I had (past tense) a Sprague air-operated washer pump that defied all my attempts to fix it and make it work right.   It hissed, gurgled, bubbled, even squirted fluid back onto my foot from the push valve, but just couldn't move enough fluid onto the windshield to make any difference.   So, I replaced it with a cheapo electric pump from Pep Boys, and I modified a push-switch to accept the original Sprague knob.   It now looks original but works excellently.   So well, that I couldn't help but install a second pump, this one for some extra nozzles above the windshields!   I now have four nozzles (two fixed and two on the wiper arms) that DRENCH the windshield.   No more pathetic dribbles for me.

Mustangs?, Vetts?  I quit counting after 100 Carryalls (Suburbans).  I drove them, fixed them and sold them to buy another.  They were great for camping until we got old and lazy and had to have our creature comforts.  Still, hardly a 'Burb goes by that I don't give the once over.  I've always been a sucker for a pretty face!  Jack

The pneumatic washer pump on our new 4108 doesn't seem to push washer fluid to the windshield. I hear air moving through the switch when I press the button and I think it's making it to the washer reservoir, but nothing is being pumped out.

Anyone have an idea if these things are worth repairing or if it's a more practical option to just replace with an electric pump?

If repair is possible, does this use a pressurized reservoir? If not, what's the basic way the thing works?

Thanks.

Richard

Biggest difference between chargers like the one you linked to and the more expensive ones is capacity. The one in your link will only do 6 amps normal charge. That will run a few lights in the house system and that's about it. I had a Progressive Dynamics 9270 with 70 amps output. You may not need 70, but odds are you'll need far more than 6.
