Things are really hot and dry here. I saw a groundhog sneaking around and drinking water out of the chicken feeder and then it was eating the scratch grain. It was 94* in the barn semi-shaded. View attachment 873961 View attachment 873962 I worked on my Honda tractor. This is a well-built machine that has served me well for the past 30 years. Water cooled 2-cylinder OHC and sounds like a car when running. View attachment 873963The deck was stuffed and packed with grass and the blades need sharpened. I keep an extra set-in stock at all times. View attachment 873964 Not bad for an old tractor. View attachment 873965 I was going to punish myself and run to Lowes for some wood in the M1028 but changed my mind quickly when I remembered no A/C. I drove the Trail Boss. Take Care and Be Safe.
I've repaired a few of them. Far better than the MTD models in design. AYP are a bit better than MTD.

Rick I replaced the Wiper Blade Motor and Cleaned and Lubbed all the moving parts that are under the arms. I also cleaned up the Plugs that go into the Motor.

Before and After Photos:



























The Nut that goes onto the Motor that attaches the Arm piece to the Back of the motor doesn’t go down a very far. I’m assuming that’s because of the gap needed for the Arm Piece to fit. Not sure if that matters? I tightened it as much as I could as well.









Something still isn’t right. Is it maybe the Switch inside attached to the Steering Wheel? Or something else??

This may be a simple as the windshield is not wet and the wipers are squeegeed fast to the smooth wiper plane area of the windshield. Add some water to the glass with a hose and try that. Have someone spray the hose on the glass and you sit inside and run the wipers. Laugh. But give it a try. Wipers aren't designed to run on dry glass. And these older vehicles don't have the most powerful wiper motors like newer vehicles. Try it before you call me wrong. Good Luck.

jplace1011, I have redone my wiper system, including a new motor, adding another ground, new arms, blades etc. My wipers move at the same speed as yours in that video (and they did the same thing on my other 1009 too). I think, like Rick said, the motor just isn't the most powerful in Chevy's lineup. Like the blower motor for the heater (not really all that powerful), I wish there was an upgrade.

I took another look at the Ground Location notes. I thought this was interesting, Remove the Suppressor. I’ll try it out, why not.

Once my wife gets home I’ll also try turning them on with the hose hitting the windshield.

I’ll report back.



I’m assuming this is that Suppressor Plug.

I was out sanding parts for my current build and the trim parts for my next build. I was tired of hand sanding parts and wanted to address the step bars on my Trail Boss. These are Genuine GM stainless steel steps. After 3 years and 8 months they are worn thru. I wouldn't mind but it reflects onto the door and has me doing a double take when I look at it. I removed the cover step and sanded it and painted it with some Krylon Fusion paint. Probably won't be a permanent fix but it will last until I need to spray it again. I am 1 year away from ordering a new truck, so I am happy with the use I got out of it. I was going to put adhesive non-skid on but that get dirty and never comes clean. Line X was another option. I think this will work fine. Not the best idea on GM's part. Oh Well. DSCF8780.JPG DSCF8781.JPG It still looks good after I washed it. You can fix a lot of stuff and keep things nice if you stay proactive on everything. Have a Great Week. DSCF8782.JPG
