wiper arm size 77 pinto
« on: August 27, 2015, 01:17:49 PM »
I have found two wiper arms without wiper blades on them but am unsure if they go to the pinto so I was wondering if anyone knew the size of the wiper arms for a 1977 pinto.  One is 13 and a quarter inches and the other is 16 inches. Can anyone tell me if they are the right lengths?
trying to finish putting this pinto back together

On my 77 pinto Runabout both of my wiper arms are the same length. Approx 15" from center of pivot point to the angled attachment point of the wiper blades, and I use blades that are both approx 16" from end to end.

I pulled a set of chromed ones off of a 60's ford truck, 14", they are shorter than my original(one arm). They cover the widow well, even being shorter. But the morning sun burns my retinas out with the reflection!
