Wiper system/wire questions.
I have been reading about the wiper motor problems that some are having and had a few questions on my 69. Need to make sure wires are hooked up correctly.
1) I replaced the engine compartment harnesses a few years ago from
Ricks First Gen. and didn't notice until today, after reading about the
wiper motor problems some are having, that the wire colors themselves
are different than what most indicate? For instance, the main wire that
is talked about mostly is the yellow wire. After looking at mine, I noticed that mine is black with a yellow tracer. Is this commen? Were
there different manufacturers that provided harnesses in 69?
Assy. manual shows yellow, not black with yellow stipe.
My wires are connected in this order coming out of the harness:
back 2 wire connector has black with yellow tracer line in top position
with split off wire going to top position in the 2 wire connector at the
washer pump. There is a light blue wire coming from the harness to
the bottom position in the back 2 wire connector and there is a black
single wire connector just below the 2 wire connector. There is a dark
blue wire coming from the harness going to the bottom position at the
washer pump. I know this might sound trivial to some, but inquiring
minds want to know. I have a pic to post but don't have that feature.
2) If hooked up correctly why is my washer pump wanting to run all the
time? Nothing but clunk, clunk, clunk. Won't stop. Not that I use car
in the rain (vinyl top), but you know things do happen. Is there
something I can check or do for that washer pump?
