    I'll try to save the motor for but if the armature is shot I'm afraid I'm out of luck. The other bummer is I don't have a cover.

    Not yet--I'll probably hear back Monday. He's a good guy though, I trust him. Did a full rebuild on my stock generator for $100. I've got my eyes open for a replacement justin case. Anyone have an extra they might be willing to part with?

    Wayno that's such great into--thank you for sharing your wisdom. Sadly I think my wiper motor has multiple problems. At least three of the wires are cooked and the casing melted. I'm also afraid some of the wires on the armature might be cooked, which would probably mean it's dead dead. It'd be cost prohibitive to have it re-wrapped. When I bought the truck I knew ZERO about 320s--just bought it on a whim 'cause it was a great looking little truck and I like the idea of early Japanese stuff. It was not running when I bought it and didn't have a battery. I came on here and found out they were originally positive ground so I hooked a battery up pos ground and got it running. Sadly someone had converted it to neg ground (even though it has the original generator) and I burnt out the coil. The coil got blistering hot and exploded. I wonder if I might have burnt out part of the wiper motor at the same time. It doesn't have the cover.

    Pulled out my wiper motor that's seized up and has some toasted wires. Does anyone have an extra in OK condition? I took it to the same place that rebuilt my generator and I'm hoping he can get it up and working for a reasonable amount of money. If it's too far gone I'll need a replacement.

    Wayno, if Zorro makes it right and the bumpers are a good match would you sell me a set from you 10 pack?

    Seems like that'd just be a recipe for getting chipped up to shit. I've got the original bed chains and there's def no OG paint on them. They just have a light rust patina. Any suggestions on what to do with the chains for a stock look? Powder coating to match the truck color? Zinc plating? Black chassis paint?

    Here's a random question. Does anyone know what finish the tailgate chains came with from the factory? Zinc plated maybe?

    Great thanks! Can you get a good measurement on the 320 bumpers?

    Thanks for the offer but I'm in Tucson AZ. 1500 miles makes it tough to pick up. 🙂

    I'm back at it... Motor and tranny out, bed off, dash and windshield out. Lights out, trim off... Getting it stripped down for paint. I cracked my windshield a little taking it out but I've got a local glass guy that thinks he can cut me a copy out of a modern windshield.
