My '68 Chevy C10 is being resurrected as a parts chaser/shop truck that is likely to be driven in any kind of weather. The truck isn't going to have a flashy paintjob or billet wheels, but it is my intent for it to be comfortable to drive and be safe at all times. We get a fair amount of rain here in the Midwest, so windshield wipers that work properly are a must. I opted for the intermittent delay switch and the windshield washer pump, as rain can be, well ... intermittent. And it is always nice to be able to wash off some bug guts or bird droppings while you are flying down the highway. Another option that is available from New Port Engineering is a shaft extension that is required if you are using the thicker factory dash panel.

My past experience with other brands of wiper motors in other vehicles, I have realized that being a bolt-in product does not always mean that the product is easy to install or works properly. However, the entire product line from New Port Engineering is make and model specific, and is a true bolt-in. This may not sound like a big deal, but time spent fabricating or re-engineering something after you have paid good money for it simply doesn't make sense. More importantly, this kit works, and works very well.

Follow along as I install a New Port Engineering wiper motor in my truck. This will probably be the easiest installation you could ever perform on your truck. And when you are cruising down the highway and the rainclouds open up, you'll be glad you did.
