Vacuum Wiper Motor Rebuilding

AMC and Rambler Vacuum Wiper Motor rebuilding Service

Understanding how the motor works will help you pinpoint a vacuum wiper or a booster problem. The Vacuum wiper motorís rubber hose is connected to the vacuum booster section of the fuel† pump.† The fuel pump is then connected to a metal tube which comes from the intake manifold where the vacuum is derived.†† The function of the booster is to provide vacuum while the car is accelerating.† If the booster is defective your wipers would stop dead while you are accelerating and resume while youíre just cruising.† First check your rubber hoses because 30 - 40 year old hoses tend to crack and break easily.† Do not replace with a standard vacuum hose as they tend to collapse.† Use reinforced hoses, a fuel line hose works well. To test† the motor start your car and set speed to curb idle, next wet your windshield (never use wipers on a dry windshield as any dirt† will scratch windshield) and turn on wipers.† Rev the engine, if the motor stops and then resumes once back at idle speed that might indicate a defective motor or booster pump. If it slows down a little it probably good.† You should check the motor under load condition. To do this slow down the motor first.† If the motor is bad at slow speed it might not even move.† Now† while the motor is moving at a slow speed see if it will stall while trying to stop it with your hand it should not stop completely. Remember to be careful when doing this test and only at slowest speed.† If the motor stalls completely it is a defective motor and you must now try to locate a replacement or have it rebuilt.†† Most† 63 Models and 64 Americans to 71 AMC models use the same motor except for the backing plate.† So donít pass up one at a show if the backing plate is different from yours and thatís all a vender has.† Just drill out the rivet and replace with your existing plate using machine screws and nuts.†
