Old stand alone washer pump?

The windshield washer in our 65 wasn't really hooked up when we bought it, and I've not payed much attention to it, until tonite when I found myself without something to fiddle with. So I took, what I think is a washer pump, apart. But when looking at GM washer pumps, I can't find this model and I'm mostly wondering if it is a washer fluid pump or something else? It was mounted close to the horns, but no lines were hooked up.

The gears somehwat move when power is applied to the hookup but its pretty dirty.

Re: Old stand alone washer pump?

Looks like a pump probably for the washers. Never seen one remote mounted perhaps it's not a GM part rather old school of the shelf parts store part. If your not worried about originality go to a salvage yard and get a washer res that has a pump with it. I got a small one years back and it does a good job.

Back in the day, places like J.C. Whitney and Warshawski Brothers among others sold inexpensive aftermarket windshield washer pumps that simply bolted up to the inner fender between the reservoir bottle and the windshield nozzles to replace a defective or worn out factor pump. That's probably what you have there.

Definitely NOT factory!

Wonder how well those gears kept a good prime with washer fluid?

Re: Old stand alone washer pump?

Little update,

Thanks all for clearing up the origin of this odd piece.

I did some r-n-r on it and tried it out, it does shoot water pretty well, had some leaks around the gear cover but that's fixed. Have to try it out and see if the old lines are still good.
