    Okay this may be an easy one. The wiper washer fluid switch on my 73 is acting screwy. When I connect it to the switch(I guess this also supplies power to the pump) it starts to squirt and it doesnt stop(snickering only shows how childish you are) until I disconnect the switch. The wipers wprk fine with the pump switch off and everything seems to be in order(clean contacts). Any Ideas?

    I can see me going to one of the local dealer and asking for a wiper fluid pump relay for a 73 K5 Custom Deluxe.

    "If it aint broke don't fix it" is like a 4 letter word.

    I have a 74 and I take it that you have the lever on the dash next to the light knob? So you have to push in on the lever to activate the washers? Mine used to stick so I replaced it with a pump from a 88 Grand Am. The pump itself sat in the plastic tank and it is more or less an in-line pump. I simply plumbed it into my washer hoses and wired it to the wiper motor. The motor has two connentions and I spliced it into the wiper motor on the firewall and it now works like it did stock. I think I had to disconnect the stock motor some how. But, this is built into the wiper motor assembly.

    I hoped this made sense?

    My 73 was acting screwy like that too. I went to Walmart and bought one of the pumps in the auto section for like $9 and it works great. Puts out alot more pressure than the stock pump.
