Wipers Shit the Bed

In blizzard conditions and an hour from my destination when the DS wiper decides to shit the bed. Only thing I can think of doing is shifting the PS to the DS and see of that can get me off the mountain and back home tomorrow. H8 these trucks sometimes.

I had that happen on a CJ7 in high school. The snow was so heavy it burned out the motor. I taped together two yard sticks and my buddy and I "squeegeed" the window up and down the whole way home with the side windows zipped open, in a snow storm. It sucked but we got home.

Good luck and be safe.

Haha, I delivered a 90 to a customer yesterday and on the way home in the winter storm my d2's wipers just fell off!! I had to keep reaching out side the window to use the broken wiper blade to wipe it so I could see!! Fun trip!!!

Yep, that's what it probably is. Kills me that they gave zero warning. Just all if a sudden the DS drops below the windscreen. I was concerned I might strip things beyond repair so I just went wiperless.

Replaced the DS/PS wiper wheel boxes last night. I highly recommend finding NOS wheel boxes. About 2 years ago I replaced my PS box with whatever RN was selling. Very poor part IMO. It didn't last long. George had a pair at RDS for a good price. They are so old though that I decided to brake clean them and regrease with lithium white grease. Hopefully the lithium will hold up better than the tacky crap Lucas used back in the day. I also threw on new arms and spindle gear thingamajigs. It's a nice feeling when the wipers are performing strong again.
