Wiper Motor Bolt Head Markings
« on: August 19, 2015, 09:46:50 AM »
What bolt head markings are considered normative for the 3 wiper motor to firewall fasteners on a LOS-built '69? I've seen Elco, B&H and several others on restored cars, but not sure which would be most correct.
Thanks for any help!

Thanks Chris and Bob - are your cars unrestored?

Tim,

It was unrestored before I started the "frame off" resto.

Tim, I know you are looking for an LA car but here is mine. Original, unrestored and never off as far as I can tell. Original June dated wiper motor that I have a picture of over on your wiper motor thread.
Has the P, 07A Norwood car.

Thanks guys. Probably just like other body fasteners, many different suppliers (like SEMS, RBW, P, L, Anchor etc) and no right or wrong usage. I recall someone saying previously that bolts, screws etc from all suppliers were stored in bins on the line, and whatever the worker pulled out from the appropriate bin, went on the car.

That is my understanding as well
I have seen two bolts attaching pieces on either side of the vehicle that have different head markings (SEMS and anchor) - my only conclusion is when a box of hardware came in, it filled up the bin - didn't matter the manufacture

My 12C LOS built 69 has RBW stamped on the original wiper mounting bolt heads.

Tim, Here are pic of the three bolts on my wiper motor. It's a 12B LA built car. It's a RS unit and has never been off the car.
