Don't know why you're fussing...

You're faking it anyway ...and the real ones were anywhere from 2 to 6 months from the actual build date....

Cheers, Ian

All I found was an 8 68 from a DR3A (self parking) and a DR2 10 59.  The 66 dated one I had went with the '66 Austin Cooper 'S project I sold in April.

Thank you for replying.  I have found a 2 -66, but still holding out for an April or March.  Its winter here , and all the motors are in storage.  I will get a list.  Is there a date code you need?

Regards,


Jim

Having so many wiper motors, what covers are you offering in trade? Steve (CTR)

Apply for membership on the Mk1-Forum (link below) and post that you want a '66 wiper motor cover.  Be sure to ask for one stamped for the month of your car's manufacture date or earlier (i.e. If your car was built in June'66, you want a June or earlier 1966 cover).  The link below is to the Mk1 website.

I have boxes of wiper motors.  I need a '66 early date coded alloy cover.  Not the motor.  Pre May 1966.

They had "covers" meaning the top part of the wiper motor with the date stamp on it showing the date of manufacture used to authenticate.
I may have one but it is in storage in Lilburn, Georgia and I'm in Utah presently.  Our host does sell them new only $374.95 plus a $100.00 core charge plus shipping and you may need additional parts.  Just as Steve is saying if I'm buying a "genuine" '66 Cooper 'S the wiper motor should be made before the car came off of the assembly line as well as the dated glass and other parts that had a date stamp - trunk lock assembly.

Seems to have been here for a long time since 17 and has a blocked profile and only one post asking for the wiper motor lid with the correct date. Dated parts and it seems all mini parts are, now are becoming a big deal. Maybe I can sell all this glass I have. Steve (CTR)

Hello Gents,

Looking for a 1966 Wiper Box cover.  Needed to complete restoration.
