[Lumps!] Wiper motor replacement parts for 86 VDP

Does anyone know where I can locate replacement parts for an
86 VDP wiper motor? Specifically, I’m looking for the
brushes. I have power to them but the motor doesn’t run.
The windings look good on the armature so I’m not sure what
else it could be. Also, anyone know where I could find a
replacement (rebuilt) in the US? thanks–

Thank you Carl. I’ve bookmarked the web site. Always good
to have sources for replacement parts. Very much appreciated.

I was able to solve my problem. Seems the motor was worked
on before and was reassembled without the thrust bearing on
the end of the armature yoke. I thought maybe I’d dropped
it when I pulled it apart but the felt was worn and I was
working in a clean space. I was able to add the bearing and
viola, problem solved.

Thanks again.–
