Default PWM winshield wiper motor installed.

I didnt have room for the stock windshield wiper motor setup due to the supply and return connections for the Ramjet Fuel rail... Soooooo...

$89 later a nice PWM wiper motor i got of ebay was installed mostly in the stock location the shaft was the same as what is on the vette already I ditched the right wiper since it is a fair weather car that gets caught in the rain.. i dont have any side windows yet anyway.

I quick and dirty fabricated a couple .060 aluminum plates and sandwiched the cowl in between... I will cut some new plates that exactly match the reliefs out of 0.125 and put a nice engine turned finish on them... but the mockup works just fine... I know i took a few pictures and I will upload them ...

12v Gear Motor PWM Variable Speed 12vdc Gearmotor 50RPM

Yeh, one glance at that induction, and I see what you mean with your Handle on here, ya THINK??

is that a small brake booster on there?? and so I assume from the appearance you doing a under dash HVAC unit..... another thing, is that it looks like the power steering pump don't have much wrap on the belt....have you driven it?? if no squeel, that would be cool.....just surprising to ME......

IF I missed a thread, sorry, but love to see more pix of that project there....

here is the old vs new my guess is 2lbs weight savings the new motor is 1/3 the size... sorry for the non-scientific quantification...

the dash mounted controller is a couple oz...
