    Since I have my instrument cluster out, I was looking at lubricating my wiper linkage. Is Lubriplate a good choice? Thanks

      I have been using synthetic disc brake caliper grease on any parts that moves spin or slides on my cars with great success. It won't attack plastic or rubber, has PTFE, moly and graphite mixed in. It also has superior anti-washout, temperature range and persistence to traditional lubricants.

          Pre 1968 linkage has bronze bushings throughout. I've seen some that were severely worn. In most cases linkage binding is in the wiper pivots. Similar short bronze bushings in both ends of those no matter which model/type linkage you have. You'll have to take them down, drill holes, and add zerks to grease them. Pivot seal kits include the zerks.
          Pivots are held with 2 bolts so they can be flipped 180 degrees at reinstall. This puts the angular wear on less worn bushing walls. Just mark the bottom with a sharpie before you take them down. Rotate the marks to the top. They should run smoother and quieter.
