    If you carefully look at the clock you can identify the places where parts are moving against one another - bushings and so on. If you can get some sewing machine grade oil in there, you will help long term life alot. The WD40 will evaporate in due time. It has doubtless had no lubrication since the factory and not much then.

      WOW!!! I can't hardly believe that the Aqua-matic windshield washer system does work on this fine 430cid Bird? You better capture it on video ASAP!! LOL!!!

            I'd have to borrow a recorder to capture this, but with the mechanism mounted on the generator, it's buried and would be hard to capture.

            While at the VTCI International meet in Colorado last year, I watch several working units on the 58-59's that were mounted on the water pump of the FE's. These are in clear view and interesting to watch, the stream of fluid to the windshield was marginal at best, but seeing an operational system was a treat.

            I'll see what I can do about recording mine, be patient.
