Mounting Windshield Wiper


I've been going through an old box of parts and rebuilt the windshield wiper, but when it comes to mounting it, well something is either missing or upside down.
Any ideas?

Thanks to a phone call and several pictures from Bob Bush, I'm back on the right track.
My wiper is now setup correctly.

At least on the Star M's there were two different motors. One similar to yours and the other was a Trico linear model. It had a piston that moved back and forth inside a tube. The mounting holes were different on each one.

Rebuilding the wiper was the easy part and there was no pot metal cancer either.
Figuring out how to mount it to my 619 was the hard part.

Yeah Rick you got it right. Use a thin oil like sewing machine oil and suck it through both ways. Like the Trico badge! Ross
