Once you have disassembled the motor and pulled the armature from the field windings you will need to have an ohm meter. Set the meter to OHMS and then touch the red lead to the winding lead on one end and the black lead to the winding on the other end and if the windings are still good you should be a 0.00 reading or very close depending on the resistance. The reading should be close to the same as touching the red and black leads together. This means that there is a complete circuit end to end and the winding is not broken. IF the meter does not give you that reading you will have a broken winding.
Check all fuses and if good you will have to pull the covering from the rear hatch to get at the wires so you can check with a test light or volt meter to see that you are getting voltage when the wiper switch is activated. If there is no voltage try to see if the wire is damaged somewhere or if the switch itself has gone bad. If there is voltage them the motor may be burned out. You will have to have the things that you find replaced if bad.
The home heater setting will depend on where you live. If you have freezing temperatures, I would not set it below 40 degrees. A heater in the crawlspace itself should be one that has a setting that will automatically turn it on at no lower than 30-40. Usually they will have a turn on temp and a shutoff temp that is set by the manufacturer. Make sure you have all pipes in crawl space insulated and if there are exposed pipes in the crawl space I would definitely put the heater close by or use heated pipe tape and try to insulate them to keep from having any freezing. Be sure to close all foundation vents for the winter to keep the cold air out and then open them again in the spring to allow for cross thru ventilation.
Hi, Steve, I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

When a municipality has a Water Main break the work that follows introduces so much debris into the adjacent lines that most filters are coated, overwhelmed and can't stop the sludge that is being forced through them and you will find the harder compounds, ie: calcium deposits, concrete particles & actual rock debris, although microscopic in size, in the water control solenoids of the new appliances we have today. It only takes one tiny little hard particle to jam the plunger in a solenoid and stop it from opening or closing. I feel confident in saying that your machine is not damaged but the clean-out of it may require a Technician that the City is Libel for paying, to fix your machine if the task is too complicated for your skill level. As with any new machine, cut all power to it and let it rest for ten minuets before powering back up to allow it to run it's own diagnostic troubleshooting program. It might give you a Fault code that will tell you exactly what's wrong and it could even clear the fault itself. I hope that helps.

then choose "RESTORE COMPUTER TO EARLIER TIME' and follow dialog. If system requires to make backup first then authorise it to make backup, you may need it later.
My first question is, can the engine idle ok. If yes, then cutting out at intersections may well be heat soak from the engine boiling off the fuel in the float chambers. Try fitting anti-percolating blocks between the inlet and the carburetor mounts. These are red fibrous blocks machined to the same tolerances as the carby bases.
