Re: capri wipers
My "Dash Control Centre" is still in progress and dont intend to touch the wipers beneath Dash other than Lubrication, as theyre working fine and are not likely to ever see rain !
Tossing up whether to leave radio out all together, or have an old non goer just sitting in the hole , or fit this beautiful ALLOY CASE "Ferris" Australia full of AWA Australia brand internals that I picked up at agarage sale for $10 as non-goer! ........ Power was lighting up face, but no other signs of life! .... Carefully opened her up, hoping it wouldnt be something like a Capacitor or Transistor which I know very little of. BINGO !
Turns out the "Clutch Plate" in the Push-button Pre-Select Device and Tuner Mechanism was 100% slipping, so couldnt move to a "station"
After experimenting with various materials with no luck, I made 2 circles out of emery paper and glued them back to back and installed. Works like new ! So satisfying to save a piece of Aussie History esp when you dont know much about Radios!
Sorry for change of subject going from my WIPERS to Radio
