  1. G'day all. an update on the wipers I received 2 new arms for the pantograph type set up. They are off a LHD & RHD Triumph Stag so it gives a full sweep to the edge of the windscreen. I'm using Mini clubman wiper motor wheel box's & tubes for the wiper control system. this should provide a lot better coverage than the existing VW setup. these are the arms

  2. I have a video of a modification I did. It took about an hour to cut the mini wiper motor into bits to use. I made a bracket to bolt the cut the drive section off the Lucas motor & bolt it to a 307 Peugeot wiper motor. It's on my Facebook page called modified KOMBI & VW projects. I tried to load it onto here
     
  3. good evening all Some more fine Pommy engineering arrived today. I had to weld 2 sections of the worm drive cable together to make it long enough to move the post to the right spot.

  4. More great stuff, I love the "this WILL work" attitude and the seeming ease with which you find some part and bend it to your will.
    Look forward to each post

    these are the arms from the UK the LHD unit had been assembled wrong. I had to elongate the lock pin hole the remove the pivot point rivet. the next step to getting a working wiper is to extend the arms by 5cm's o improve the sweep area. This is the LHD unit before I rectified the fault.

    I emailed the suppliers in the UK about the assembly mistake they assured me they were right. I then sent better pcs of before & after deconstructing & re constructed & the admitted I was right Bad blue by the manufacturer. Now I have to have a rivet made up in stainless to replace the one I ground down to fix the problem.

  6. G'day to all the Fine English Lucas wiper experts. Can any of you. help me with a problem with the wiper conversion. On ECLECTIC I have a
    105 deg sweep wheel on the wiper motor. It's not long enough. If anyone has any ideas on this please let me know. Dr Goggle just can't find a comprehensive thread for me.
