Do you like the way they work? They are just like the regular ones two positions Slow and High, but with another which is intermittent every six seconds. So instead of off and two stop, it has Off and three stops.

My ute has them, and I like to fit it to my sedan.

Intermittent wipers were an option for the 1200 starting in 1978 April. Then became standard fitment starting October 1981.

So any new utes in the wreckers might be worth checking.

There are three parts:
* 4-position switch (Off, INT, 1, 2)
* AMP module black, about the size of the horn relay but under the dash
* a wiring harness that goes between the amp & the wiper motor

It uses the same wiper motor, so I think a retrofit should be easy. I have an extra AMP module bought today for $2 at the wreckers, and have ordered the switch, we'll see if it is NLA. In the meantime I'll wire up some connectors that make Low intermittent and leave High as normal. It's coming into Rainy season in Seattle for the next nine months.

The only downside is they are not variable intermittent. I wonder if any T/S switch from a newer Datsun (e.g. B310 Sunny) that has a wiper switch would fit on the 1200 column ...

Here is the wiper intermittent module above the passenger kick panel. Not sure if that's where it is located on the Aussie utes.

I have a switch and a delay box from a 1200 ute spare. I was hoping to one day fit them to my 1200, but I never got around to nutting out how to wire it in.

Never seen this in my travels.. very interesting fact that newer Utes might have it standard, and that they have a different wiper switch.

I have never heard of this before but I'm sure Hella make a universal intermittant wiper switch. I'll post the part number soon

that's the one in mine. it doesn't have set speeds you just turn the dial and the speed changes. i was lead to believe that it was an optional extra.

Dealer option. All kinds of extras were offered. But not a factory option.

Yes, standard on the 1992 1200, but not variable-speed intermittent.
