Hi All

I have a mk1 mini - but am missing a wiper motor!! Where is the best place to find one - are they all the same / is there a part number I should be looking for?

All help gratefully welcomed!

Thanks

How bothered are you about originality? GEU7714 is the part number - appears to be NLA new so you'd have to take a hit on the surcharge, or you could convert to the later pattern.

The manufactured date is stamped on the wiper motor case, if that helps.

Just to give you the heads up, these were also fitted to early MG Midgets / Sprites and have the same part number. They are available new, but do not have any gears. They are also on an exchange basis too - so no good on that !

 

It will help in searches if you use words such as Mini - Midget early wiper motor, not just Mini. They were used on 948, 1098 Midgets and some early 1275cc models. Just might help with your searching if you have more information on applications

Early cars used a Lucas DR2A but this changed to a DR3A in 1962. The most common DR3A motor to find on a Mk1 is numbered 75461A but there were others over the years and a few are listed below. You could find motors with virtually any number on the cover supplied via the Lucas B90 refurbished parts scheme (Which were generally in black crackle finish) but the crucial thing is to get the right sweep angle which is stamped on the gear wheel inside when you take the cover off. Many S/H examples out there are from Morris Minor's which have a 150° sweep so be wary. The angle used on Mini's is much less than this but apparently changed from 130° to 120° in late 1962 / early 1963 so clearly 75461A's would appear to come with both depending on date. Both will work but you will just clear more of the scuttle with a 130° example when it gets worn.... :) Later motors had a self park switch. A couple of examples of the cover plate ID attached.

1959 75380 DR2 (Maybe export?)
1959 75315D DR2
1960 75385A DR2
1960-61 75385B DR2
1961-62 75585B/D DR2
1962-65 75461A DR3A
1965-66 75541A DR3A
1967 75541B DR3A
1968 75456D DR3A

Later Mk2's and MK 3's etc. were then type 14W.
