Wiper Arms and Blades


Recommended Posts

What has anyone used for windshield wiper arms and blades? Or is there some hidden stock of originals? Anyone have any photos? Ideas? I will probable never need to use them but would like the look on my M29.

@Will Dodge Wiper arms and blades are made of unobtanium 😀 and are almost impossible to find replacements. Below is a reference photo for you.

My advice would be to have a chat with Wiperman and see if he can set you up with a period alternative. https://rebuildingtricowipers.com/ Wiperman.com

BTW he does not have anything for a weasel in stock nowadays. Years ago I purchased the last replacement blades he had.

Good luck with your search.

Has anyone tried just using WWII jeep wire arms and blades?  I am just wondering if the would fit on the shaft, and be approx. the correct length (I think weasel is 10" where jeep is 9 or 9.5?)

I tried the wwii jeep arms. They work great. Not perfectly original but I'm happy . Appears to be the correct splines end, with the jeep style hook blade which is easier to get than the anco elephant trunk blade.

Now, next question, does the electric wiper conversion mean you still use the manual wiper arm as well?1623977401733803623155203637222.thumb.jpg.5d7d0d34cee8a178e8ee5b3c2d5b7a1c.jpg

If you are aiming for the OEM look, then yes. Keep in mind that the OEM mechanical wiper arm is 9inches in length as opposed to the Motor driven 10inches arm. Wiper blades are all the same length.
