Windshield washer tee Empty Windshield washer tee

Post by Keith D Fri Mar 27, 2020 5:42 pm

I am putting in a original style windshield washer system (foot pump) in my van. It did not have one in it when I got it so I am building the system from parts that I have found over the years.

What I am looking for is a source for the tee that goes between the very small hoses to the chrome windshield "squirters" and the larger hose that goes to the check valve on top of the plastic bottle.

I have not been able to find the tee at any local parts stores, if anyone knows of a source for this plastic tee I would appreciate it.

Thanks...Keith

I don't have a picture as I don't have one, it is P/N 1-82-8 in the illustration. The two legs that go to the squirters are really small. I have looked everywhere that I can think of with no luck.

Thanks... I saw this site before it does not have the right size.

The Tee should be 1/8" on the two sides that go to the squirter nozzles and 3/16 on the leg that goes to the washer bottle's check valve. That's what I measured the pieces at.

Would probably not be perfect re squirting pressure, but how about using a 1/8" on all three sides and fill up one of those with duct-tape to fit the 3/16" hose?

Or, Use a 3 sided 1/8" and use a short piece of 1/8 hose fitted with 3/16 on the other side? silicon hose should work with a sitution like this.
