The Asmo windshield wiper arm (specifically the fitting that attaches the main arm and spring to the motor shaft) on my 1989 trawler has corroded to failure. Asmo just makes electric propulsion motors now - I figure that part of the business is either kaput or sold to another manufacturer.

There are plenty of wiper manufacturers (Ongaro, AFI, TMC, American Bosch, Exalto, others), but the motor is fine and I would rather repair than replace. If all else fails, I will fabricate the part from an aluminum billet.

Has anyone been here - know of a source or which manufacturer might have replacements that would work?
