Since the engine swap, my Windsheid washer jets don't work. I took off the whole hood mat today and checked those connections and those were fine. I then tookoff and put back on the hose for it. checked to make sure it wasn't kinked anywhere and found nothing. right now, I have the whole resovoir taken off. could the pump be faulty or am I missing something?

d/c the hose from the pump, and leave the electric connectors on. and then try and see if it makes a motor noise when you pull the washer handle thingy. also, check your fuses? i dont know if there is a fuse for it, but coulda blown if there is one.

Perplexing.
If it dosn't make a noise when you do the washer handle thingy in the cab when you disconect it, disconnect it and run 12v through it to see if it will even pump, it could have just died..

Weird.
