Wiper Motor Ground

Im pretty sure my problem is a bad ground. My wipers stay on constant after turning them on then blow the fuse shortly there after. Also, when I removed the transmission arm, then reinstalled it, there was a small spark between the two. After using the search button, I know there is some kind of brass strap under/attached to the bottom bolt. Does anyone have a picture of this or can better describe it ? Or can I just ground the motor housing to the firewall ? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

There is a fine line between a good time and jail time.

Re: Wiper Motor Ground

After more and more reading on here it was the ground. I ran a wire from the firewall to valve cover ground strap to the motor base. Everything works fine now. Thanks to those who have posted about this issue in the past.

Re: Wiper Motor Ground

A new wiper motor mounting kit will include the groud strap, or you can buy the strap on it's own from www.amkproducts.com as part # B-10973 $3.
They sell the 3 grommets for $8 as well. #B-10233

Nov 68 Van Nuys. 327 floor-shift-auto, Frost Green and not much else when new.
