Need some help.. How should the wiper motor be mounted in the window frame? Or do I have the wrong motor or missing something? It feels wrong as it looks now..

PLO--beautiful restoration, thanks for sharing! I've driven in rural Sweden and always thought it would be a great place to own a Willys jeep. Your photos prove it!

I don't have one of those, but from others' pics, it looks right in your photo.  I think you're missing a bracket between the w/s inner frame and the wiper motor, though.  At least, I think I've seen a bracket there in some pics.  However, I could be totally mistaken.  That's a really nice Jeep, w/s wipers or not.  Thumbs Up

The motor is mounted with the round side up as you have it, but your motor is not from a CJ2A. Take a look at the photos in this guide and you will see the type of bracket needed. The motor is mounted to the bracket and the bracket is attached to the windshield frame with two screws that go into the threaded holes in the bracket so you will need two additional holes in the frame. The hose connection should be pointing to the left.

The non directional on the old Jeeps make it right!
Great job on a beautiful old timer.

My brother has done a extremely good job with the electrical system, everything works great. 

Tomorrow all liquids will be changed, and some minor fixes.. like clutch adjustment and having problem with some vibrations on the tub.. 

The only thing left is to get the right rims painted and tires on. But it runs and I can enjoy it now Big smile

Need get the right towing hook also.











Very nice photos !! You have done a great job

This weekend I changed tyres on my jeep and helped my friend to change the clutch and adjust the valves on his machine, then we took the jeeps for a spin! It was the first ride this summer, and it was amazing!Cool We drove to my brother and his girlfriend to cut down a tree, fun day overall. Here are some pic's to enjoy!

Hello Raj, welcome to the site. Go ahead and start a thread in the "Your Jeep project" forum and introduce yourself. Pictures are a big help. If your frame is off 1/4" it may not be that big an issue. You may end up making slight adjustments along the way.Big smile
