Patterson’s Windshield Sprayer

One unique feature that came with Patterson is this foot pump activated windshield sprayer. This is how the bag looked when we bought it. The top was corroded and the bag was empty and dirty.  You can see the hose running from the top to the firewall.


Under the dash, the hose ran to the pump.


Here’s the whole system after the parts were cleaned up.


Unfortunately, the rubber on the pump isn’t any good. I found an NOS food pump on eBay that’s affordable, but would love to find the same pump again.

A couple closeups of the sprayer. Looks like the rubber could use replacing.

This might be an example of the box. I found the pic on google. It has the same type face as what’s on the bag.

    Hmm….did you make contact with anyone on eBay to ask if they any viable parts?

    Back in broke college days, I had the beater Nova washer pump fail. Two vacuum check valves, some hose and a small plastic hotel shampoo bottle and I was back in business.

    Jim: There was a good candidate for $20 (including shipping) on eBay, but the ad must have just ended. I’ll keep my eye on eBay.

    Brian: Nice improvisation 🙂

    Jerry, I think I paid $50 for mine on eBay. And, I only paid that much so I could restore my old one.
