Windshield washer kit for a 62 falcon

Post #1 by Butch71 » Mon Jul 04, 2016 1:08 pm

I've just converted my old vacuum windshield to a two speed electric. Now, I would like any advice on what parts I would need to install
an windshield washer. My Falcon never had one since new. I need everything from the bag or plastic bottle to the nozzles that fit on the
cowling. Looking for a source for all this and maybe some advice on installation.

Thanks in advance :)

The early Falcons if they had one installed usally used a vacuum operated windshield washer pump through 1965 models but some of the more Deluxe models had electric pumps available in 1963 up. You can get an original type 1962 - 1965 windshield washer bag and the 1963 - 1965 electric pump that could be easily adapted to work on your 1962, from Falcon parts.com see below link. Also some of the new two speed wiper switches have a seventh contact that can be used to power the windshield washer pump (Falcon parts has those switches also) otherwise you could mount a separate switch to power the pump. For the spray jets you might look at Mustangs or other Fords that could be adapted if you can't find some originals. Everything else like the rubber lines are common auto parts items some even used to offer universal kits that would work too like JC Withneyg, NAPA, etc. Whichever way you go they are quite easy to install. Good luck :nod:

Here is one the universal kits (see below link) that could be used. Also if you have some good junk yards near you then you could get some of the parts off many different car models and adapt it to your Falcon. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:

That is good to know however, I need two of those rigid tubes that go into the cowling area.

They look something like this

Know where I can find a couple of them? I don't think they are repopped and from what I hear there may be a variation of them that fit certain old Mustangs.

Those rigid nozzles are one key item I would need. If you come across any or know where I can get a couple please let me know. Thanks.

Can't see your picture, there are the 1965 Mustang type Nozzels (see below link) that are probably real close in looks and may be easy to adapt to your Falcon. Sorry right now I don't know of a source for the specific 1962 Falcon Nozzels though you could try the Antque Auto pats companies and old Ford dealers and or auto parts houses that have been in business a long time someone may still have a NOS set, or also the old junkyards for a good used set. With some time hunting you should be able to find a useable or new set for your Falcon good luck :nod:

And speaking of Ford NOS parts here is one of the original foot operated vacuum pumps that they used with a two speed wiper system.

This kit may also fit a 1962 Falcon I don't have access to the part number books to look up the number though.

This is what an original Washer Bag bracket looks like.

:hmmm: yeah those are quite a bit different then the Mustangs and 1964 65 Falcons. Tri-Co was one the OEM manufactures for Ford windshield washer parts back then and on later models also Anco. With some time you might be able to make a set if you had the measurements. Like if you could find some that were long enough tubes to re bend to the correct shape than make the mounting brackets and solder them on. Good luck :nod:

The 1961 to 63 Thunderbirds have a Nozzels that's close to those.

Update, I contacted someone who sold me a set of those nozzles (Used) and I am cleaning them now.

I need to find a friend that lives nearby that is a Falcon nut and can show me how those nozzles are mounted. Then I will add
the red bag, pump and combo washer/wiper/intermittent delay switch.

Getting there.

Congrats on finding the Falcon Washer Nozzles. If you can't find someone that is in your area with knowledge of how they fit, you could look for one of the 1962 Ford Falcon body assembly books these were part of the set of Ford factory service manuals it shows all the body parts and how they go togeather, there were some reproduction of these books that used to available and may still be. Below (see link) is one source that had them currently they list a CD version of the complete set Ford Factory shop manuals plus the accessory parts manual, should have most all the info you would need to do a full restoration. Good luck that's a good looking Falcon! :nod:
