Snotty,  try a couple of thing before you buy a whole new one.

Re-solder all the connections on the gear housing.  I had one get intermittent years ago fro a cold solder joint & that fixed that one.

You can remove the gear housing cover plat ( with the wires soldered on top )  & take a look at the Park points on the underside.    Before you pop the cover mark it's orientation to the housing,  If it gets off it can cause more issues.    When you get the cover off the points are just under & you'll see the actual park cam on top of the main gear.  The points are what trigger the motor into reverse so it slide into the cam to park them.  The arm on the points should be straight ( not curved as in this pic...I did straighten them ) & you can file them just like an old set of distributor points & get them clean.    I got that little bit of info from Jules about 6 years ago when I was working on it for the Fury.   Fixed it on mine & worth a try.

Hi Butch. . .Glad to see you
 
I mentioned that earlier, but it seems to not have stuck.  I have an NOS switch here somewhere

Quote from: Snotty
The wiper arms on my '70 Newport have stopped recessing.  They are staying up and will stop in any position I turn off the switch.  But, even if I push, they will not recess.
 


Snotty, Snotty, Snotty....... sheesh...I'll bet that wiper motor never had to break frozen wiper blades free from it's icy windshield.....or are East Coast and Canadian wiper motors tougher, just like those of us who live here?

CA cars get the CA emissions package which includes a weak-kneed wiper motor and heater system....plus cooling systems that can stand a lot of idling in CA traffic jams

Kinda like Bob says ,  they're pretty tuff.  I have broken Ice loose with mine & it still works fine.

Shouldn't need any NOS parts unless the points are broken.  Just clean & adjust.   That metal plate on the Plastic gear is what triggers the points to send it into reverse & the channels in the gear are what guide it to the park position.

I took the gear out of mine & used white lithium inside to freshen it all & un-soldered all the wires since the covering on the solid wire coming out of the motor is a fabric kinda stuff & heatshrinked them all.

I just did my Darts motor too & found this out.   The pic above is apparently just for the recessed wiper setup. You have the cam arrangement & the connections to the wiper linkage are just posts.    The Darts motor look identical outside but has no cam assy inside or points.  Non-recess type obviously on the Dart.    The park function on those is the plastic cam assy on the motor arm that connects to the linkage.

So if you're gonna replace you need to verify which one it is first.

Took mine cover off yesterday; all looked well.  Points were clean and working.  I could get the motor to go into "reverse" but it still wound not park - just kept running backwards.  When turned off they returned to what they were doing before - running fine but not reversing.
 
Steve, I'm looking forward to receiving the new motor you sent.  Thanks!

Steve, it's clean, it just isn't working.  Sometimes things just go bad.

You know what they say about assumptions - I had not even received that motor while I was writing any of the previous stuff.
