Update:

1) Just finished repairing/replacing clutch linkage setup: New Gorilla Spring, Push Rod Bushing (Steel), Pivot ball ends perfect, repacked (greased) Zbar,
2) Rebuilt Windshield Washer Pump and cap, new hose lines, sprayers and switch. (Jay Maxwell).

Update: New supply hose from washer water tank to "T" to sprayers was completely clogged!!!
Cleared with compressed air....Jay Maxwell Repaired Pump now sprays water over the hard top!! Very Frustrating....been trying to figure out why pump was not operational....

CHECK YOUR NEW HOSES BEFORE YOU INSTALL THEM!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
