    They have those too, but mine work fine and aren't too beat up.

    Okay, while we wait to see what the op comes up with, I have a wiper-related issue myself on my '79. When I got the car, it was obvious that the drivers side wipe was on the splined post in the wrong position as it wouldn't conceal, it sat proud of the hood and swept across the windshield molding. So I pulled the arm off and "re-indexed" it so that the blade sat where it is supposed to, out of sight. I thought was the job done, but with the wipers running, the blade is still touching the edge of the molding, so I'm wondering if the wiper blade is a bit too long? Can anyone measure the actual length of a known to fit.and work blade?

    I’ve got them, haven’t had a chance to pop them on, been away. I’ll be sure to reply if they work or not next week.
