From the picture below, can the plastic gear inside the housing be removed without major effort? I want to remove any old grease the may be underneath, but I can't do a nice job with it installed. Do I need to remove the pivot arm that is underneath on which it is attached to? Or should I just leave it be, blast it with brake cleaner and then repack?

You have to wiggle the arm off, then the wiper gear slides out.

BEFORE wiggling the arm off, make sure you know which way exactly on the splines it is installed, as that determines where the wipers park, and og they park on the right. Perhaps a dab of nail polish so you can line it up later?
You don't want them to park in the middle. Confused

I have re-installed the splined arm by trial and error to fix the parking location. It is easier to do before installation in the bus.

Also make sure you don't lose the little cone piece of metal that the adjustment for the wiper motors sets on, or the wipers will be louder. It gets lost in the old grease.

Whew, I'm glad you said that. From an earlier search before I posted this thread, somebody (I think it was you) else mentioned that cone piece. I went back and looked on the napkin where I smeared the removed grease and on the floor where I disassembled the wiper assembly, no luck. I then took a peek into where the plastic gear is and noticed a blob of grease and found it there. I posted some photos for future reference. I'm guessing that cone piece is placed on the end of the armature shaft. Is that correct? Thanks for the help!

Ya, that's it. you fit it in the housing before sliding the armature in.
The armature slops around w/o it and so the motor is noisier.
Guess how I know? Embarassed Laughing

can't you just reindex the wiper arms on the wiper shafts to do this?

Yes. Yes it is. Moving just the wipers would change the arc of sweep.

I found this thread looking for wiper info. I too removed the mechanism from the motor without marking it.
I cleaned out old grease and reassembled motor. Motor works well at high and low and then I switch to self parking pin 54d to let the motor park. I am going to check the position of the assembly on my other 67' and attempt to line up the splines in the same way.
