Does anyone know what is the proper installation for a wiper switch on a 68 Camaro?

Just installed a new motor and pump, and the wiper arms will move when pushed and cleaning, but it does not respond to the turning of the knob - it clicks, but the arms don't move. Thinking the wiper switch could be the culprit, but it appears that to access it, you need to take out the complete dash? Any help or advice would be kindly appreciated. Thanks.

Remove the set screw from the knob, remove the retaining nut and bezel, pull switch out from the rear and unplug wiring connector.

worth noting that the switch won't work at all unless it is grounded, you can't test it with it just hanging in air, unless you use a jumper wire to ground the case.

The retaining nut is weird, they sell a special tool to get it off.

I don't think it is your switch, I just went through 3 motors (rebuilt) and all three had something wrong with them, the fourth now works!
Try a test on the car by unplugging the wires to the motor and jump the B+ to #1 terminal and grounding #2 & #3 to the wiper ground strap that should give you the "low speed" wiper. Next step is to remove the ground from terminal #3 and you should get "high speed" wiper. The last step would be to reconnect ground to terminal #3 and remove ground from #2 and the motor should go to "park" position.
Good Luck
