The main difference I see is $200!  Seriously, though, I would find out who
actually makes the unit (most are made by Newport Engineering, CT?) & on the
AD trucks, the stock mounting bracket is in the way of the choke cable.
Newport will retrofit this for free; just send them the motor assembly.

The only other difference (if it even matters to you) might be the number of
speeds & intermittent capability.

> Hi Everyone,

replaced. $110 for glass and installation, I decided that was worth my not
having to be frustrated.

electric replacement motors in various parts catalogs for $150. They "seem"
to be complete, but I also see other systems advertised in other catalogs
for $350. Anyone know the difference between these or advantages of one over
the other? What are some of the choices have you all made? I don't need
super high performance wipers, I just need to see!
