I've assembled the links and wiper motor with the new bushings. I also put some grease in the bushings. Now when I install it I'm going to try and do it assembled. But the next question is before I put on the wiper arms how can I make sure they pivots will be parked? Do I just run the wipers without the arms for awhile and then turn the switch off and it should be in park? I swapped out the motor under warranty so don't know if it's in park already. We did get it to run a few seconds when we had assembled last week but were still trying to find out why it wasn't coming on so I'm not sure if it got out of the park position.

Please re-read the last part of my previous message where I use a paint pen to draw a line across the top of the wiper arm "turrets" (wiper arms removed) to ensure they return to the "parked" position reliably prior to installing the wiper arms. The motor should find its way once you run it.....
There are a lot of things I just do automatically when I assemble a car ....regrettably I'm not that good at describing how I do stuff.
If you want a real headache when it comes to wiper systems you should try setting up a '61 Chrysler with the variable speed wipers and the vacuum operated co-ordinated wiper wash system...loads of fun!
