RE: Wiper refills



Hi – Napa no longer carries the 60-1612, which is the 16” wiper refill, or the 60-1312, which is the 13” wiper refill.  I purchased a set of NORS refills and took them to the local NAPA store to see if there is a suitable replacement.  The only 13” refills they now carry are the narrow line, which are substantially more narrow than the stock wiper refills.  I also checked the Anco and Trico catalogs and could find nothing.  I presume the situation is the same for the 16” refills.  For those of us to want to maintain the original Anco anti-lift wipers it appears the only alternative is to purchase NORS refills such as this 13” blade.  I could not find a comparable NOS 16” blade.  I may buy a second set and tuck them away since they are not being produced anymore.

Found references to NAPA 60-1612 refills, might be worth a visit to your local NAPA.  That does not pull up anything at napaoline.com however.

I asked that seller about refills when I got the arms/blades, and even he did not have a good answer.  He had a lot of those aftermarket arms for awhile, bought mine from him in 2013.  Don’t see any listed now.  Was just glad there was something different than the funky original arms/blades.

Ricky – thanks for the suggestion.  I looked at the Trico 43-130 (the 13” version) and while it appears to be correct it does not interchange according to a couple of sources.  I would like to find one locally and see if there is a problem and what it is – perhaps width. 

 

The problem I had was that I used the wipers no more than a couple of times and for no more than an hour or so total.  The next time I used them they both shredded from end to end.

Have you tried Trico 43-160 or 44-160.  I have those in my notes for possibles.

 

Also bought NOS after market arms and dead-locker blades off eBay, but holding up to rare use so far.

Hi – my 65 A-Body as well as previous 65 B-body came with Anco Anti-lift Red Dot wiper blades.  The correct refills have two stainless steel strips that fit into the blades.  I purchased a set of NOS blades with wipers recently.  While the blades look great both rubber wipers shredded with only a couple of uses.  Obviously, the integrity of the 40-year old rubber had deteriorated even though it looked fine.  Anco no longer makes a replacement refill.  It only sells modern blades and refills that require removal of the stock Anco Red Dot wipers, which I don’t want to do.  Does anyone know of a source for new refills that will fit the stock Anco blades? 

 

Below are links to two types of NOS refills on Ebay as well as a link to a NOS A-body wiper.  I purchased one of the refills to allow me to use the wipers in the short term but I am not confident they will hold up much better than the last set.  Bob from Maine
