MG TD TF 1500 - DR-2 Wiper Motor

Well I rebuilt the DR-2 (single speed) wiper motor and it is now mounted in the TF. By modifying the gear box mounts and drilling and taping the motor body to except studs for mounting it as the original was mounted, it looks good and works perfect. I was a little disappointed when I found out it was a single speed, but after thinking about it, it worked out better as no wiring had to be changed and is switched on and of as the crt motor. No modifications had to be made to the cable assembly, it fit as if it was made for it. The 1 inch stroke of this motor matches the original perfectly. The wipers work very well on a dry screen, amazing! PJ

I have other photos, but you get the idea with the last two. PJ

Good move - it looks a fair bit closer to the original than a 14W motor.

Good job, Paul. Good decision vs. DR-1, IMHO. Bud

Thanks Dave, Bud. Here's what it looked like when I bought it for 35 bucks. Found out the insides were like new, only a spring for holding the brushes was broken. Grease was like tar. Probably have 45 bucks in it. PJ
