Item Details for
Wiper Motor - Bombardier Nose - $250

This is the electric motor that, in cooperation with the separate wiper gear box, drives the single windshield wiper in the bombardier glass nose. That one window is in the very front of the aircraft, just below the 50 cal gun. The bomb sight looks out this window during the final moments of the bomb run, so it is critical that any rain be wiped off this window pane so that the bombardier has clear view of the enemy's target.

The wiper motor is positioned on the left side of the bombardier nose at the base of the windows. It can be clearly seen from the outside of the aircraft.

This item does not include the silver-colored cable that connections this wiper motor to the gear box.
