HOW-TO. Scout Intermittent (Pulse) Wiper Motor with a GM (Saginaw) Steering Column Switch. So I decided to Hybrid my “Project Double D’s” Scout Lower Steering Column with a 1994 GMC Steering Column. The reason I did this was for moving the Wiper Switch from the Dash to the Column to make way for an A/C Vent going in its place. Here is my Write-Up On How To Do It: HOW-TO. Scout II Tilt Steering Column (GM Hybrid) Interchange http://www.binderplanet.com/forums/...steering-column-gm-hybrid-interchange.135890/ After figuring out how to Hybrid the Column together I had full function of the wipers for Low and Hi. This however was not an acceptable option. On my build I believe that if I’m going to take the time to do something I want FULL functionality. So, it was head scratching time. Before I get started, this write up is for using a GM Steering column with the wipers on the column and making EVERYTHING function like it did in the GM Donor vehicle. I know a few people have used Jeep stuff to make this work, and I am sure there are other ways to get full functionality. However, some out there have already put GM columns in their Scout II’s and may want to use this guide to get wiper speeds of something than just Low or High. I did look into MANY options for this to work. I even looked into using a Pontiac Fierro Control Board, but it would require changing out the switch in the Column and they don’t make the switch anymore. When I did locate a switch it was going to cost in the $100 range from multiple sellers, so that idea was shot. First off, before I get into the How-To I wanted to make a general statement that many of us Scout II owners know far too well. F@^%ing IH, why couldn’t you give us more room to work with when it comes to retrofitting a Wiper Motor for these Scout II’s! Ok, now that that is out of the way, on to it. I placed a picture at the end of this write-up that will show the exact wiring and what colors go to what. Note: the plug under the steering column has a Pink Jumper Wire; this just needs to be ignored. You will use ONLY use the White, Gray, and Purple on this plug. Also Note: The Orange wire off of the Control Board will go to the Positive of the Washer Motor (Pump), GM uses a pink wire on their Pumps so I indicated it in the diagram as Orange to Pink. There are a couple of items needed for this write up to work. All of the parts I used were from the local Pick-A-Part. I spent the price of the GM Column Swap which came out to $80 for the Column at the Pick-A-Part and around $75 for NEW internal switches for the Column. Approximately $150ish Total. Assuming that all that is needed if the column is already in your Scout is the motors, it cost me a total of $12 per motor x 2 (GMC & Saturn) = $24 1 – a GM column form a 1988-1998 (not sure of exact years, I used a 1994) Chevy or GMC Truck. 2 – The Wiper Motor out of the same truck. See pics below; you want to make sure it is the motor that includes the Wiper Pulse Board. 3 – The Wiper Motor out of a 2001 L100, L200 Saturn. These motors fit PERFECT without any modifications needed to either the motor or the Scout’s bracket. See pics below; make sure it looks like the same motor as shown. I noticed they changed motors in some of the different years and they were not going to fit. My Pic is of motor in Scout Bracket, so ignore the Bracket. Mine also had rivets holding the cover onto the housing like the motor above. I had to drill them out to peek inside the motor and see what wires went where to figure out how to wire it all up, so ignore the bolts holding mine back together. Also, Make sure it is a 5 wire Plug. (Mine were colored: White, Green, Brown, Black, and Yellow) They all should be the same coloring. 4 – Both Male and Female wiring ends of the above mentioned while you’re at the Pick-A-Part. Also leave plenty of wire to work with. Let’s get to it: First thing that needs done is to pop the GMC Motor open and dig out the Control Module. Set it aside and finish gutting the rest of the GMC Motor from its housing. Don’t worry about keeping track of what goes where. We only need the Control Module Board, The Board Cover, The Housing, and the Rubber Feet of the Housing. Also, might as well keep the small screws that hold the motor to the housing. Probably the hardest part of the job will be the next step. You don’t have to perform this step like I did BUT you will need to figure out a safe housing for your Control Board. This is how I did it. I took a 4 1/2 cut off wheel on my Grinder and started by hacking off the back of the motor housing. I also used a Dermal to remove some of the material on the inside so that it won’t be in the way of my 3 motor contacts on my board. I then skinned part of my housing out with some Aluminum. Here are a few Pics of what I ended up with.
