checking function of part

Post by softesttouch on Wed Jan 14, 2015 5:52 am

windshield wiper and washer motor. to check its function, just hook it up to 12v battery? but how do I know which wire goes where? I can't see that they are marked pos and neg. if I inadvertently run current through it backwards, will that harm it? also, how should I clean this thing? it has lots of dirt, debris, etc. down in the little nooks and crannies.

Finding a working washer for a 1st gen is like finding hen's teeth ( to me anyway). You will see an ANCO 6102 listed as a replacement but it wont fit. The washer gets it's power from the motor plug. (forward plug goes to washer). The wiper assembly operates by grounding out through the switch for the functions.

The washer assembly is just held on by two small screws and can be removed. I can be corrected but I believe most use a separate in-line pump for washers if it doesn't work right.
This the difference between the 1st gen washers that I have and an Anco 6102(bottom).

I have not been able to source a kit for the pump. Tried taking 3 to make 1 work and had no luck yet. 50 year old rubber parts are not to forgiving.

Hope this helps some.

The parts link I posted the other day says they have a rebuild kit for the washer pump. It's Dan's Classics. Go to Chevy-GMC Trucks and then to vans. I think it's on page 20.

I think that's a kit for the Anco one. That's what I ended up with and returned here once already.I do not know 2nd gens , perhaps they used the larger unit.
