Default Electric Wiper Motor

This past weekend I replaced the OEM vacuum motor with an electric unit from Newport Engineering.

It was not what you would consider an easy task, but we finally got it finished.

The new motor mounts to the stock bracket but trying to get the left side screw installed was nearly impossible. I finally threaded the provided screw into the motor mount from the opposite side and added a nut to secure it. The right side went in without drama.

The electrical install was straight forward enough and the switch that came with the kit worked well. We were able to use the stock switch knob and bezel so looking at it one would never know the conversion took place. The wipers work fine, two speeds and they park as advertised.

Is there a market for the old vacuum motor?
