    Anyone converted to a more powerful windshied washer pump & larger reservoir setup. I went scouring the yard today for a LARGE reservoir with the integral pump and didn't find anything out of the ordinary. Anyone know of any vehicles that had massive reservoirs?

    [​IMG] just curious, but what do you need more than a gallon of wiper fluid for?
    and how powerful and large are you talking about?
    [​IMG] you could get a washdown pump for a boat, and a 5gal holding tank, and it is 12 volt and pumps 2-3 gpm at 40psi
    [​IMG] just an idea
    chris

    It needs a bigger motor.
    what's in it now?
    doen't matter it NEEDS A BIGGER MOTOR

    I don't want to run out during a day of playing in the mud with the washers set on "constant." [​IMG] Maybe a couple of gallons would work......

    i was thinking of having two washer pumps/reservoirs. the stovk one, and a big one. something that clears off the mudd i go through. i think ill have it squirt from inside the sunvisor that way it cant get covered in snoe either.

    beligerence doesn't justify intelligence.

    Some of the older Volvos had a pretty good size resevior. I had a '70 and a '74 ( the '74 was about 2 gallons!) Them Swedes sure know how to play in the slop!

    I used a washer tank &amp; pump assembly out of an older Mercedes. It holds about a gallon and a half and has a built in washer pump that I hooked up to a toggle switch. Good luck.
