Wiper Motor Pivot Shaft

My 76" MOHO does not have the pivot shaft from the drivers side motor to the passengers wiper. Does anyone have a spare? or give me measurements of yours so I can fabribate.

My 84 MH has two wiper motors, one on the driver side, one on the passenger side. The motors each drive pivot shafts. This site has lots of wiper parts Sub-catagoy Page

I was able to find the pivots for my rig by selecting wiper parts, parts by type, pivot shafts.

Wiper Pivot Shaft

Thanks Guy,

Does each motor run off the same controller. I thought as most vehicles go, that the drivers side has a motor and the passengers is driven by a shaft that runs between the perhaps my passengers side motor is shot?

There are two separate motors. Our 74 Argosy motorhome is setup the same as our 84 310 motorhome, at least physically. The one physical difference that I noticed was the Argosy had stops installed on the bottom edge of the windshield to keep the wiper arms from going down to far. Our 310 does not have those stops installed.

I don't know how the earlier wipers are wired but on our 84 there is a bank of diodes to isolate the wiring between the two wiper motors. I would assume the 74 would be the same but have no proof of that.

I would start by checking your wiring to ensure you're getting power to the passenger side wiper motor when you turn the switch on.
