Anyone know where I can find an oem washer pump? Or is this pump like
the original bilge pump? A POS? I can always put in an after market
pump.

Glenn,

You probably have a Canadian Amphicar. One of my cars had such a
thing and I was told it came from Canada and it was some Canadian
requirement. The sprayer nossle was damaged on mine and the whole
system didn't look stock Amphicar so I removed it and installed the
regular switch, bezel and knob. I'm quite sure I kept the old parts
though if you would like them. These include the control itself with
attached pump and the water bottle.

Hey John:

It is my understanding that this car was purchased new from a Portland dealer. I guess it could have crossed the border. I don't know. I ran into the fellow that I bought the car from Sunday at home depot. He told me that the washer was on it when he had it (20 years) and that the previous owner may have put it on. I thought I was the third owner, but just learmed that the 1st owner had the car a very short time. Puts me in 4th place, but the caris still a native Oregonian by ownership.

My washer has a fluid bag attachehed to the rt front fender well and the pump is mounted above the glove box under the hood. There's a push button switch mounted under and besides the blower kill switch. That button drove me nuts trying to figure out what it was for. Does this sound like your installation??

Hi Glenn,

No, your system sounds like an after market add-on. The Canadian cars
didn't have the bilge blower and the washer was built into the wiper
switch. You turned the knob to engage the wipers and you pulled the
knob to squirt the washer fluid. The fluid bottle was a plastic
bottle located under the hood just alongside the brake fluid container
and the squirter nozzle was mounted between the wipers on the cowl.

I agree now that mine was an after market. However, it has been proven that some amphi's came from the factory with washers. Good exchange. My aftermarket system works fine now.
