Hello just picked up a 1985 Rotus with a Toyota engine, need some love but seems to run ok. Is missing the wiper motor, anyone know which one should be used? My guess is an MGB year? Also any info about wiring one of these, quite a mess there and one last thing as I will have to go through CT inspection need a e brake, have the handle but nothing else, any info on that would be great Thanks

wipers MGB's use a 3 post system (they have 3 wiper arms ).

wiring if your rewiring the car they offer generic wiring harness kits . we have used many types doing many cars over the years .
they are offered in different numbers of circuits you can just match the number of circuits you need to for your car .

E-brake is your car using the 79 to 81 rear supra brakes ?
is all you need for them to be working again is the cables ?

I think that has the Lucas cable drive wiper system. ...
Which will, depending on the year of the wiper motor, be either a single or a two speed motor (both) with parking circuit.
I gotta run but if no one else posts up a wiring diagram I'll post one tonight.
Really easy wiring, a ground, a constant hot (for the parking circuit) and either a single switched hot (one speed) or two separately switched hots (two speed).
Most important is to make sure that everything is lubed and moving freely.
