restoring '65 CJ-5: advice on wiper repair, parts sources,

Hello folks. I'm a newbie here, so please forgive any breach of custom.
I'm in the midst of restoring my old '65 CJ-5. I bought it used
in '68, drove it through high-school and college then put it up on blocks in my parent's garage in '82. It spent 25+ years in that dry garage in Calif and still in in pretty good shape (only 80K miles on it, 'cept for the rebuilt engine w/ < 500 miles). I've replaced nearly all rubber parts, fluids, etc. and it runs with a satisfying (loud) purr that only '60's flat-head 4 and create.
I have two questions today:
0) the (vacuum driven) windshield wipers don't work - I need repair advice
the vacuum seems sufficient, but there appears to be too much friction in the mechanism it. So, how do I get them working again?
I hesitate to open them up for fear of destroying old, perhaps irreplaceable gaskets. I expect it does need disassembly, parts cleaning, re-lubrication and reassembly - I've put a tiny bit of WD-40 on the outside shaft bushings but, so far, that has made no difference. The internal direction reversing valving seems to work OK if I help the blades move a bit by hand.
Any suggestions appreciated!
1) I'm looking for good pointers to parts sources, either on-line, or in SF Bay Area for (this nearly antique) CJ-5.
2) Finally, do you folks have any idea what this jeep is worth?
Many thanks, NoSpam
P.S. Bonus question: her name is LuLu - can you guess the origin of her name?
