  • Body / Glass: Windshield washer for Champ

    Where are the official factory locations for the nozzles for the windshield washers on a '63 Champ?
    1963 Champ "Stu Bludebaker"- sometimes driver
    1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
    1951 Land Cruiser "Bunnie Ketcher" only 47M miles!
    1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case
    1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
    1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

    Could be the same location as the early Larks, which is on the body between the windshield and the hood, not on the hood. You have to run the tubes inside the cab and up near the wiper gear. I have hesitated to do this to my Lark and was hoping to find a way to put them on the hood.

    Will be waiting to see what comes of this thread in case Champs have it a different way.

        I still haven't gotten an answer. I did get bored and tried to reverse engineer things from pictures. They're on the upper cowl, about six inches inboard from the wiper holes and about 3/4" back from the front edge.

          Order the installation kit instructions (or template) from the club website for a 59/60 Lark. All Champs used the same sheet metal as those cars.
