well I finally gave up on the wiper motor problem and moved on to teh battery drain on the 72. Had a friend who races stock cars come by to help. Showed me some neat trouble shooting tips. Found out that my new, but out of warrenty because I've been rebuilding this car for 2 years, proform alternator is shorted out internally. Not even he could figure out this damn windshield wiper problem. I've replaced the motor three times, harnaess in the engine compartment, I guess the switch would be next, but screw it, I know when I',m beat. Why wouldn't the damn fuse blow before it cooks the inside of these damn things?

The alternators are easy to rebuild. I found rebuild kits locally at Advance Auto Parts of all places. I've also seen 'em for sale at farm supply centers. Apparently some of the large diesel powered farm equipment uses GM alternators.
