Does anyone have experience with the wiper system on the 49-53 Cadillac. I am looking for a way to replace the cables that have broken. I have pictures of what I need, but I don't know how to post them here.. Any help would be greatly appreciated..

one good source of all the parts is http://www.caddydaddy.com/cart.html or
http://mcveys.com/ or http://www.restorationspecialties.com/ or http://www.usapartssupply.com/ or http://www.wiperman.com/f then there is honest Johns, caddy king, frisk this one is a good source also http://www.allcads.com/ then of course there is e-bay

my guess on them is that you will have to replace the entire transmission as the cables will have a cast knob on the end but anyone of of these people can either sell you one or direct you to some one that has them. most of these people are hobby people also.

50 to 53 Buick Super and Roadmaster the same as is 50 to 51 Olds 98 so that widens your choice and yes you have to replace the assembly there is a left and a right.
