Conquest Wiper Blades

Post by MJGCOL55 »

Hello

What sized wiper blades would be the best to fit to a 1955 Daimler Conquest Century.

Thanks in advance,

Martin

9" is the standard length but it does depend on the wiper arms (length and angle of bend) so that the screen is wiped without rubbing. The standard arm fitment was 10.5" long with a 15 degree right hand crank 745071. Some spoon end (wrist action) arms are adjustable in length and you may be able to fit a slightly longer blade if you wish.

Many thanks for a technical answer, I shall investigate further. Regards Martin
