Windshield Wipers on 1956 "400"

The windshield wipers on my 1956 "400" don't work, although they do try to move a tiny bit. I'm wondering what the usual fix is for this problem.

Send the vacuum motor to Ficken in NY state for rebuilding, it'll be good as new when it comes back. They advertise in Hemmings.

Assuming the problem is the motor itself and not linkage or the control cable, Ficken Wiper Service does just excellent work. They can be contacted at www.wiperman.com or 631-587-3332.
