Default Help!!! Need wiper motor info and pictures!!!

This is my problem----I took out my original column which had the shifter on the column, and put in a rebuilt column with no shifter mechanism--when I did this I changed the wiper mechanism on the column to a non-pulse unit

When we assembled the entire unit back it the car it all worked out and everything plugged in as it was suppose to like factory install. This is my dilemma, my original wiper motor was bad so the custom shop tossed it-----the plug left in the original harness is or a four prong setup--Questions are as follows:

--does anyone have this same 4 prong plug on the back of their pulse wiper motor? (kinda L shaped)

--if I purchase another pulse motor assembly will it work even though the unit on the column is for non-pulse?

Not sure if i am being clear? Any help is truly appreciated...


Thanks

Pete ATL/NYC

Hello my 81 with the original non pulse wiper motor had a three prong plug far the motor and a two prong plug far the washers. The pulse wirper motor that I have has the L shaped four prong plug. So I am thinking the wiring would not be the same. Hope this helps.

PS also if I was you I would buy a new pulse wiper switch to put in your rebuilded column, rather than rewiring it.

What I've found is, that the wiper switch has to be compatible with the type of wiper motor being used or it won't operate properly.
If you go back with a pulse motor, you will also need the pulse column switch to interact with it.

Here's a pic of the plug set-up that I used to convert my old style wiper motor to the later style.

I converted from a dash mounted switch to a column or stalk mounted switch when I changed out my column to a floor shift tilt unit.
I also had to convert some of the wiring under the dash/column which required a later pig tail/ plug.
