Does this wiper motor look right?

Happy N.Y! The wiper motor works well in both speeds, but the wipers begin their return to horizontal from just past vertical which can't be right. Would be much better if they went farther, especially for the passenger. Neither Bentley or the Masters electrical books mention any adjustability for this which makes me think that there isn't any. Do I have the wrong motor or a problem with the wheel boxes?

Thanks,
Steve

It looks like the correct motor. There is some adjustment of the linkage that attaches to the motor.

Did you try moving the wiper arms on the spindles?

Thanks for the replies guys. The wipers park in the correct position, so their position on the spindles is probably correct. I'll look at any adjustment possible at the cable today. I have the dash apart and window frame lifted as I'm replacing the dash pad. I guess that this would be the time to climb under and inspect the wheel boxes.

if i remember right, not all wheel boxes are created equally. tr250 is different than tr6. trf lists different p/ns for each

That is the correct wiper motor based on serial number and manufacture date. Sounds like a gear problem.

Yes, it does sound like a gear issue - missing/worn teeth?

Thanks for your help and info guys. I'm almost done with my dash & heater project (checked the wheel boxes while I had everything out, and they're good) so I'm leaning towards a gear issue also. One I complete the current projects, I'll open the wiper gear box, and check it out, and let you know.

Thanks again,
Steve
