Wiper Motor 68

I have a wiper motor with a part # 40-142. Is any one using this one? Do you have pictures of it in a 68 Camaro. I' need to see clearances for MC and valve covers.

Re: Wiper Motor 68

Can you send me a pic, 68 and 69 are the same. Tall valve covers should fit.

Re: Wiper Motor 68

The mounts vs my bolt locations are not close. It's like the motor has to go upside down and then you couldn't close the hood. Either I'm missing something here or I'm doing something wrong. What did you want the picture of, the car or the cowl?

Re: Wiper Motor 68

Does the motor stick out from the firewall, and rectangular, or lay against it and round motor. If the round motor it's not the right one. A pict would help?

Re: Wiper Motor 68

The previous owner couldn't find the wiper motor and ordered one for me. This is how I have a 40-142. I do not know if it is correct but the mounts do not seem to line up with my cowl. This is why I asked for a picture of that motor in a car so I could see if I'm doing something wrong or if this (40-142) is not the right motor. It is not the long rectangular one.

Re: Wiper Motor 68

If it dosen't look something like this, it's wrong, that is why I asked if
round or rectangular motor, I don't know what the number means.
I just took these picts.

Re: Wiper Motor 68

Thanks, I didn't want to go to the touble of having him return and replace this one if I was just doing something wrong. I'll get the rectangular one.
