Default 1959 Tbird Wiper Motor Switch

Does anyone have a schematic for a wiper switch on a 1959 Tbird. I replaced the vacuum operated wiper motor which works great, they just don't shut off and I don't see how they are tied into the motor as it only has one vacuum hose going to it from the engine.
Just bought the car.

Thanks for your help.

Marvin

The wiper motor has a push/pull switch on it which is controlled by the wiper cable. Where the cable connects to the wiper motor is adjustable. You may just need to adjust it so there's more pull from the cable and the switch closes all the way. There is also a vacuum operated switch on the motor that is part of the washer system. That switch needs to be closed also for the motor to turn off.
