I was surprised too at size of the tires.
Aftermarket no doubt.

14 inch wheels? That's new for an Oz car.

Hugh,
I'm not a fan of this moke. 14" wheels.  Apparently this model has some bits that were sourced for it's 2 year production that are damn hard to locate, hence me rebuilding the motor assembly.  It surely would have been cheaper to just swap it for a working unit, but they're not out there.

Same with the fuel sender which I've resolved to modify another one to make it work. Again, wasted time spent to get the float working right. But that's what these cars are about. 

It's why we love them, because we can actually repair the bits if need be. 

I might rewind the rheostat  on the fuel gauge because I've been made aware that the sender I have has a different top plate.

And I've driven this car with the side curtains. I hate them.

But does anyone really need a wiper on a Moke? Oh, I forgot that all the Mokes except little wheel Mokes have creature comforts like side curtains and heaters. Might as well drive a sedan!

that's it.  I got mine working after about 10 hours of checking this and that. Loose magnets binding armature, missing a spring on the end of the motor shaft, overheated armature, etc.  Still on the bench for final assmebly/ greasing. Next up, I'll see if it actually has enough umph to drive the wipers.

That is the motor fitted to the last Oz (81 onwards) Moke. It fits on the outside of the wiper arm cover. KJ in Oz

Fitted to a Californian Moke,  It's smaller than the MK 1 DR2/DR3 wiper motor but similar square in shape of the motor body.  Again, I can't figure out how to get a picture of the motor up here.  I'll em it to someone if they can post it here for me.

This is a two speed motor apparently from Australia.  It's got a rectangular 6 pin plug with 5 leads.

Any help would be appreciated.
