    I need a source for the grommets used on my wiper motor. (The ones for the three mount studs) 1965 Barracuda. My last resort would be to use a universal type grommet, but would like to have the OEM grommets.
    Thanks.

    Well, you got me on that one. I'll have to go back and look. I pulled the motor and the arms night before last. I don't remember seeing any metal (bushing) in the grommets. The existing grommets are stiff and brittle. (possible 54 years old.) I put the mount bolts (nuts) back in place, as not to loose them. The bushings may be on them. I'll check. Do you have new ones?

    Just checked...the metal bushings, are still on the mounting studs. They didn't come off when I pulled the motor, lending to, they are probably stuck on there. So I'll probably need them also.

    I will get some out tomorrow and post pictures to compare to make sure we are looking at the same style rubber. All my parts are mostly 67-73

      Here are picture of two speed gromets. The rubber goes in the hole on the motor. The the sleeve slides into it from the outside. Round part of bushing pushes through. flat side out. Variable speed have different style.
