71 Camaro wiper problem

i have a 71 camaro with aftermarket cowl,wipers do not work.understand there is 2 different style motors and i have the non hidden style motor so probably have to switch this out but wanted to know if wiper linkage was different.the current motor hooks up to the linkage but wipers don't work. if i diconnect the linkage the motor runs but has no power i can stop it from turning with a pair of pliers.

Re: 71 Camaro wiper problem

If I recall the difference in the motors is Depressed park. Not real sure how to explain it, but the standard wipers basically just stop at the bottom of the windshield. The depressed park stop at the bottom and the gear rotates further to retract the wipers under the cowl. I don't know if the linkage is different but I rather doubt it.

Yeah,the linkage,motor,and arms are different for standard and hideaway.
The motor is the barrel shaped one for hideaway(regular is square)
The linkage is also different(recognizable visually by three bolts bolting the wiper pegs on,for hideaway,as opposed to two,for standard.)
And the (one?)wiper arm has an additional added sub arm(for hideaway)to it.So,instead of a one piece wiper arm,its two piece.
And lastly,lol,for the early years(70-73),there is an addition mounting plate(hideaway)that goes in between the motor and firewall.
