Anybody know where I can get a bottle and pump for these units. I know they are about as effective as a micturating mosquito but that is what the owner wants.

Bill,

Were similar units fitted to other makes around this time or is it a unique R-R/B initiative? I remember vacuum operated windscreen wipers from the 1950/1960 era with little affection and a vacuum washer pump would be even worse!!

If vacuum washers were fitted to US manufactured cars; reproduction units should be available from the USA for car restorers.

I believe they are the same as fitted to Jaguars of the same age. I found one at the last All British Day in Brisbane

www.holden.co.uk 143.80 each Trico washer bottle type 040.000

This is an exact copy of original.

Holdens also sell original headlights.

Ashley and Carl

Many thanks for that tip. I actually had Holden's among my favourites and did not think to look there. The age is showing I am afraid!
