It's been forever since I looked at mine and I'm not home. I'll try to find something in the assembly manual when I get a chance.

Is your switch / knob on top of the dash as in the photo? That's where they were on '53s. It looks to me that you do not have the correct vacuum motor as it should have a lever on it to connect to the knob on the top of the dash. Below that is a photo of the correct vacuum motor.

Yes I have the knob on the dash and the hook underneath, that wiper motor was installed but not hooked up.

I don't think there is a way to hook it up...the motor is for some other application. I found a motor that looks like yours on eBay and it is listed as a 1942 Buick, Chevrolet, Olds motor. The guys in that forum might be able to verify that.

I did add another photo of the other side of the correct motor to my initial post so you can now see both sides for better I.D. purposes.

Additionally, I did find the Wiper Instruction Sheet in the 1947-55 First Series Assembly Manual. The unfortunate thing is that only the Right Drive assembly is featured. I am in the process of switching out vacuum motors myself. I will warn you, it is not an easy task. The previous owner had the [non-functional] motor in upside down. Personally, I am attacking the gauges and some of the wiring on my truck as well, as that needs to be addressed. The gauges are not a pleasant task either. In any event, here are the instruction sheets...one flipped horizontally to better illustrate a left drive vehicle. The motor only has one hose. Two hoses are shown to illustrate two separate models / sizes of truck and where the hose connects on each model.

I'm back home now. I can get you pictures of my 53 3100 if you like. They worked the last time I used them in 1989. I think they are all original. I bought the truck in 1980. I bought an entire new system. As long as my new ones match you can have anything you need.

Not sure what happened there. I bought a whole new system. As long as my new parts match you can have anything you need.

Just an FYI. I am learning that switching the vacuum motor goes a heck of a lot smoother if you drop the speedometer and work through that hole. I already had the speaker grille removed and that does offer good access to the 3/8" nuts on the back of the speedo. It can be done from below, but the brake and clutch pedals really are not fun to lay up next to and work around. The brace from the cowl to the steering column is a real @$#*% also.

Correct / rebuilt vacuum wiper motor installed in my '53 6500 flat bed. I did use larger fender type washers on this installation. With the lower screw attached to the motor, I slide the lower screw into the fork of the bracket. Then fed the upper screw through the upper fork and into the motor. This photo was taken from about under the ignition switch and the coil cable going past is the choke cable. The vacuum hose points down and you can also see how the linkage is connected on the switch.
