The vacuum wiper for my 1930 Model A never worked properly. A few years ago, I took it apart and lubricated it, however it only marginally improved its performance. A picked up a box full of old wiper motors from a friend of mine. After ripping a few apart, I identified one that seemed to be in good enough condition to repair. After cleaning the parts and lubricating them with some Lucas oil, I managed to get one that works quite well. Now I will be prepared for a trip to Orillia on Sunday as the weather prediction is for heavy showers.
