Looking For A 1997 Wiper Motor

I need a windshield wiper motor for a 1997 Ford F-53 / Tropi-Cal. Have tried looking at several but they either do not have a splined shaft OR they have the wrong wiring plug. Anyone have any ideas where I can get one or a mod I can make to use the more common ones? Wiper delay in the old one is bad.

Thanks!

Jack

The DENSO part # is Denso Wiper Motor 159100-3220
the F-53 chassis is sold to RV builders without a wiper motor, so it will not be a FORD part

Thank you for that information. Got a question for you. Where is the wiper delay circuit located for this particular Beast, in the motor or is there a separate module. Thanks!

Not sure, but I think it is in the motor.

Just FYI folks. The wiper delay circuitry for 1997 and before Fords seems to be in the Multi-Function switch. Took lots of research but finally got the part number for an OEM product as the aftermarket ones did not have the emergency flasher switch. Also picked up a Denso wiper motor for backup. Having them installed and will follow up with results.
