1948-52 Ford F-1 trucks

1948-52 Ford F-1 trucks

Pacific Western Design is introducing a modern RainGear lever and link electric windshield wiper system for 1948 to 1952 Ford F-1 pickups.  It provides a direct mechanical link from the powerful 12 volt motor to the wipers, replacing the old tired vacuum motor and linkage. The result is a much more dependable and positive system.

The modern F-1 RainGear Kit installs under the dash and is designed with simple, built-in, adjustments.  The new wiper pivot shaft installs in the original position and uses your original or reproduction escutcheons to maintain the stock look.  The F-1 RainGear kit includes a 2-speed Wiper/Washer switch or an optional 2-speed Wiper/Washer/Intermittent switch.

If you're looking for a modern, dependable wiper system for your F-1, this is it.

The RainGear system will fit all 1948 to 1952 Ford F-1 trucks with the following exception:

Cross-mount master cylinders likely won't fit with our RainGear system installed.  Original radio will not clear the system.

The kit comes complete less assembly lube, arms and blades, escutcheons and model-specific knobs for the switch.  All those stock pieces will fit on our system.  Escutcheons are the exterior trim bezels which cover the pivot posts in the cowl.

Please note that the RainGear unit cannot be controlled by any General Motors column-mounted wiper switches.  You must use the included switch.  This is due to the fact that GM switches control the wiper motor via the ground wire and our systems must be controlled by switching the positive wire.
