I have a wiper handle and a new blade but no mounting hardware. I need to see a pic or two of the mount for a Touring, 1921, round windshield top. Thanks.

I don't have a picture, but the idea is to drill a hole in the upper frame, high enough that you don't hit the glass, and thread the wiper arm's threaded sleeve through the hole and attach the handle on the inside.

If you don't wan drill the upper frame and some don't, you can get a clamp at the vendors, most have them.

I think I would buy the wiper mounting bracket. If Ford didn't use one when new it would be a better idea than drilling a hole in the frame. Over the years looking for windshield frames, going to swap meets and looking for parts for my 1919 Roadster and 21 Touring I never saw a Frame that was drilled or had a wiper mounting bracket on it.
I guess I must have missed the ones that did.

I WILL NOT drill holes but I think I can modify the bracket I have to clamp onto the frame.

Someone did drill the frame on Henrietta, but not perpendicular to the glass! the result is a wiper which males contact with the glass in mid stroke only. The rest of the time it waves in the air.

My problem to consider is whether or not I fix it or leave it as a monument to past incompetence.
