I ended up stripping them down and it was a build up of general gunk in the pivot points where the wiper arms bolt on.
Took a few hours but now they are quicker then they ever were.
Funny thing was the same thing happened to my work van the very next month. Weird. :-\

the problem was all the linkages were all nearly sezed so he pulled them all out soaked them in some cleaning suff maybe degreaser than cleaned them up put back in and never been better.then problem is alot of shit sits in that bay that don,t move there are 2 drain holes that are more than likely blocked so run a hose down them to flush out once a nd a while.anyway thats how i fixed them hope it helps .

I think there could be wiring issues aswell, the pissers go when you first turn the wiper knob.
I remember my 260Z 2+2 had reasonable wipers, I am going to try the complete setup out of this and see if there is any improvment. grease on all moving parts too.
Also I have read on hybridz or classiczcar that the use of a Honda Civic motor works well with minor modifications, there is a how to on it somewhere. including wiring diagram etc.

it would definitely be nice to have wipers which could keep up with the rain! and if i was ever driving along over 60 they wouldn't turn off in the right spot anyway!

As for the other comments - When you say you cleaned out the linkages etc and the wipers went faster. does that mean they went faster for a Zed or as fast as a modern cars wipers?

Everything you'll need to know about putting in a 91' Honda Civic wiper motor into your 240Z. With park function.

My other option is the wiper system out of my 260z 2+2.
