Wiper Motors / Grearbox

Has anyone rebuilt these? I noticed this weekend that mine are pretty loose. When traveling above 30mph the wind grabs the drivers side and whips it into the upright position. My guess is that it wont take too long for that to get seriously broken if it keeps getting grabbed like that.

Maybe you're just driving to fast...

However, in answer to your question yes the wiper mechanisms can be rebuild. The question would be just which parts are worn out.

AM Equipment should have all the parts you need for a rebuild.

Thanks Brad! I wish I could have been driving that fast in it! My rig doesnt do more than 70ish. I've come close to 80 in it but I do not feel comfortable at those speeds.

If your steering isn't up to snuff then driving that fast can have one's life flash before their eyes

I know this from first hand experience from the maiden voyage of my old 310

I went through the whole front end! Everything is nice and tight with the exception of some upper control arm bushings, fixed 'em. I actually trust the Argosy more than any of my 3 trucks which are all form the 90s.

If your 90s trucks are anything like my 2000 F250 SD I understand what you mean
