I don't know if this is coincedence or what?
Last weekend I did a points, condenser, plugs and wires change ( 68 327 210hp). I drove the car 2 times since then. Here's the weird thing.
Each time I started the car, the wipers came on for one or two cycles. They never did this before. I did re-harness the engine (includes wiper motor) and dash and put in a new wiper switch. But I have driven freqently since that with no wiper problems.

WHAT'S UP WITH THIS??

Ohhhh, I hate it when things like that happen. I'm no electrical wizard by any stretch of the imagination but, it sounds like when you turn the key to fire motor, the extra blast of juice is finding it's way to the wiper motor. I know there's some guy's who will not hesitate to correct me here if I'm wrong.
Maybe while you were fumbling around the dist. you moved some wires, and they have made some kinda contact with the wiper power? I do know there is 1 wire that goes to the starter that increases the voltage to start it. HELP GUY'S, you know what wire I'm talking about. It's yellow on my car. Anyway, just a thought. Did you rewire car with a factory harness, or aftermarket? That may be something to look at.

Gremlins.


thats gotta be it. the wire everyone is talking about is Green on my 67RS 327, but the 68's isnt that a white one? or white with black stripe? ,how about putting a resistor on it.

Just my opinion, but in order for that to happen something is wrong, maybe too much dielectic grease at a connector, or two wires shorting together, putting a resistor in just would patch the problem.

Hey,
I was reading a post this AM here about the excess dielectric grease. I think you may be on to something. I recall there being alot of it on my new connector, and I didn't wipe any off. Since it happens intermittently, I think I will check this first.

Thanks,
