Hi, on the dash board was an ordinary wiper knob that turned on the wipers; It had several detents in the switch and each detent was a diffferent speed.

My 1972 Chevy "Snap-On" truck had power brakes that were powered in the same way.

Hi, Hydro boost and hydaulic wipers worked from the power steering pump pressure. On 462 Lincolns the pump was mounted to the timing cover and turned directly from the crank shaft
Hi, my Mac Tools truck in 1986 built on a GM P-30 chassis with a Grumman Olsen body had hydro boost power brakes, and it was also a gas engine.

Boy, we've dragged this thread way off topic, from power windshield wipers to ABS systems...
Hi, the early Ford/Lincoln ABS system was called "Sure Track"; It had a control module under the dash and a second vacuum booster and master cylinder mounted, on the frame, under the A/C evaporator case.

Hi, looking at the picture, the main body of this wiper motor looks very much like a vacuum motor, but vacuum wipers only had one small vacuum hose connected to it instead of the two larger hydraulic hoses. Also the cable connection from the in-dash switch is the same set up for both type motors.

The 1966 T-bird had wipers operated with fluid from the power steering pump. I would guess that the '64 and '65 did also. The control was a lever that could be position anywhere from off to full on.

My 1965 Lincoln Continental had the same set up as your T-Bird. It was a fully variable speed control and very reliable..no leaks or mechanical problems during the time I had the car.
