Hello all

being restoring my KB5 for a while.

Just wondering if any one had had luck with finding replacement wiper motors , that is replacing the old 6 volt motors with 12v 

I don’t have any motors start with and secondly I cant find any motors small enough to fit up top

Any suggestions pleaseF59D8F7C-66BF-47D3-ACF9-570C86FBB94D.thumb.png.fcd9ee5714776ce39ff046e1821594d6.png

Looks fantastic!

Shouldn't those be vacuum motors? 

Where or how in the world did you find that perfect grill assembly?

More pictures and specs, please!

Good luck with your project!!

Thank you, was hard going , just posted picture of engine, the truck sat in a shed for 25 years ,  made some changes , oil filter , Carburator , bigger gear box by using an adapter plate on bell housing etc

the grill assembly come about 90 % complete .sorted other trime from eBay, wreckers etc not easy 

I knocked out all the dints  , used a range of sand paper (wet and dry) from 80 grit to 2000 , if any one reading this , be very careful or you will sand all the way through as I did and then you will have to find some more.

then buff and polish on bench grinder preferably on a stand alone stand , obviously use buffing pads etc 

Time and patience, some thing I never used to have , must be getting older.
