M38 Artic top - What wipers?

Post by ad5zo » Thu Jul 31, 2008 7:33 pm

I have an M38 Arctic top with no wipers. Can anyone help me figure out which ones fit this top ... e.g. they are mounted at the top of the Windshield, not at the bottom. I made new arms for the windshield so it would fold on my GPW.

TB 9-2855-4 Arctic Top Installation on M38 tells you if the windshield shows up without wipers to simply use the wipers from the original windshield using the directions in TB 9-2855-2 Gas Heater Kit Install M38.

That would make them stock m38 wiper motors which would be Trico 63527, ORD# 7375189, WO# 674645 for original and service replacement when it is depleted would be ORD# 500844 and these are the same motors listed for the M38A1.

We sold NOS Surplus M-38 Hard Top kits back in the 50s, they had the ORD 800544, Trico S-583 Motor installed. They were same as CJ-2A, CCKW, M-37 motors with the Push-Pull knob.

Hope your GPW has a double acting fuel pump or those vac wipers will be stalling during acceleration and under load.
