Default 1936 Trico Wiper Rebuild Kit Needed

Anyone know what the model or part number is for the '36 wiper? It looks original.
I searched MAC and could only find one for the Model A. I need more information as to what to search for.

If you are speaking of Ficken, use only as a last resort, he is the most miserable human being I have ever dealt with !!

I bought a regulator for my roadster from him. Very nice piece.

He does and I have brought a couple from him which are ok . Just watch some times what they are advertised as is not what they are -For example 34 Studebaker wipers look like 34 ford wipers but have slight differences and don't fit as well.

I have approached Rob Ficken about restoring wipers and his response to me has always been the same -They will be replacement wipers and the pot metal castings will have warped and they can't be restored don't send them to me.!! Not particulary helpful but honest.

I wondered about how he had some things were labeled.
Once I'd seen 1935 Roaster wiper motor from him advertised that didn't have the heart shape. It was oval.
I never buy anything in question from anyone without asking questions and or other photo's.
Thanks for the tip.
