Washer switch location?

Postby fencelizard » Sun Jun 18, 2017 10:15 am

Hi, I have a 1967 F100 with some seriously hacked wiring. I installed a new Kwik wire harness among other things... The washer motor is out and bench tested. Low speed is out, high speed is fine. I also want to replace the switch. I also ordered a new washer pump (Dead) and bag (Missing but rack is there)
I have a switch with 3 positions, Off-Low-High I assume.

How does the washer pump activate?

Can I incorporate it in a new type switch and if so which one?

can this motor handle an intermittent switch and if so what is needed?

Thanks

You either push it or pull it.

Had a similar problem on my 68. Po had removed the tank, washer and just cut the wires and left them hanging. It was the same idiot who cut sections out of the fender aprons to then destroy the exhaust manifolds and cylinder heads in his failed effort to repair exhaust leaks. Anyway, I was able to get a new tank and pump, splice into the wiring and get things right again. My washer comes on with a pull on the switch knob. Not sure if 67's did the same.

BTW, anyone else think there should be a special place in hell for all those hackers out there that ruin nice cars and trucks because their pride gets in the way of turning over the job to someone with skills? I say at least a year of shoveling coal in the main boiler room, with windows in it so they can see people driving by in the restored cars that they had previously hacked up. Hey, we can hope can't we?

I have pulled and pushed with a fair amount of force and it doesn't move. I ordered a new switch so maybe that one will. I chose this truck because of the condition as I wanted to do a CV/Mark VIII swap. All that is complete and should be on the road in about a a week. The PO hacked every part of this truck from paint to tires but the frame was clean. I wasn't afraid of destroying a truck that was near death. Just a few more bugaboos and it's done, aside from paint. If it works well, that'll come next.

The 67 you pull out the wiper switch. Mine did not work, took apart switch and when reassembled it worked. Not sure what the issue was but after 50 years, who knows.
