For what it's worth I had to do an emergency wiper blade rlpacement on my Excursion on our first big trip. I pulled off at the first exit and picked up a set of 24" no-name blades. They hooked right into the clip on the wiper arm and have been there for 4 months. Somewhat shorter than the original 28" blades, but work just fine. Not to mention they were like $15 for the pair. You could just take whatever wiper blade you have to any autozone or whatever and probably find a good match

If you have a 32 inch blade, the part no is 67-321. Just put a set on last month.

Thanks for the information. I have 32" blades and that's exactly what I was looking for.

Wow Rick - you have one fantastic looking rig!!

Mine uses the same blades as yours but I couldn't stomach the price for the extra 3-4" of blade length so I "converted" to a set of 28" blades - details here. I haven't noticed any difference in operation/visibility but I don't drive in rain very often.

I'm currently working to replace a broken 'tapered knurl' on the passenger wiper arm. Probably due to over-tightening.

Ditto on JFNM.
Drill an extra set while you are at it.

How do you repair/replace the tapered knurl? Where can I get the parts?

Hi Scotty,

I haven't actually done it yet... but... I ordered what I think is the correct replacement part from AMEquipment.com (AM Equipment : Tapered Knurl [407-1097] - $3.60).

I have one wiper arm that won't stay fixed on the drive shaft. When I removed it, I found that the tapered knurl was broken in half and just fell out/off. I am hoping that the above replacement part fits and eliminates the "slop" problem with the wiper arm. Possibly worth noting, the arm itself (and the 'knurls' inside it) looks to be undamaged.

Once I have the parts in hand and have tried the repair, I'll report back with the results.

I have the same issue. Luckily it is on the passenger side. I will not have time to repair it before leaving Friday. I'll be interested to hear how this part works out for you.

Hi Scotty,

I received the part - it fit and worked perfectly! My passenger wiper is operational again. Details and more photos here.

I will be forever indebted to you folks. I have been fighting this same problem this week.
I found the Dynamic wiper arms at Grainger. Didn't know about the broken knurled thing until I removed the arm and it fell out in two pieces.
I finally got both arms replaced with an extra set of hands from my wife. Searched the web but found nothing. Called PPL and the gentleman I talked to could not locate them either.
I'm sure you'all saw the same thing I did in that the tapered shaft that this attaches to is what causes these to break. When the nut is tightened it forces the knurled piece onto the larger part of the shaft. This will happen again so I ordered 4.
Again, many thanks for the link to the web site.

Yes, I completely agree. I was thinking of trying to make a large "washer" with a tapered inside hole next time I'm near a friend with a lathe. My thinking is something that will fit snugly on the shaft and take up the bulk of the compression load in hopes of the tapered knurl lasting a long while.

It appears that my tapered knurl is actually part of the shaft and not a bushing like shown in your photos. The sharft is round instead of rectangular and has the knurl mostly worn off. I'm wondering if I have an altogether different manufacturer for my winshield wipers?
