Electric wiper motors run in one direction, vacuum reciprocate, so the mechanism in the cowl is different. With some fabrication, a Jeep motor can be made to work.
The wipers typically use manifold vacuum and when that is low, the fuel pump vacuum section helps out. You can test the wiper motor with straight manifold vacuum. They should work unless the engine is under load, when vacuum is low. You could get a vacuum ball for a  few bucks at a junk yard, use a vacuum check valve, and run them off manifold vacuum. The reserve in the vacuum ball will get you past a short low vacuum time.
Wiper motors tend to have their grease get thick and then the motor gets tired.
Why Ramblers? Chicks dig 'em. Whatever it is, I can take it apart.
