Windshield wiper arm springs?

Mine are rusted badly and broken.

This link describes the spring. Does anyone have a source idea for a spring?

https://lordnibbo.wordpress.com/2011...-on-nauticats/



And how about a new wiper arm? I can use another. I am adding a center window wiper. The two I have are SS and have ANCO on them. They fit on a motor with a large ridge cylinder barrel and no nut, exactly look like this picture.

Hardware stores and auto parts stores should have a selection of springs.


Auto parts stores may be able to match up your arms. West marine sells some arms as well.

Greetings,
Mr. 717. Spend the $40 or so for new arms as Mr. b. suggests.

Posting links, I found out what I have for arms, Anco 4102, a 5mm bayonet style arm.
The Anco 4103 is longer with a 7 mm bayonet style arm. Amazon has these under $20.


Find My Wiper Blade
click Deadlocker, click flatwindshield, click 5 mm bayonet to view the classic style blades.
Anco 2011 or Anco 2012 are the SS wiper blades.

Bosch is 40711, Bosch calls a 5mm adapter a J1 attachment.

Trico Classic here uses 5mm bayonet, so will work.
TRICO Classic 33-122 - Wiper Blade | O'Reilly Auto Parts

Trico Classic here a 15" blade uses the 7 mm bayonet which is too big.

I found an adapter to take 7 mm bayonet to hook attached wipers.

It is likely this could be epoxied to the end of a 5 mm bayonet arm.

Chart of various adapter ends for Anco and shows the 5mm adapter I think is 47-91 included in the 31 series wipers
http://www.rockauto.com/info/Anco/31series.pdf

47-91 is the 5mm shim
http://www.rockauto.com/en/parts/anc...+adapter,10670

So I could get a 14 inch blade instead of an 11 " blade, Anco 31-14

My old blades are 14" long
So I bought one new arm Anco 4102 and 4 new blades Anco 3114 from Rock Auto for $30 total with shipping.

From that first link, replacement Vespa exhaust springs are 60 mm long.

So here are a pair of 60 mm springs stainless steel that I may buy for $7.95

Or 57 mm which might be too tight.

Success.
Repaired it all for $38 included shipping from Rock Auto and Amazon and I had ordered 4 wipers.

Those springs are 1/2 inch too short. I had some 308 welding rod I bent in to C shape. The C clips need to be 1/2 to 9/16 inch long from inner edge to inner edge. Then bend down the springs end onto the C clip.

The Anco 3114 blades fit perfectly with the adapters.
Put shim on the 5mm bayonet, then slip the hook down and it is a tight fit.
I think having the hook adapter I could now use beam blades.

Anco 4102 also includes a motor hub adaptor to go from bolt on blades that have a nut on top.

On the new wiper arm, I will likely need to drill and tap for a set screw to secure the arm to the wiper motor..
