Where would it say Rochester or New York? No evidence of it being repainted, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't.
The stamping is on the same side of the motor casing as the remains of the silver sticker in one of your pictures above. I can make out some of it, but not all. Not hard and fast, but observations so far in the limited number of data points in the wiper motor date code thread indicate that the casing changed from having 'Rochester NY' to 'Dayton, Ohio' around the same time the assembly part number stamping stopped appearing on the end.

Delco on the side. Good thing for cameras. I couldn't see anything with my eyes.

Well if it's a replacement, that explains why the nozzles and hoses were removed. And I can stop thinking that maybe I have the solenoid in the leftover parts I still have from the purchase, when I never really did.

For comparison here's the wiper motor I got off of a low mileage 69  RS Z/28, 11A build:

So if it's a replacement, whoever replaced it got one without the solenoid because it was less expensive?

Possibly, or it may not have been a deliberate decision - maybe just got a standard (non-RS or CE1) wiper motor, interchange with 5045572 instead of 5045605 and found nothing to hook the headlamp washers up to.

Or maybe they didn't like the feature and just eliminated it. Every time the washer fluid button it is depressed, it does the windshield and the headlamps, correct? So if the lights aren't on, it's washing the covers?

Thats funny Jimmy. So you had to pre plan if you were going to clean the windshield, by turning on the headlights first?

I always felt it was kind of a gimmick anyway.

I think that's right. Wasn't there a tag hanging from the switch on the new vehicles that explained how it worked? Surely, someone has a pic of that tag?
