Sorry I forgot to say that if you do it, be careful with the super glue and you will be able to keep the wiper logo inside the chrome trim.[looks trick]I spilt glue on mine and wiped the logo off.

With that wiper switch. Its the same as mine. What I did was get an old perished knob and remove the chrome trim off it .Then I ground the after market switch knob down to fit inside the chrome trim with some super glue. This makes the new switch look original only difference is the washer works when you push on it. Just an idea if you want to try it.
Good Idea, Do you have a photo? I am happy with the knob and don't think it look too out of place, although an original looking knob sounds better.

You really really should think before writing.  Cheesy

Is the knob in front of the wheel or behind it?

Is that the Cole Hersee switch Nes, I tried using a Hr one, the park worked but it shorted out in the dash as it is a negative setup, the one i got from the local auto sparky won't park so i ended up sending away for the Cole Hersee 75228-03 switch as Brett said on his post, should be here soon so i'll find out if that works or not.

NFI mate. Actually I never thought of checking to see if it parked. I don't remember hearing a delay in the motor stopping which would indicate that.

Although I am waiting on a magical peice of metal from Pete  Tongue that would allow me to connect the arms to the motor.....

Brett is correct . You will find most of the early wiper motors including the holden [delco ,preslite] switch the earth. That is why they have a copper or brass earth strap from the motor to the firewall. The dash switch simply switches the earth when the parking plate inside the motor cannot earth because the wipers are at the end of their stroke. Your best option is to get a late model aftermarket switch[ EZ wiring or similar] ,looks like the one I used ,modify the knob and fit the holden bezel around it ,use Bretts wiring diagram on the commodore motor [I used a Datsun preslite motor .A lot of the jap stuff assembled in Australia in the 80's used similar motor] and it will have 2 speeds and park . Like I said before I'm using commodore harnesses in both hotrods and might be able to help with some of these questions.

Just thought 54 chev has the same speedo and similar guages to the fc was wondering if a wiper switch looked the same as the fc

the switch looks the same as what everyone else is using.

Brett is it correct to think that H.E.L.P. is high, low [speeds] earth and park.The W is the washer and the B is the power? I'm sure that the way I did mine. Been a few years though.

It's been a while since I have had an update as I have been working - alot. Anyway whilst wiring I tried to turn the engine over and got nothing. I realised the relay under the dash was clicking butt he relay in the engine bay was not forwarding the signal to the starter motor. Turns out the security was overriding it and so I need to go and get the PCM matched to the BCM so it'll run. That's a little way off but I have been self teaching the programming side of the VT series stuff and soon should be able to reset air bags and warnings etc.
SO - at the moment the final engine fit (before removal and bay paint) it turns and I at least know I have wired (Most) of it in properly).  Standard power already modded to match that of standard HSV in same model too hence the Engine covers. They are in pretty crap condition so I have no hesitation in colour matching it to the red on the car.
Oh and I have one power window fitted (really cheap) but you will never guess what car I used for the motor part. Fits really well too!
