I have a vacuum powered windshield wiper motor (that still works well). I also have the glass canister and pump that mounts to the inner fender. What I dont have are any vacuum lines that would run from that pump, to the switch in the dash, to the squirters in each wiper post. Can anyone tell me how to run these vacuum lines? I see holes in the firewall for connection to the squirters, but not sure how the rest of it goes...

Hi,do you have the 1957 accessories installation manual? On page 208 of this manual is the complete detailed diagram of your system showing all the vacuum tube connections.If you can't find a site with this accessories manual to view maybe I can e-mail you this one page with the info you need?

Also check that the coordinator on the windshield wiper motor works. This turns on the wipers when the pump comes on.

I'm not sure I follow your comment? You have pump for the windshield washer that mounts to the inner fender?

I've never seen on like this?

Got a picture of this you can post?

Saquili,
Can you fax it to me? I can send you another PM with my fax # if so...

Rj- I have the glass canister with (what looks like) a pump attached to the lid. Maybe it's not a pump at all, but i just assumed it was. I'm guessing that vacuum goes into the canister, and the little "pump button" on the windshield wiper nob is what activates this little pump to let the fluid travel up the hoses into each sprayer. I might have the terminology wrong here. (That scematic will help me out alot).

Before I took it off the firewall, it was working. Then I dissasembled it, cleaned it and lubed it, and reassembled it and moved the pivoting doohicky thingy back and forth by hand, it was sure sucking alot of vacuum manually. (Geez, that didn't come out right at all)

Sounds like the ones I've seen.

The way I took your wording was you had a washer system with a seperate pump mounted to the inner fender. See if I'd been over at your house when you said this either there wouldn't have been any mistake or you could have just showed me the part.
