Windshield wipers

Hi guys and gals, I finally got around to replacing the windshield wiper bushings. I pulled the whole assembly out and used a vise to put everything back together. I am reasonably certain that I got it all back together right, but now, the motor wants to stop with the wipers straight up, not laying down. It is almost like the motor is reversed. Could I have reassembled the mover bars incorrectly to cause this? Where is the stop control for the motor located, as part of the motor? I didn't mess with anything other than the mechanical part, no electrical. I have a new motor that I didn't install because the old one was still working. I am leaning towards taking it apart and replacing the motor, what think you guys...Mark

Well, Duuuuuuuuu!, I figured it out. I put the arm on the motor 180 out. I like to believe that that is a mistake that any genius could make ...Mark

Hi guys, I am having trouble finding wiper arms for my exact truck. I found some for a 93 b350. Is there a difference? thanks Mark

Yeah those don't look right to me....not sure on the length or what's going on with the area the blade attaches.

Mid 90's f150 worked great on my truck. I think there's a thread or two about it. Rock auto, Napa, Amazon I think all carry them. A bit of massaging their bends, but otherwise a straight swap out with hook ends. No more pins to fail

Per my parts manual the part number for the B series vans is different in my parts manual and the arm has an integrated washer nozzle, but it sure looks similar to the D/W series arm.
B Series
4169583 Arm, w/Nozzle, Wiper
4389063 Blade, Wiper
D/W Series
4389233 Arm, Wiper
4389062 Blade, Wiper
