More from Dr. Cyclone

It doesn’t take much to get Dr. Cyclone busy making more Cyclone needed new parts; just a little rust. One of his projects, like many of ours, has rust up around the cowl and windshield wiper motor. If you do, you also know that the mounting bolts are often difficult to remove and when you try they break off leaving you with no real way to duplicate the factory look.

The good Dr. has again created a solution for you.

Here are some photos of your solution.


Here is an original and the Dr’s new replacement part for the windshield wiper motor mount doubler.
Here is another angle of the wiper mounting plate.
The insert on the left is pressed into the original doubler underneath the wiper motor . This is what ends up having a bolt broke off in it and you cannot access it. The one on the right is Dr. Cyclone’s replacement insert that fits into the new doubler for the windshield wiper motor and this will solve any issues with the rust or broken bolts.

This is the rest of what you need to complete the job.

This is the original inside piece.


Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
