Newer Dodge caravan wiper motor , I do recommend opening gear box up by removing the six or so torx screws and add more grease around the large plastic gear. I have run mine 2 seasons every weekend and it only gets warm even after extended use. On mine I run two half inch X 8 ft hollow aluminum poles bought from Home depot , sanded ,painted camo and use Winduks on it. Hope this helps

I have built a homemade vortex and it works great! Go to this photobucket album. If you like what you see pm me and I'll get you started. I have also posted a blurb under the "coolest thing you've ever made" thread in the Honey Hole Forum. I used a Chevy S-10 truck wiper motor.
