Mine dont work either. the people I got my car from robbed the power for my HEI ignition from the plug at the wiper motor. I reconnected it but no good. Just thought i'd ask how is the motor grounded? I'll check mine for propper ground. thanks

I think one of the three mounting screws has a metal tab to go from the wiper body to the attachment screw. Otherwise the rubber grommets insulate the wiper so, no ground.
Almost all GM wipers are this way.

This is a simple fix. On the front of the motor on the flat part there are a few small holes. Using a self tapping screw and wire connecters run a wire from one of these holes to the cars body.

The '69 wiper circuit is grounded at the wiper switch through a stamped sheet metal ground strap that's shared with the light switch - the bottom leg of it attaches to the lower metal instrument panel reinforcement, same screw that has the black instrument cluster ground wire under it. Make sure the strap is there, sandwiched under the wiper switch, and it's properly attached at the bottom.
