    Any suggestions/help on changing the hoses for the windshield washer on a 57 Hawk. The car has the pump and I have the bag, but the hoses need changing/installed. Thanks

    Does your washer bag have the check valve on it? Is it mounted? Where? If you have a washer bag then it should be mounted on the inside of the battery on the hold down bracket. Studebaker used 2 types of pumps also. A pump with one discharge outlet & another with 2 outlets. Let us know what you presently have.

      The bag will be mounted on the inside of the battery. It's a one hose in, one hose out. No check valve that I know of. My main question was how to change the hoses that run to the windshield outlets. Thanks

        You'll need 6' of 1/4 inch hose. 3 feet for the washer bag to the pump & 3 feet from the pump to a "tee" fitting. From the "tee" you use a 3/32 hose to each of the nozzle's. They will be less than a foot long each.
