Wiper linkage rubs cowl
« on: September 12, 2017 - 08:40:41 pm »
I hooked up the windshield wiper linkage to my 3 speed wiper motor on my '70'Cuda today and everything seems to work okay except that the linkage that connects to the motor rubs on the upper cowl.  I've attached a picture with the rub area circled in red.  I've also included a picture of the linkage arm connected to the back of the motor rotating arm.  First of all any idea why my linkage is rubbing and how do I correct it?  Secondly, the attachment to the back of the motor inside the cowl seems pretty straight forward, but please look at the picture and tell me if I have it connected incorrectly.  If so, what do I have incorrect please. As always, thanks for the help.  :help:

"usraptr" = United States raptor - bird of prey = United States Bald Eagle.  FYI, somebody else thought of it first so I had to drop the "O" in raptor.
