    Wiper Motor bracket

    TR3B
    In need of a wiper motor bracket for my TR3B, mine is pitted beyond re-installation.
    I replied in Triumph classifieds but thought I'd post here with some questions.
    Anyone know how to get to the mounting area for the bracket ,next to the Master cylinders, for this item? It looks like fabrication may be the only answer for me so far...
    This project is not in my shop manual.
    The mounting ears had nut keepers and the mounting bolts are accessible but the keepers have faded with time.

    Besides the two screws up top, there is one nut that screws onto a stud on the bracket next to the master cylinders. Access to that nut is from underneath, up by the pedal box.

    Fabrication is probably the best way to go.

    Thank you for the response. The stud is OK, the ears that the two holes in the bracket bolt to, on the car, are in bad shape.
    I may have to fab the bracket also.
    I've seen pics of new or restored brackets here and there but none for sale....

    I guess that you are talking about the two caged nuts that the screws go into. I just put my car up on the lift to take a look. I can see the forward most caged nut under the wheel well. It looks like if you remove the mud guard piece you should be able to access the rearward caged nut. You can replace the caged nuts. They are welded on, but if you can cut them off, you can always pop rivet on new ones. I did that with some of the caged nuts that didn't allow access to weld. Doesn't look like there is such great access underneath...might be better off removing the front wing.

    Did you contact Marv Gruber? I'll bet he's got a pile of them. I'm sure I've got several myself, but not where I can get to them easily.
