Windshield Washer Motor

Post by Howard R » Sun Oct 27, 2019 11:50 pm

I have a 1969. I have a good washer reservoir, but the motor does not work. Anyone with a working motor?

I have 4 used ones. I can see if any of the work. If you want a new one then this ebay model looks close. You need to change the wire ends with your current ones:

I prefer an original motor. If you have a working motor that would fit the original location on the reservoir, I'd be interested.


thanks

Sorry Howard they were all dead.
This on on ebay will fit and it's very inexpensive.
2V Universal Windshield Washer Pump For Land Rover VW Austin Jaguar MG MGB

It's made for British car so you can trust their electrical...right Lucas? LOL.

You do have to remove the bracket carefully, but it fits right in the rubber mount on the washer tank on a high windshield car.
To remove the bracket hold it together when you remove the screws, slide the bracket away without letting the white top move. Put the screws back in. I made the mistake of removing the top "not carefully" as I didn't think it would come apart. Well it does. You won't be able to guess how it goes back together again :(

Thanks for the effort, but after looking at my motor I wasn't optimistic that you had a good one.

Installed this one. Works perfectly. I only had to replace the inlet hose that was clogged.

Will that one fit in the original rubber mount?

It's about the same size as the old pump.I had to cut off the part of the pump where the hole is. Yes, I attached it with nylon straps, by drilling holes in the reservoir bracket and running the straps thru the holes and around the pump.

Amazon.com has the Trico 11-601 Spray Windshield Washer Pump-Pack of 1.
The pump would fit but the rubber mount has to be modified to accept the wire plugin for the pump motor.

I have a couple of Tricos. The old ones fit like a glove, the new ones like Amazon have an gigantic ugly plug that restricts it from fitting into the rubber mount. Rock Auto's have the same issue as well as many that I found on ebay. All three had mis-leading photos, but what you get looks like this one below. A reviewer had the same complaint. You can see that the power connector extrudes way beyond reasonable to fit the rubber mount. just my 2 cents.
_ _ Click on picture for the better view of it. Notice the big bulky white plug that goes into the big plastic piece of the motor which is non-removable.

This is what was advertised by Amazon...but you won't get it ! It's really due to Trico changing the motor but no one got the memo to update their photos.

It has been my experience that it is worth putting a filter on the discharge of the pump, between the pump and the nozzles. On my other vehicles, this was done after the jets were clogged with small debris that could not be dislodged from the orifice. After replacing jets, and getting a dose of Ford dealer pricing, I find it worthwhile.
