Can anyone recommend a good source to rebuild/repair a 1970 wiper motor? I have a good core.

Also, does this interchange with other years, models? I have the round silver cannister type of motor with the concealed wipers. Are there any part numbers I should look for and are they date coded?

Thanks

I'm not sure of a place that can rebuild them,, but I'm sure you can still get them through G.M, just over a 100 bucks.
hope this helps

I picked up a new one (round can - concealed wipers) with lifetime warranty from Parts America for around $20. The one I had to replace was not original anyway.

Wow, I didnt think GM would still have them.I got one quote from Walsh Wiper for $135 which I thought was a little steep. I am waiting for a quote from D and M. Mine is original (I think) so I'd like to keep it, but for the price I'll also try GM and Parts America, thanks.

You might try OPG. They show a picture of the "round canister type". Say's AC Delco replacement, for $155. Is it new or rebuilt???
Sorry gang,I don't have the GU book handy.

Another possibility is if you have an AC Delco Service Center in your area go to them.
Last year I got a rebuilt AC Delco unit for ~$50 ( don't remember exactly but I was very surprised and happy at the price) and it included the washer pump also. The only negative was it was panted all black. The other surprise, NO trade-in so I still have my original unit.

I also thought I saw a "rebuild kit" once upon a time in a catelog but can't find it so maybe I didn't.

Good luck,

I scraped the grime off my wiper motor and located a small part number that shows it is the original wiper motor. It worked fine when I took it off but while cleaning it up I broke the three prong electrical connector. I would like to buy a new connector and fix it myself and also retain the originality. Does anyone know where I can get parts or this motor?

Our local parts houses here carry both models. The round can and the flat housing for the 66. Kragen Auto Parts even still carries them. The price for the flat model is around $40.00 and the round is around $75.00
