Jim another good thing about the truck wiper set up is there were millions of them sold,so getting parts will always be easier than comet parts. you can get a rebuilt motor fairly cheap at most any parts house,;

You’d think… a replacement wiper motor for the Comet is available today, the newer one, for a 79 Bronco, will be about a week. Not a big deal since I’m not in a hurry.

Wow... this must be a popular upgrade... there are literally no reman wiper motors (p/n 40-258) available at this time :( . Even Cardone, the supplier is "return and rebuild" only.

Thanks! you just saved me a trip down there.only 3-4 blocks away but I was going to drop in there & order & pay for one today! so I called & she said she wont know until monday if she can get one. guess I already know the answer now. I got a buddy a few miles away with a lot full of old trucks,guess I'll have to go see him.
