Very common problem on Ford depressed park wipers. I remember seeing an article somewhere about taking the wiper motor apart and rebending some metal tabs that guide the sliding metal plate on the back of the motor to fix the problem. Probably easier to grab a new wiper motor from the JY that hopefully is in better shape than yours. Any 83-88 Tbird motor should be the same.
