69-70 windshield wiper question...
I am confused at what I am running into on my XL. ...maybe someone out there knows something different. ...on the 69-70's the wiper arms are a flat shaft with a short "nipple" on them for the wiper replacements to slide onto. However, I am finding that all of the plastic wiper setups today can't handle the torque of when the wipers shift sweep directions and essentially try to lay the other way. The plastic is just giving way. Does anyone else run into this issue?
I have a '69LTD parts car with stainless steel blade replacements still on them (rubber blades are bad) but that has a metal connection mechanism, that can handle the change in direction of sweep. I don't know if I can use that as the replacement blades from today, probably won't fit today.
Any thoughts? I could try posting some pics later.
