'80 Autocar Windshield Parts

Restoring an '80 Autocar. Need the part, pictured below, that mounts on the outside of the cowl, below windshield, and serves as the driver head for the wiper arm. The driver head should include the crank arm that connects to the linkage arm.

Alternatively, does anyone know where these parts can be found?

This exact part search came up over on JOT, I will post a link and see if that helps. I have something similar in a complete wiper "Kit" that is supposed to be for a Marmon. I REALLY don't want to break up or sell the whole "kit".

Thanks, that's helpful. I'll start looking there.

Many thanks for the reference from the JOT website. I found the parts at Rome Truck Parts down in Rome, GA. They're very knowledgeable and extremely nice to deal with.

Glad it was helpful. I have a Marmon that uses a similar item. So far I haven't needed part for it, but when the whole wiper kit came up, I snatched it up just in case.
Rome is known as the "go to" place for air wiper motors esp and wiper system in general.
