Result. Wipers work but, park on right. I could strip down motor again but I will buy new wiper arms for right park along with new blades.
Thanks John for wiper motor housing.
Move on to next task, aiming to get mot in Nov.

John, you're suggesting I could bend them in the opposite direction. Have you done this yourself, does it not distort the arm?
Just had a look at wiper arm, released spring and pinched part of arm this allows the handed arm to move out, the thing that stops it is the riveted Spring mount. If I drill out rivet the handed arm will come out then just turn it over now handed in reverse and put back together.

Yes,done it,
No distortion,it's good because with a little patience you can "set" the arm/wipers to how you want them...
