2 speed but as you might know on high it is still slow and living in the south with the rains we get it needs to be a bit faster.
saying that i know i will have to install new grouments as well.

I am not sure there is a physical solution that is easy. Like installing a faster motor or????
You, also my have worn joints in the wiper transmission.

I do have a cheaper and easier solution for that issue that involves none of the wipers.
Rain X or the equivalent
Amazon.com: Rain-X Original Windshield Treatment Glass Water Repellent (2) : Automotive
It is a glass coating that makes all water bead up and roll off.
If the vehicle is moving the water blows off.
If the glass has never been treated before, a couple of coats may be necessary for full effect.

The stuff is cheap and easy a rare combo in the auto world. Can be found in Walmart or any automotive store.
Rain X has gotten into other areas that are glass related. Get the original stuff.

I have this on my vehicles and much of the time I don't even need to turn the wipers on when it is raining. I usually recoat annually. Just did this on three daily drivers last weekend.

And as a post script, you might remove the wiper transmission and give it a bit of a cleaning.
That may have some benefit as well.

The side windshield frame pr post is called an "Ä" pillar.
As along the side of the car above there are 3. An A pillar, B pillar and a C pillar

You are looking to sell the inside A pillar cover

All Falcon body styles should be the same for the A pillar.
Not likely Mustang and Falcon are interchangeable.
There was a pair of chrome Mustang covers that sold for $300 + or -

The outside A pillar trim was the same for 67 to 70

I made this cupholder from some .060 aluminum and painted it with Hammerite rattlecan. It attaches to a couple of the screws holding the shifter trim. I have full size patterns if anyone is interested.
