Mk2 Wiper Motor - Wiring colours help please

Post by Slow Smoke Moke » Sat May 16, 2020 17:55

Hi,

1968 Mk2 English Moke

The wiper motor wires have had the plug snipped off so I don't know how the wires correspond to the wiring diagram.

1. Would someone be able to confirm what the below coloured wires correspond to:

Red
Blue (greenish)
Yellow

I believe one is earth, one is to the voltage stabilizer and one to the switch.

2. Is this supposed to be a single or double speed arrangement?
3. Is something missing from it? There appears to be a couple of holes in it. Park switch?

Image attached.

Thanks,

Nick

At a guess I’d say, from what I can make out from the picture, that that’s a motor with some bits missing and the wires bodged together. I’ll have to have a look through the wiper pile tomorrow to be sure though
At least can add up

HI. You should have a Park switch on that.

Power should come from the B terminal of the Flasher unit on a Green cable. A Black Green cable should come from the switch, and Black to earth on the speedo earth point. This came from the Haynes 59' to 69' manual. later moke wiring is similar to the Van & Pickup of the era.

It looks, from your picture, that you have a later round body wiper motor. Like the one in the second picture, the two holes in it are mounting points for the self park mechanism and multi plug. Note how the intermediate wires match up with what you’ve got

The first picture shows what you should have. An earlier, square body type, it has three spade connections on the base that would match up with your loom and three mounting points cast in the case that match the holes below your windscreen
