Default Pantograph wiper arms and wipers

Hi all,

My wipers are in need of changing. The knurls on the wiper socket part have flattened and the arms free play on the shafts on both sides....worse on passenger less on driver side, will not tighten anymore.

The shafts still have good knurls on the motor and linkage end both sides.

So....where can I buy a pair of wiper arms and correct length wipers to make the change ?

Any sources ?
Thanks

Unity School Bus Parts.
Clinton Township, Mi.

Give them a call. Can't remember who I spoke with but had all we needed in stock.
Had to buy a pkg of 10 pcs knurled drives but those were not expensive.

Thank you. Went on their website and they show quite a few part numbers that are different for the same length. What fits our PTs ?



My brother in law has a '90 36SP that he bought without wipers on the bus. He needs a set as well...wondering if anybody knows what size and part number is needed for the SP.

Iā€™m thinking that the old part number would be a Federal Mogul, spl, which is an Annco number, a lot of owners have traded out the old heavy duty arms and blades for the light weight that can accept Tri-Co blades, they cost a lot less.

OK....that would be interesting....what arms fit as a retrofit that would take the new gen blades ? Still pantograph or single arm ? Do you have any links ?

Give this a read and see if it makes any sense. I upgrade mine to the new stuff with the fold-down arms and all that jazz.

The Dyna arms are nice....I think I am going in that direction. Thank you.
The 24" arms from the School Bus supplier are $40 a piece. The Dyna arms that take the new gen wiper blades can be had for $50/ea free shipping on ebay....makes sense to upgrade.
