Wiper linkage. How tight?

How tight should the mechanism be once assembled? What are the ft lbs for the wiper nut?

Should the wiper linkage be very loose or take some force to move when nothing else is attached?

Weapon,

I think the linkage should move very easily and smoothly when it's all hooked up properly. Mine does.

As for the torque on the wiper nuts, I have no idea. I just snugged them up as tight as I dare without stripping them.

mine is really tight and I cannot figure out why. I guess I will take it apart again and reassemble without the leather washer (temporarly) and see if that make a difference,

You really have to be careful with these nuts. The bigger threat than stripping the threads is breaking the pivot's brittle casting when the nuts start to jam. Happend too me twice lately.

Good idea to oil them once a year. The smell only last for a couple of days.

You might need to take them out and clean them well and oil them again.

when they were in the original remaining metal from the oem (rusted out) frame, they were free and loose. All i did was transfer them to the new aftermarket windshield in the photo and add the oem omix replacement washers. Now very tight.

Perplexed.
