I'd like to add a windshield washer to my 65 gal, anyone have any tips for finding or inserting some nozzles?

Dearborn Classics has everything you need to splish splash your windshield...just remember to be caareful of trying to bend the nozzles to full spray your windshield...I found out the hard way OUCH!!!had to reorder a set after breaking a nozzle...the factory setting is the placement that the nozzles fit in ie...the notch...remember that it is using 41 year old technology when we were not so anal about having the perfect spray pattern...what I mean is after hours of screwing around with the nozzle placement we settled for a hit or miss kinda pattern...hell I was so happy that it sprayed a full blast that I did not care that half the spray went over the roof and hit the trunk HAHAHA...Marla

Nice "factory setting" description!

I looked in the book but didn't see them. Probably I was blinded by the fact I would have to pay $100 s&h for a $10 set of nozzles. I bet you hated that reorder.
Autozone has some "skull" nozzles but you have to drill a hole in the top of the cowl. This weekend I will walk the parking lots looking for something that looks like it will fit.

Thanks for all the freudian entertainment- the stuff at the end there took me back to my teenager days.

I like the ones on the '70's full size Ford Merc cars that attached to the wiper arms. I grabbed a bunch off wrecks in the local yard one weekend. Stu

The point of windshield washer is they are supposed to be used when the car is on the road, at speed. The reason they shot over the car is there is no moving air stream.

I don't think they took into consideration that people would try to use them while sitting a the light. If the car is stopped, it might be better to just wash the window?

Of course; that was back in the day. Before remote controls for TV's, garage door openners or electric can openers.

...I wonder if that has anything to do with people getting fatter or needing to go to the gym to work out?...
