I think that's a DR3A motor, fitted to a wide variety of cars. The major difference is the wiper arc & that can often be fixed by swapping the drive gear.
There's very little difference between the various models - my Mini had a 2-speed Jag wiper motor - a straight swap.
Realistically they are not hard to overhaul, the usual problem is hardened grease & a good cleaning will fix most problems.
Tip: mark the wheelboxes & wire-wound rack before dis-assembly. They only wear on one side, so inverting the rack will give you a new one!

I use MAES in Rotherham for overhauls. a bit of a step from Brum, but they have lots of experience and they do a good job. Talk to Sam there!

The DR3A was fitted to loads of vehicles, as MVpeters commented, you just require the correct wheel in order that the right angle sweep is obtained. In terms of fixing the DR3A, a new set of brushes and cleaning out 50 or 60 year old grease that's gone hard will cure most problems.
