I have a 1964 fj40 and I have the early style wiper arm and blade with the side bolt. Does anybody know where I can get just the side bolt for mounting the arms? or if you can mount the later arms to an early wiper motor? I also need another wiper arm early style because one of mine the tip where you mount the blade is missing/broken off. (didn't see that it was broken off till yesterday. ) Lots of wiper arm questions. The good thing is the wiper motors work and I have 2 arms but one is pretty much broken. I have blades for the early arms.

Might try the classifieds, also the 25/45 user’s forum. Maybe John @pardion has something. No to the later arms working on early wipers, they use a center nut on threaded shaft vs. side bolt. Early TNK arms are rare (and lots of $$’s now). SOR unfortunately no longer has their comparable replacement. I use these cheapees Replacement Windshield Wiper Arm with 9 Inch Push-On Blade - https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Replacement-Windshield-Wiper-Arm-with-9-Inch-Push-On-Blade,414447.html. GL.

on edit: not sure if this is the right bolt (#40 screw) or not, might give SOR a call. Land Cruiser Windshield Wiper Blades, Wiper Motor and Linkage - https://www.sor.com/cat192.sor#192A. Also can’t tell if those Anco snow wiper arms will work, looks like they’re for later wipers, but… ?

I have seen a few motors and blade kits for a lot of money. Thanks for the heads up on the cheep ones. Ill probably end up purchasing those as a substitute while I look for the correct ones. and those bolts are so cheep Ill just buy those to see if they are correct or not. Ill have to double check and make sure I dont have the bolts anywhere. I had lots of parts in bags and boxes. but I am pretty sure I dont have them.
