Wind shield wiper arm help

I am having trouble identifying the correct wiper arm part number for the wipers on my Californian 34 LRC.

They are stamped Anco and the spline on the motor measures slightly over 1/2 inch at about .540 thousandths.

They are adjustable in length from about 10 to 14 inches.

There is a metal clip that holds them onto a spline and no set screw of any kind.

Anco makes a few models that look like these but none of the sites I can find give enough information to determine which one I need. The missing information is on the spline size and attachment method. Seems as though some are 1/4, 1/2 and 5/8 spline and some seem to have set screws which mine do not.

The motors are Bosh made in the USA but the model numbers are not legible.

I still have one of these and I am giving up on them. Have replaced two of them and will replace the third and last this year. Gone/going to Ongaro arms which have, to me , a superior spline system with a clamp screw.
I grease all, the spline, the screws as I assemble. Otherwise corrosion will freeze the arm to the spindle spline.

I found the Anco hard to locate in the last few years.

i think what you have is the common 1/2 nominal. Your motor is likely the American Bosch, model WWF, which is what I too have.

C lectric, thanks for the reply. I contemplated changing out everything but it is not often I have to use them (of course it is nice to have when you do need them).

So the Ongaro worked with your bosh? Do you know the model you used?

Finally remembered.
The Ongaro blades I used are 14" P/N 33014 The blades came with adapters for different types of arm ends.

I used 1 each of the following arms, both are 'J' hook :
33650
33660.

The 33650 is a J hook but the end is straight so the blade is inline with the arm.

I now know I should have simply bought two of the 650 as the angle adjustment was not really of use for me. Also that feature added a problematic extra bit of length to the arm. I won't change it but mention it so you are aware. Your windows may be slightly larger and maybe the angle adjustment would be of use.

The 660 I have had now for two years.
The 650 was installed last summer, so one year.
My intention is to do the centre window this year. It has lasted because it gets the least use and I still have a spare arm and blade. Regardless I will change it this year.

Hope this helps

Just so you know, The American Bosch wipers are now known as
United Technologies. Have been for quite a few years now, more than 10.
