1979 Ford CLT-9000 Windshield Wipers
« on: December 29, 2019, 05:35:16 PM »
The air operated windshield wipers on my cabover are giving me trouble. Even with the tanks at full psi they won't go all the way to the end of the windshield to return back to the center. The passenger side one worked fully briefly today, but other than that no joy. If I nudge the wipers to the end, they return on their own and start another loop, but they still won't go all the way to the end. Is it possible there's an air leak, or they just need loosened with something? They make an awful loud hissing noise, like air escaping a hole in a tire, or a pressurized air line, and I don't think that's normal. I've got a video if anyone needs to see it.
If I haven't found it, I will. Believe me, no truck is safe from my eyes, Large or scaled.

My wild guess would be to track the air leak source and plug it you can, see what happens. Add water to the windshield when you run the wipers too as it helps, dry glass and rubber drag quite a bit.
