wiper motor query

* in my 71 my wipers dont work.

* i put a test light on all five electrical plugs and they all have power. one sparked like when a negative/positive touch... tell me if i am wrong but is that the earth and is that normal?

* my 3 vacum lines are a mess. one goes to the reservoir tank at the front . the return line from the tank to the wipers is there. another line goes through the firewall but is connected to nothing. the 3rd point there is no hose at all.should this go to a vacum point like carb or manifold? where should they all be connected?

* does it sound like the wiper motor is dead?

Re: wiper motor query

Wish I could hel, but I'm not at all familiar with second gen wipers.

If they are set up like a firstgen, the motor get power all the time on a yellow wire, and the switch ground the other wires to turn it on.
