1973 windshield wiper arms
« on: May 22, 2024, 06:33:18 PM »
The wiper arm is broken on the left side on my 1973 wagon. I found a new wiper arm, but it says "right side" Are the right and left wiper arms the same on a '73? I noticed that other Ford models that use the same design use the same wiper arm for both sides. Thanks. Jerry.

As far as I can tell the wipers on my '73 wagon are the same. I measured from the perceived center of the pivot point to the inside corner just before it angles to where the blade mounts and both were 14-3/4". Hope that helps.

Yes that helps. It seems many Fords used these same wiper arms, and, and right and left are the same part#. There seems to be very little Pinto specific information out there. Thank you.
