Tried searching for answer and didn't find it.

Should be less than 8 but would like to know before I pull and bench test my wiper '74 Spider's wiper motor.

Thanks

The current draw will depend upon the condition of the wiper blades and the windshield. More friction = more current. The bench test current will be less than the installed current.

Yes, I was just running my motor to figure out the wiring, and it was pulling 1-2 amps unloaded (that's not even connected to the mechanism).
Mine is a '74 from a GTV, I assume they're the same...

Mine pulls 2.7 amps with a dry windshield treated with Rainex.
