For sale API wiper motors

Ocean:

**When you say the shafts are too small, do you mean too short? *Can you tell me how long the shafts are so I can check my own boat for the application (is that the 1.5" you mentioned in the ad). *We're interested.

Yes I meant the shaft is too short. They are 1.5 inches long, as described on the marico web site

For sale API wiper motors

Thanks, Bert. I'm not able to check right now, but when I get back from a trip to the Gulf Coast, I'll get up in the pilothouse and choose a mounting area, then check for the shaft length I need. It would be a new installation and part of a general pilothouse upgrading project. *The question about the shaft length was mostly because in the photos, it does look a bit more than 1.5" to me, but also gives a good reference now to the size of the whole unit.

re: For Sale API Wiper Motors

I measured the wipers after your last comment that the shaft looks longer than statedI think you are right 2 more photos are attached showing a tape [ruler] it depends where the measurment is taken you should be able to see that* the length varies from 2.5 t0 3 inches. I don't know where the correct measurment should be taken.

Sorry for the confusion

re: For Sale API Wiper Motors

Hmmm, I'm glad you sent these other photos.......makes a big difference. It seems that in positioning the motors, one could just space it out a bit with a teak or star board block if one needed to. The motors themselves look nautical, and would probably be nice to simply leave exposed. Since these motors would be mounted at the top, rather than the bottom of my windshield, I can't remember how much space is there above the windshield frame. Common sense would say that any part of the shaft that turns would have to be outside. I'm guessing that means from the inside of the serrated nut to the end of the shaft because the 1.5" that they refer to as the mounting length looks like the section from the flat mounting base of the motor casing to the inside of the serrated nut. I'll be back at the boat later today.

re: For Sale API Wiper Motors

OK, Ocean: After trying to turn a template of the mounting base every way that I can, I am not able to place the unit in such a way that a contour of in my windshield frame area doesn't interfere with the shaft length. I would be able to use the 1.5" shaft if I could mount it flush, but no angle works. There is a false drop-type ceiling cover that hides the cables to overhead devices, and although I can cut some reasonable access ports so the motor can extend into that area, there is a contour above the windshield that pulls the shaft to an unusable angle. I've spent a lot of time trying to figure it out, but the only thing I can think of is to re-contour the frame in that area, perhaps weakening the frame mount. Still thinking about it, but didn't want to leave you hanging.

Hi
I am not sure how far the sweep is and rather than lead you astray I suggest that you check on the Mfg site
As previously stated they are new ,I have never used them.
I understand that most wipers can be adjusted for different positions
