6-terminal wiper motor??

Hi All - Newbie here, just got my 66 C20 delivered today, after finishing touches by my good buddy's shop in North Carolina. I think it turned out well. Hope the pics shows up OK.

Here's my dilemma:

Shop tells me that the C20 is wired for a 6-terminal wiper motor, which is missing. After searching the interweb, can't really find much on 6-terminal wiper motors. Found one that's designed for some older non-chevy makes, but not sure if it will fit. Questions:

1. Any ideas where I might find a 6-terminal wiper motor?

2. Any better ideas for retro-fitting to a more common (4-terminal) motor?

thanks for any suggestions,

rusty

Re: 6-terminal wiper motor??

Welcome to the forum

Nice looking truck.

I would say that the 6 wire terminals would be the typical terminals for the 2 speed wiper motor plus the wires for the washer pump. All you should need is the typical 2 speed wiper motor with the washer. What you have is nothing odd, rare or unusual.

Great, some progress, appreciate the quick reply. Can't get the darn thing registered without an inspection first!

Apologies in advance for the rookie question here:

So should I be able to find something online, like a 4-terminal 2 speed motor, or look for something different? Found this on a remanufactured parts shop, as the choices for my truck (Cardone.com):
  • 1-speed (no terminal count listed)
  • 2-speed, 3 terminal
  • 2-speed, 4 terminal

Re: 6-terminal wiper motor??

That is a great looking truck. My truck has a single speed wiper. And I will be doing the 6 terminal wiper motor upgrade. My problem is I can't find a wiring diagram for the upgrade. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: 6-terminal wiper motor??

I would say that you need the wiper motor with 4 terminals. You will also need the washer pump, which will have the other 2 terminals.

I will see what I can do about a pic or two showing what you need to do for the upgrade

Re: 6-terminal wiper motor??

Sorry for the delay in getting these pics for you. To do the 2 speed with washer upgrade, you will also need this additional wire harness.

Re: 6-terminal wiper motor??

Another question. I have a five terminal wiper motor. What do I do with the jumper that is shown going from the lower right connector as shown to the upper right. It is the upper right terminal that is not on my motor. If anyone has a quick answer that would be good since I'm in the shop installing it now.
