As Custard and Darren have said ...... filp up the cap at the bottom of the arm to reveal the nut, remove and reset arm on the spline to the park position as shown below.

I should have made it clear, the wiper is properly attached to the splines, it’s just not rotating the correct amount..... moving it down means there is an unswept area in the middle...that would be an mot issue.
Very odd.
Does anyone have one out of a car they can take a picture of? I had two but needed to make one good one as I had one stuck spindle in each. The workshop manual helpfully tells you to get it right, but doesn't provide enough detail to do so...

The linkage arm positions are critical.

Roughly from a while back ....It should be somewhere near, you may just need to position the linkage to the motor slightly further round so it lines up but is all relative. Looks like that link is not dead center but you can see it.

One for sale on eBay..the photo might help (ex Cedric I think)..though without motor in place may not be so useful.
I know I did mine way back...trial and error.
If you are time poor maybe make them an offer..

Thanks Gents,
There are two adjustment points...one is the motor angle when parked the other is the intermediate crank position - unfortunately neither picture has the motor mounted.
I've got the RHS working fine (by trial and error), what I hadn't appreciated is the other adjustment seems to impact the stroke of the LHS wiper.
As I think its fine for the MOT, I think I'll leave this for now and add this to the "post macon" list.
BUT if anyone has a picture of a RHD mechanism with the motor mounted and at the park position, that would be great.
Cheers
Lee

Wipers need to come out for more adjustment...but I’ll leave that for now...it’s ok for mot.
Door lock...turned out to be overlength bolts cutting into the insulation and creating a short in the locks...shorter bolts now and I have normal locking and even a working plipper...
Phew...this took me ages..,thanks for the help from everyone I asked about this...helped me get there in the end.
Mot tomorrow....fingers crossed...even if it looks like new underneath and on top,...

Fingers crossed for the mot, l would not worry about the wipers because at the moment the long range forecast is showing no rain for the hole event might even see some sun, but probably high level clouds down there as there is so much snow in the mountains all evaporateing.

Sorry Lee, your long bolts have been cut down to size.....sorry....
Surprising levels of low end torque on these atmo's, at least as far as you can tell on a wet morning trip to the MOT...
mixture/idle need some work, and a few other niggles will need attention this wee BUT IT passed.......fog light bulb needed changing (not sure how I missed that).

Now onto next stuff
Leaky rear light units (that can wait)
tracking...definitely needs doing...as expected.
Petrol gauge decrements but always starts at 6.2 gallon (Stuck float maybe?)
Speedo is either accurate or not there...(Assume that's the usual connector).- seems to be sorting itself out for now
Aside of that all seems to be working...and its LEGAL(and no advisories either) !!

Very well done Lee. I need to MOT mine, even finding the time is a hassle at the moment. Two new tyres to go on the front too with new metal valve stems... hopefully cure the mystery slow puncture.
I'm just here for the gasoline.
