There is an assembly on motor to hook up your linkage. You can use stock linkage and wiper towers. New bushings are also included for linkage arms. The brackets supplied may not be needed. Be sure to install brace.

This wiper conversion kit comes as shown in the photo. If you have a complete vacuum operated wiper set up on your car what this basically does is mount in place of the vacuum components and you will reuse your original transmission, arms, and thru the cowl spindles that your original wiper arms attach. Sorry I do not have any other pictures of this kit.

You may be able to bolt motor directly to old wiper motor mount. I tried to use brackets and would not mount properly. I mounted to old mount. Be sure to run brace to the vent mount. That is where radio would have been braced. Makes installation secure.

These electric wiper conversions bolt to the stock wiper brackets and if you do not have the original brackets there will be no way to securely mount the assembly. You will need to search aftermarket suppliers for the original brackets or used ones from web ads or local salvage yards. Other than that fabrication on the installers part will be required. The kit also requires the stock transmission arms for correct operation.
