Wiper Parking

So I had the instrument cluster out (no fun) to replace the 3 rocker switches, upon reassembly the gas gauge stopped working. I knew the wires had gone back exactly so it must be the sender I thought which just a few weeks ago I had to repair. The float had let enough gas in that it didn't float. A hot soldering iron reflowed the plastic, fixed.
The float and the electrical part of the sender was OK, figured had to take the instruments out again (really didn't want to) just in case.....well hidden amongst all the rats nest of wires was a second red wire, unplugged. On a chance I swapped the red gas gauge wire with this other red wire and the gas gauge worked!
So where does this other red wire go, If you look down to the rocker switch one spade was empty, I tried it there and the wipers parked. But not in their proper location, I think 30 yrs ago I must have disconnected the parking.
So time to see the parking issue. it's easy to get to the wiper assembly and remove it. It was nasty, paint over spray, and the worm gear grease emulsified brown slurry.
Bosch motor is in very good condition, but the output shaft is worn and has play. I could reassemble with the worn shaft but....

Anybody have a good assembly ?????????

Try APE? I have a Berlina structure in my Super with the original single speed Bosch motor, if I remember the conversion right from 20 years ago.
