Default *** Early model '68 question ***

Just wondering what is the correct factory set-up on an early model '68 in regards to the windshield washer assembly. Windshield washer fluid bag or a black plastic washer fluid tank??? Mine has the black tank. Thanks in advance... BK3

Hey Bro,
my June of 68 has the silver/grey bladder bag hanging on the passenger side about where the small blocks have their over flow tanks.
Happy 4th

Hello Marshal - hmmm, if that's the case - my set-up is wrong (changed by the PO, I guess). Now another part I have to find.

Happy July 4TH to you. Enjoy the day. Just coming off of the Canada July 1st long weekend - it was a good one. Luckily I have today off from work to recoup.

Black plastic tank for all non-AC cars. Bag in place of the tank for all AC cars. Early\late doesn't actually have anything to do with it.

Hello Mike - thank you for setting that straight , I did not know that. No A/C on my ride. Black tank should be correct.

Have a great July 4TH BK3

The bladder bag and bracket is still avail.
There is a small filter on the bag end of hose.
It then passes through a metal screw lid type cap up to the squirter nipple on the wiper pump
I bleed mine by getting a mouth full of water and blew it into the hose and it came out the windshield nozzles.
I went into the car pushed the button and the damm think still worked like new?????
That's all I know now
Bags around $60.00 through most vendors.
Hope your weekend was a blast.
If it ever stops rainning in Pennsylvania, I'm going to have Missy in the
4th of July parade.
