1966 Continental Vacuum Question

Bill -

I just replaced the vacuum line to the wiper motor and have been unable to find in any manual what function it performs. I can see it comes from the control and goes through a adjustable (?) fitting and then to the motor. Thank you.

Hello Wayne -

When the windshield washer is activated, vacuum is momentarily sent to the wiper motor to automatically activate the wipers for approximately eight swipes. When the vacuum in the line bleeds off (at the adjustable fitting that you mention) the wipers should shut off and park. That fitting is adjustable for the count of swipes. Check it out for the above operation. This operation is also explained briefly in the owners manual.

Sincerely,

Bill
