Default Help - C3 1981 windshield wash reservoir location

Please Help me: somebody explain me or attach a photo with windshield wash fluid jar location. I am not sure where is located. I have a reservoir on the left with a cover with text: "delco products daytona ohio"
- this is the reservoir for windshield wash fluid?
Apologise my english and sorry if i do not write this thread on the right location.
I will show my C3 in the next few days.
Thank you very much.
Jurik Paul - Romania.

A photo really won't help. The wiper fluid tank is on the left (driver) ahead of the brake booster. It's tucked into the fender and you can't easily see the tank itself. It has an offset filler neck that swivels in and out. Provided it has the original cap it is black plastic with a raised windshield wiper/washer diagram.

Swivels? The neck screws to a bracket on the drip rail.

Yep! I had a hard time finding the tank on mine. Then I spotted the tank under the fender and was able to reach under and swivel the filler neck out.

It really does swivel on the '81. Not sure it is meant to, but mine does.

Does your filler neck have a flange with a hole at the top? Small brkt pop riveted to drip rail?
