    Im looking into using a wipermotor to make a rocking chair, but I dont know what motor to get (make, model)
    I have been using this site www.scary-terry.com which is helpfull.
    I would like to go to an autoparts store to purchase it.
    I noticed monster guts sells this product as well but beinig in canada I dont want to pay the increased price.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    It does not really matter what kind you get, tell them you have a dodge pickup year 2008- (not important I just made that up) It shouldnt cost more than $40 for the motor.
    The way auto parts stores are set up now its easier to ask for a wiper motor for a _________ as opposed to part # whatever.
    Let me know how you do.

    So I just got my wiper motor from an auto parts store, and there are more wires then i thought. Which ones do I plug into my power supply? and what do I do with the rest of them?

    A newbie prop builder...

    Any idea what make/model/year vehicle the wiper motor came from? If you can identify that I can probably find a schematic.

    The schematic shows two connectors with three pins each - one connector goes directly to the double-wound motor and one goes to the "park" switch.
    The motor wires should be BLACK chassis ground, DARK BLUE or DARK BLUE/ORANGE high speed winding (12VDC) and WHITE low speed winding (also 12VDC).
    To make the motor turn ground the solid BLACK and connect either the DARK BLUE (BLUE/ORANGE) or the WHITE wire to 12VDC. Do not connect both of these wires to 12VDC at the same time. Choose one or the other based on whether you want fast or slow speed.
    The other connector should have a BLACK, BLACK/PINK and RED wires in it and was used for the park switch that makes the motor stop in a consistent position. Could be used for some interesting stuff but most people just power the motor directly.
    Let me know if these are the wire colors you have.
