I have a Bonneville wiper motor in the mail, should be here Friday.
Generally, I am guessing the motors are about equal power-wise. I can't really tell much on speed, since I haven't got the wiper transmission hooked up yet. I will have to drill three new mounting holes in the mounting bracket, but the threads are in the motor casing, so I won't have to deal with the bracket holding threads.Thanks so much for your continued perseverance and sharing the info with the members. How does the motor compare with a typical G-body motor? Is it more powerful and is the high speed function faster? It's nice that it's a smaller unit. Will the crank arm from a G-body fit? I guess you had to re-drill the mounting base to position the new motor? Is the S-10 and Bonneville plugs identical?
Also, have you determined the park position of the wipers? Where is the washer pump located? Sorry to barrage you with a multitude of questions.
Great job!!!I still need to add the delay wiper switch in the column, but once the switch is changed the swap will be complete. If you don't want to change the switch out, you can just cut the low speed wire and add a 1 Megohm potentiometer inline. Easy peasy.
