Does anyone make a washer pump replacement that goes on the end of the wiper motor for a 62 Chevy? I've searched everywhere and all I can find is the chevy 2 pump or a later chevy full size pump. evidently they changed the washer pump and maybe the washer motor in 1963.Ecklers makes a rebuild kit which I don't know if I want to tackle. Detroit Speed Engineering makes an external pump, but from what I read it may be for their own pump only. Has anyone tried it with the stock 62 Chevy wiper motor ?
Any help appreciated
John

Is your pump missing, or just not working? If it isn't working, there are places that will restore your original wiper motor and pump to working condition. They are not inexpensive, but you don't have many option other than that, unless you are willing to take it apart yourself. The factory service manual covers the repair for guidance.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

FYI, same 2 speed wiper motor and washers 59-62 full size and 63 vette. Not sure about any earlier full size or later vette.

The pump is there and cycles and draws in water, but the outlets (with the hoses disconnected) don't pump out water. One doesn't work at all and the other barely drips. I suspect that the old bladders have dried out and ruptured.

I'm not having any luck finding the Corvette pump either. Still looking. Thanks

Junky, who rebuilds the pumps? looks like that's the way I'll have to go. The only 59-62 rebuild kit that I can find is at Ecklers and it's out of stock. I can find plenty of 1963-67 kits, but evidently there's a difference.

The one for a 63-67 vette should be the same.
Does yours look like this one?

DonSSDD is correct, I have verified that the 59-62 pass. 2 speed wiper uses the same pump as a 63-67 Corvette. The 63-64 pass. is different. I have verified this with my old GM dealership parts catalogs. Buy the rebuild kit for the Corvette, the bellows is the hardest part to find. The kit is not difficult to install.

I have ordered the Corvette rebuild kit.
Thanks to everyone for the help. I could never have figured this out on my own.

When it arives, take some pictures and tell us how easy it was to repair. The most that I have ever replaced on a windshield wipe motor is the plastic pump parts.
