I have a mid-March 1926 built coupe that needs a wiper motor. I believe it's a TRICO RSL series but I need to confirm this. Can anyone help? The mounting holes center distance is 4-3/4".
I have a source for a motor so all I need is are some numbers, or better yet, some really nice photos! :P

Thanks for the reply Francis! :D
After getting home yesterday I used my calipers to get a more accurate dimension which is 4-11/16". I also got out the camera and took some photos.
As you can see the dimensions are on center and the Trico-Folberth is off center. Plus you can see a small piece of the original wiper mounting ear.
I am learning that the 1914 thru 1925 and the 1928 thru today Dodges are straight forward on what parts were used. 1926 and 1927 can be very confusing!

I'm pretty sure I was told this unit is the same as Chevy four cylinder of the same era. Try Gary Wallace, the four cylinder Chevy guru. He repros parts for them.

Bill, did you find Gary? He advertises a lot of places and is well known in the 4 cylinder Chevy world. I may have a number if you can't find anything.

I tried an internet search Doug and came up empty. Go ahead and give me a PM with the number.

Many Thanks!
