Re: vacuum wiper motor

question. where the arms attach to the motor on mine the motor has regular
nuts on the plate coming out of the motor but the wiper arms have round
rubber grometts in them. is that right. seams like a square peg in a round hole

Might not look right but that is how it attaches. An then the double keyhole spring retainer to hold them on.

Re: vacuum wiper motor

I use vacuum wipers every rain in my daily driver 59 Rambler. And did when I was driving my truck every day too, they actually work GREAT!
