  1. Oh yeah, what am I thinking, for some reason I had the breather dipstick combo used on some other makes in my head....guess it's late. Still s3ms like drilling would be easiest, even if I love an excuse to weld sheet metal.
  2. Probably drill it out, supposed to have a breather tube regardless right?

    Ply33's cross reference is one of the ones that has the incorrect standard al130 listed as compatible to the echlin al63 and autolites igc-1107s

    Btw here's where some confusion can come into play at some parts stores. Napa echlin pns for these are al62 and al63. A Napa echlin al98 cap is actually a standard al130 which is also a flat 6 cap. Just not the right one here. To boot, some vehicles could have either of the corresponding distributors installed. You can imagine how many cross references have these mixed up. While a standard al63 is actually a universal condenser that's used for these. So again some mix-ups there.

    It's an igs-4207-1 distributor cap IGC-1107S . rotor IGS-1016B Cap is standard motor products AL96 Rotor is standard AL98 The standard parts you can get at O'Reilly's.
  7. Ok just to verify. You have hot connected to the lower right terminal. Ear grounded. Upper left grounded. Now jumper hot also to the upper right. Is this what you are doing?
  8. Either way it goes to the coil and if you still have points the polarity shouldn't matter as long as one side is neg and one is positive. So your ign wire must be showing negative and on one side of the coil and the positively grounded dist wire must go to the other side.
  9. Was it still popular in September of 1985? I think that's when doc came up with the flux capacitor. Might not apply to flat 6 though, not sure they can do 88mph
  10. The upper left terminal needs a ground when hot is applied to the upper right in order to kick out the solenoid. I think your intermittent issue has more to do with the generator as @Dodgeb4ya was saying. Probably a bad spot in it's commutator or sticking brush preventing the solenoid from energizing when it happens to land there when shut down. If it still clicks but doesn't spin when installed, it's more likely what hickory is saying.
  11. Yeah, you're right. Still dealing with cyclic inductive reactance in a motor though, which is why I guess I called it impedance. In any case I was just messing around. Problem here is, we don't have separated arm and field terminals. Total overall resistance is unchanged so limiting current or voltage on our wiper terminal has the same net effect. Limited power. Shunt wound limiting field increases speed, assuming arm is not limited. Limiting arm decreases speed. Limit both and you've limited total power. Slows down. Power in ^=power out Voltage and current the motor take are tied by their relationship , we can limit the availability of either. Unless we're splicing into the motor internally and changing the arm and field separately none of the speed control methods apply explicitly.
  12. Well, technically the wiper motor has impedance, and it changes based on the load. Haha I'm just being cantankerous. Power is the factor that will determine it's speed. Power ,watts, is current times voltage. You can change the current or the voltage to change the power. The simplistic way is to add resistance. That's not the best method with a motor since you want to match it's "resistance" to drop the power in half. If the motors impedance happens to be matching at the given time then both would get 6v. However It can have a much lower resistance at startup or with a load, that's impedance at work. It can be done that way and work since most of it's operation it sees a fairly average resistance. Since sniper chose the words current limiting circuit, I'm guessing he probably actually built a fairly simple circuit that's designed to match the motors impedance or some other method a bit more correct than simply adding a resistor. That eliminates the extra slowdown at startup and when the wipers change direction that you get by simply adding resistance.

    Yep. I would just be surprised it got this far before a problem arose if it has that much slop side to side.
