MC-9 1979 - A work in progress

« on: December 30, 2012, 07:42:59 AM »

Hey - I'm absolutely certain this is a stupid question, so feel free to flame me for asking.. but...

I need to replace my windshield wipers on my MCI MC-9 ( 1979 ) bus project.   The motor, arms - everything seems fine - but the wiper blades themselves don't even touch the glass anymore.  Anyone know a part or model number and a source for replacement blades only? 

Tim

Call MCI. Their prices are often quite reasonable.

Or Luke at US Coach: 1-888-262-2434.

Don't know if they are the same as my 5A, but take yours into Napa and ask for 60-1805 blades and compare them to yours.

I took my old one to NAPA, MCI 7, and they had them in stock. My blades are held on with a small, very small, nut and bolt.
Less than the price for wiper blades on my Dodge truck.

Being a newbie, I don't get a chance to help much yet but I think I can on this one. My MC-7 takes 20" Anco blades #57-10. They attach with a small pin, the new blades have a small screw and nut to replace the pin.

According to the web, the Anco 5710 20" blade crosses to a MCI #03057010, they are about $10 per blade.

Your wiper arms should be held against the windshield via spring pressure.

Your wiper arms will spring back against the glass if pulled away?

happy coaching!
