Re: 1962 Windshield wiper operation and repair

There is a paragraph in the  Factory Service Manual about how the "park" mechanism operates if I recall right. 

I remember reading an article, in I think an old Mopar Action magazine, that went through the wiper operation and 
troubleshooting. Just did a quick search and I don't think the old articles ever got put online though. :(  

Good question about the wiper  pedal wired switch schematic. Is it part of the "electrical" section in the Factory Service 

On a newer Mopar, when you activate the washer the wipers come on. Sounds like the same principle used in the 1962.  

Being a Mopar, check for bad grounds!
