[quote=BikerPepe`;7169884. This can cause the blades to "twist" from the weight/resistance and puts the blades at a less than 90 degree angle against the windshield and will cause the blade to "hop", "skip" or "stutter" going in a single direction but usually, not both. IF that's the case for you, you'll need to twist the blade arm so the blade is sitting at 90 degrees to the windshield surface again.
This may or may not apply to your situation but it wasn't mentioned, so I thought I'd throw it out there. Good luck.[/quote]
agree with Pepe here, did it to my 79 yesterday and no more chatter
I use 2 small adjustable wrenches and gently twist the wiper arm until the chatter is gone
also the news paper cleaning works great,i think it sort of polishes the glass the same way a clay helps paint
