without them. Can anybody shed any light on this?

If your talking about the clips that hold the linkage arms on the the wiper motor, then yes there is a spring between the two clips that hold the tension keeping the clips in place. You can buy the item from most vendors. Here is a [LINK] [classicparts.com] from Classic Parts.

You will notice that the clips have a keyhole shape and the ends of the pins that the linkage rides on has grooves. Just put on the linkage and slip the clips over the pin and into the groove. Thats it!

This link is to a conversion wiper motor instead of the OEM motor but it shows the spring clip in place where the wiper arms connect to the motor.

I have no idea why the forum software sometimes doesn't treat a link as a link. You'll have to copy the link into a new tab.

It might have to do with the link being eBay which are not allowed in the forums.

Good point. I changed the link to just the image instead of the for sale listing and now it shows as a link. Dang Martin, I knew there was some reason I kept you around. grin
