I managed to get hold of an electric wiper motor to replace the non-working vacuum unit in my 57 BelAir. It's in great shape except for the "fiber cam" on the switch. I checked it out by manually activating the points per the repair manual and it runs fine. Only half of the "fiber cam" is there. Someone had taken it apart and I guess the broken part of the end of the "fiber cam" fell out. It's no big problem to make this piece from circuit board or other similar material, but I don't have the whole piece to use as a templet. Does anyone have one of these out at the moment that can take a stright on picture of the "fiber cam" and reply with the picture? I can take the picture in photoshop and size it to the part I have left and make an exact templet copy for my unit. I'd be glad to make more for someone that needs one if my home made one works correctly. I have tried to find a replacement piece, but I think I would have a easer time finding "Hens Teeth". Thanks all, I really want my wipers to actiually work.
