Fix for wimpy windsheild washer jets

August 3rd, 2008

On Trog, the windsheild washer jets were plugged with paint from the last paint job.   A needle poked in the jets helped, but still the washer fluid barely reached the window.   Turns out there’s a flow restrictor after the fluid reservioir.   It was probably put in there when the washer motor was new and had lots of mojo.    30 yrs later, it needs all the feed liquid it can get.

The flow restrictor is the blue plastic thing.

    Those are not flow-restrictors, but one-way valves….

    But they do act as flow restrictors!

    I’m not sure they are needed. The delay between requesting fluid and the the spray is negligible. I haven’t had any problems w/ the pump losing “prime” (not sure if it’s self priming)
