Windsheild Wiper Help 54 3100

I can't find wipers to fit my existing wiper arms on the 54 3100. I have anco 41-01 univeral wiper arms and cannot find blades anymore to fit. I called anco AND summit with no results. I tried ordering a set of trico arms and blades and despite the entire parts store staff (and 2 customer) the wipers can't be attached to the arms. The trico arms 51-151 are identical to the 41-01 arms. The Trico blades to fit this arm absolutely DO NOT FIT.

Any help appreciated.

Re: Windsheild Wiper Help 54 3100

Thanks!! this has been a real problem. I tried both online and local auto parts and several dept stores. Just before I saw your reply i went into another NAPA store (been in 3 no luck) and came up with what may be a solution. I marched in with the Anco 41-01 in hand and we tried a bunch of blades. The NAPA NP-12 fit fine using one of the included adapters. Was only $8. I tried it and it fits by adjusting the arm length to minimum and blade angle to lay flush when parked. I think I may cut off 1/2" of the arm slide to give a bit more clearance at the top of the wipe swing. Hope this helps others.
