Wipers eventually go out of sync

Anyone have this issue and no how to fix it? It's been like this since I got the bus years ago. Here's a link to a vid..

other than running them on a dry windshield they are normal.. there are 2 separate motors even if you have one switch.. they will not stay in sync.. nothing is broken

i think school bus wipers suck even on a good day.. although I did find trico-maxx blades. (had to drill a hole in the mount) work great.. much better than anything ove had on that us before

You had to drill a hole because of your bus model or you think I'll have the same issue?

And BTW, you have to highlight your link and click the little icon that looks like a chain link across a globe above the text box, otherwise, it's not clickable. Fixed now...

I have a Blue Bird and my wipers do the exact same thing. Perfectly normal. Helpful hint, I needed Anco 53-18 blades and found them absurdly cheap on RockAuto compared to pretty much everywhere else. I did not replace the whole blade, just the "insert".
