Manual washer pump.

Postby Lip Ripper » Tue Oct 17, 2017 11:39 am

I bought a parts car the other day, a 61 Falcon. I noticed it had the washer bag and squirt nozzles but no pump on the apron. I thought no way. I looked on the floor above the dimmer and there she is. A good ole fashioned foot pump. Needless to say, it is going on my 61 build. The red bag was now black but after cleaning it with purple power it is very presentable. Funny how simple things can be exciting.

Another interesting piece is the back up light switch. It must've been dealer installed. It is literally hose clamped to the column so when the 3 on the tree in in reverse it contacts the switch.

STACEY,that is cool to have one of those foot pumps,,,my mustang had one and I bent the 2squirters up so if I pumped real hard and fast ,,while sitting at a red light I could hit the car behind me if they were close,,,upset a lot of drivers,,but when your young and 10ft tall and bullet proof,,I wasn't scared.....but in todays life I wouldn't dare do it!! good luck thanks OL POP

Pop back when the stangs were new my aunt had one & at the country church she always parked in the same place. her son & me would crouch down in the seat & stomp the pedal & shoot the water over the car like you said & squirt the ladies going to the outhouse. we got a kick out of hearing them say they felt rain & not a cloud in the sky. :lol:
