    Check for vacuum leaks. Take the motor apart and clean all the gunk out of it, wipe a little atf inside it and put it back together, usually works
    Looking for a 50s car, Cadillac, Buick, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Chevy, cash waiting. Message me or call 07836 349356

    Dump the vac unit. Land Rover Series 3 wiper motor & linkage can easily be made to fit with a bit of modification. The arms, blades & sweep are near enough the same size. If you go that route PM me & I'll send photos & details.

    Cheers
