This is the wiper motor that I have for my ’60 Impala. I’m not sure if it is the original because back in the ‘70’s the county had a field full of cars separate from the dump and I found a ’60 Impala and took a few things off and this may have been one of them. It has provision for washer but I don’t remember having washers on the car and when I checked to see where the water reservoir would have mounted there are no holes anywhere near that area and I don’t remember ever seeing a bottle or bracket. Did GM have a single speed with no washer? I’m assuming this is a single speed motor. So, my main question is how to bench test a single speed. I have the procedure posted by a CT member on testing a two speed but need that for a single speed because I don’t want to throw 12 volts on it not knowing what I’m doing and damaging it if it is good. It may not be any good I’m not sure. Lamar

Hi Lamar,
Looks like a single speed motor for sure. But cannot say as to what year the whole thing is from.
Can't say Chevrolet made Impalas without washers, rather unlikely.
Perhaps the washer bottle/reservoir holes were filled when the car was painted?

Lamar. it is a single speed motor. Yes, they made versions with and without pumps built in, among other variants.

This will help.

Thanks guys, I have looked at a lot of 60 chevy images since posting and most looks like the motor is round not rectangle, some with washer and some without. But back to my main question is how to bench test it. As I said I don’t want to damage it because of not knowing how to properly test it. Lamar

I checked the part number, and it is a 1960 Chevrolet single speed combination wiper / washer unit. I suggest checking a factory service manual for test procedure and wiring diagram.

Thanks junky, I'v searched but really can't find anything, will keep looking. I really don't think that this is the original motor but will get into that later. Lamar

Take a look at Fig 240 and see if that gives you enough to get started.

Sorry for the delay in responding to your reply's but have been busy with wedding "stuff" this past week. Ray I had looked at the drawing in my shop manual and will try this but I don't have an ammeter, will see what happens. Jim thank you for the info page good info. Lamar

Please let us know what happens when you hook up power to the motor. I don't think you will need an ammeter just to see if it runs.

Ray this is what I have found and have decided to do. What I found: I’m not sure why I was worried that I didn’t have an ammeter when the meter goes around the wire while checking amps. I had given away most of my HVAC tools but did find an old meter and just for curiosity I did use it. When I first connected the – to ground per the drawing and the + to the inside terminal per the drawing, the motor started without the jumper wire. The output shaft turned approx. 20 revolutions then stopped. Touched the outboard and ground with the jumper and motor turned until I removed the jumper and it continued to turn once again for approx. 20 revolutions then stop but never in the parked position. What I have decided to do: I agree that this is a single speed motor with washer that was probably one of the pieces that I took off a ’60 chevy in the middle 70’s at the dump per my initial post. I am reasonably sure that my original system was a single speed with no washers and here is my reasoning, there are no holes on the firewall near where the water reservoir would have been mounted. There are dimples in that area and John suggested that they perhaps could have been filled at the body shop before the paint but when I use a punch to check the dimples they are solid. The wiper wire hanging down and circled in the picture is the original wire. Also, a picture of the original wire and switch. I’m probably not going to use this motor but try to find a single speed w/o washer. I may visit this later but my curiosity is causing me to waste too much time right now that I could be using doing some important things that I should be doing to the car. Thanks a bunch for all your help. Lamar

This is the original wire to the wiper motor before I removed it from the car.

Area where I've seen most washer reservoir mounted. No apparent holes.
