Default Vacuum wiper motor Rebuilt Kit?

Who makes the best Rebuild kit for the wiper motor?
Yes I told the customer to use Rain x but for some reason he Has to have a working wiper.
Maybe for state inspection?

I ordered mine from Brattons. Don't know if it is better or worse than any other one but it worked just fine.

The kit contains gaskets and new fabric and rivets for the paddle.
Clean and inspect your paddle, if the fabric is not torn, do not replace it. The original fabric is much better than what comes in the kits. Just clean and install new gaskets if the paddle is OK. Any kind of light grease will work on the paddle, if it runs slow you can thin the grease with one drop of oil and it will run faster.

I bought a kit from Snyder's and from Bratton's. You already know that sometimes they sell the same thing but in this case they were different. On each kit the replacement paddle was crap and since the original was no good I pressed ahead trying to get it to work with the crap paddles. I had no luck with either and ended up sending it to John Norman. Had a I had a good paddle I am sure I could have got it right.

This is the answer I expected. Glad I asked. I will try and use the original paddle. I've had good luck fixing wiper motors before using the original paddle.

A friend told be to squirt some Marvel Mystery oil in the vacuum wiper mechanism to rejuvenate it. The method has worked well for ten years rather than a rebuild.
