1967 Mustang Wiper Motor Replacement
I've read a number of threads on wiper motor replacement but am not getting the answer I need. My original motor has one contact tab coming off the back of the gear case. The rebuilt Cardone wiper motor does not have this contact tab. I took the cover off, and the tab connects to a contact switch that opens and closes as the gear assembly turns. Is this needed for anything (example: park circuit)? It does not appear to have been connected, but this has had a couple of owners that didn't do very good repair work. The shop manual shows a ground wire that is seperate from the 4 prong plug. I am assuming the ground wire is the brass strap that connects from the bracket to one of the motor mounting bolts. Working under the dash is not allot of fun, so I want to make sure I have this right before I button it up. Any help is greatly appreciated.
