EK Electric wiper mounting seal

Post by Gonedaddy »

Hi all,

I'm putting an EK (Delco) electric wiper into my FB, but unfortunately it's missing the rubber mounting seal. Does anybody have a source for a replacement, or a hack to make their own? I can get 6mm rubber from Clark Rubber but thought I'd ask before going down that route.

Cheers
Tim

Hi Tim,
I think you are on the right track with some 1/4” rubber sheet, unless anyone has one from a blown motor. Pete Mallaby on the FE FC site may be an option. I got a conversion kit for a later motor from him a while ago, which includes a fabricated mounting plate. I will have a look and see what he did for the rubber. I’ve got other rubber bits from him previously which he makes up on a water jet machine.
Cheers,
Clay

This is what Pete suppliesImage
It is more like 4mm than 6mm.

G'day Clay, thanks for the reply.

After a bit more digging I managed to find one from an Ebay seller (earlybitz1).

Surprised that Rare Spares don't have one in their catalogue.

Cheers
Tim

When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

Haha, I was kinda worried when he said he had one, but it was $30. I've been after one for a while and compared to how much the other wiper parts have cost me I didn't flinch too much.

That’s not bad in todays world as long as it’s serviceable.
