Yet another wiper question...

I replaced my wiper motor today n the wipers are still not wiping. When i go to activate the wipers from the cockpit they appear to want to engage but get stuck. All settings ov the wiper speed n all have the same effect a movement ov around aninch then stuck. Could this be an issue not with the motor but the transmission ov the wipers? I didnt inspect the transmission when i was replacing the motor as i was running out ov daylight n had other shtiff goin on as well. I greatly appreciate any n all feedback. I just bought it n cant get it tagged until inspection n cant pass inspection with no wipers!

If the arms on the transmission aren't parallel, the wipers won't move. Check to make sure it's set up correctly.
