I have one problem on my newly restored 73. The wiper auto park wants to stop the wipers on the wrong end of the swing. They auto park high on the windshield right in your view. It's next to impossible to manually stop them before the auto park engages. Moving the arms on the splined shaft doesn't work because then they end up indexed on the wrong end of the swing. I disassembled the motor today but can't figure anything I can change. The motor was in a parts box when I bought the car. I don't even know if it's original for the car as it didn't have a terminal for the ground wire. I ended up carefully drilling and tapping a hole for a screw so I could use a small ring terminal. Anyone have any thoughts on correcting this?

Not having a ground is a good indication that you have some incorrect parts on the motor. The tab for the ground should also provide a ground for the park switch. The park switch will not work right without the proper ground tab.
