:lol:

I plan to instal a GTV6 wipers system, because if I let one wipers I want also simple central mecanism.

Last summer I brought my home this "wreck" of GTV6, note the rare Leister Bumpers.
It wipers system will be in my trackday.
On GTV 2.0 L wipers's motor is central the mecanism go to the right side wiper and then from the right side to the left side wiper.
I thought it's wasn't useful (weight regard I mean) ti have only one wiper and must leave the 2 mecanisms.
With the GTV6, motor is on theright hand side (like my Alfetta berlina 2000) mecanism from motor to right (or central) wiper and then a mecanism from right to left wiper.
With only one wiper I would let the right (central) one without left wiper and it mecanism.
I hope I'm clear enough :roll: :oops:

Good story!!!


The part that you don't know the english for is a "shim" or a "valve shim". They are used to adjust the valve clearance.

I haope that helps,
