Welcome to our resource for MG Car Information.
MG MGA - Wiper Motor Restorer..?
My wiper motor refuses to do anything other than get very hot. I have tried everything to persuade it not to do this.
Is there anyone in the UK that I could send it to get it re-built and bench tested..?
|Give up on it and upgrade to an MGB twin speed motor- |
MOTOR-WIPER NEW 14W
MINI 67-94/MGB 67-80/SPRITE & midget 68-79
NOTE: DOES NOT INCLUDE DRIVE GEAR
add the relevant gear wheel (from Memory a 100 degree is better than the 105 I used)
SWITCH-WIPER 2 SPEED
MGB/SPRITE & MIDGET
MGB/MGC/V8/SPRITE & MIDGET 67-80/TRIUMPH STAG/TRIUMPH TR6
Instructions are here
Otherwise contact Steve Hunt via eBay - he does the motors exchange
|But first check that the rack can move back and forth and isn't either rusted solid or gummed up with old hard grease|
|Presumably you have checked the brushes? This would be a cheap repair if they were dead.................Mike|
