Thanks Bill.  That makes a lot more sense.

Dogscarf, if you don't find the correct square motor for your '65 there is a conversion kit sold by our host.  From the picture in the item listing you would still need the round wiper motor, a later car's wheelboxes, rack, and rack tubes but you are much more likely to find those at a decent price than the Mk1 parts.

Bill...44 GBP?  For the wheelboxes, tubes, rack and motor?  Being a '65 the original motor would be the square one which is quite expensive just by itself.

Fellow Minioids,  I am looking for a wiper assembly for my 1965 Austin Mini Cooper that I am restoring.  The threads on the wheel boxes are stripped and I used the motor on another Mini.  So, motor and the tube and wheel boxes.
