If you find out let me know, I put my wipers on today after rebuilding the
motor and a new gear in the wheelbox.  You get some adjustment from the gear
cover so that they will park in the proper spot but mine drop down about
2-3" from the park position when they are running, much as you have

Subject: [TR] TR3 wiper adjustment

i checked that the wiper spindles on my tr3 where working and self parking.
then fitted my wiper arms and blades.
with the blade at approximately
horizontal position on the windscreen.
turned on the wipers and they go across
the windscreen ok but on the return stroke they went way past the
horizontal, off the windscreen and on to where the lower windscreen to
scuttle weatherstrip would be if i had one. they then want to complete the
cycle and self park at the horizontal position again.
how do i adjust please?
