The pack of gasket material I bought to use for the fuel sending unit came in handy again. After spending some time cleaning, I used the thin cardboard gasket and copied the old one. I'm going to use some lithium grease for the shaft ends before I close it up. I gave it a test try and there is easy movement with suction and blowing.

Default 1959- these hoses behind the dash (pic)

Nyles sent me some pix of the breakdown of his vacuum wiper motor that he restored. In the article he posted regarding lubricating the wiper motor it says not to use brake fluid, as others have used, because of the danger it can pose to your paint job. It was suggested to use a light machine oil instead. This information is now part of the Technical Resource Library under Windshield Wiper & Washer. Here are the pix.

I'm assuming you use the machine oil on the 'bowl' where the flapper would be swinging back and forth, and a light grease for each of the rollers?

I don't know the answer to that question, but I bet someone on here does. Or check out the Technical Resource Library in the Wiper-Washer section.
