After years of trying vainly to get the intermittent wipers to work, I finally solved the problem. I was missing a little brass grounding piece that wasn't included in the purchase of a used correct wiper switch w/intermittent function. So nice to solve the puzzle!!!!!!

Did this grounding piece look like an open brass rivet?
Did it have a path to the intermittent relay with a brown plus black or white tracer wire?

It is the Z shaped piece that goes from where the screw hole is into the body to get a ground.
Yes, the brown/black wire traces to the intermittent relay, IIRC the S terminal.

Thank-you. Your washer hose nipples appear to take a trip down towards actual accessible. Mine are hellaciously stuffed up inside the column housing. Why does your switch have those longer washer hose nipples?

Those elongated nipple fittings are available new, complete with valve for pneumatic late bays. I was told yesterday by a '77 Westy owner that they do fit in the late bay column.

The great state of Idaho required all the windscreen washing power I could muster…
