Nearly finished my project now, it has it's first MOT in 8 years on monday, and the last thing to do was put in some wiper linkage as someone had converted it to a single one, unfortunately it was broken when I got the car so I bought a normal linkage and fitted it in.

When I turn the wipers on, the arms go straight down into the scuttle panel and get stuck. Tried taking the arms off, running it then replacing the arms in the park position and they do the same thing. Tried setting them higher and they go over the a frame?

Was the single wiper set to centre park? This is done by moving the position of the arm on the motor so it sounds to me like you need to reposition the arm.

Not sure if it was set to the centre as I rescued t from a scrap yard by which time it had no arms.

Stupid woman incoming: Is the motor arm inside/under the actual cup for the motor where the magnets are or do you mean something else?

There is an arm that spins round on the motor, the while linkage is connected to it. This can be taken off and placed at a different angle. It's held on with a single nut.
