'59 windshield washer hose routing
 
Does anyone know where I can find a picture or can someone post one of where the washer hoses run along the firewall to get to the pump and how they're secured. I have the older type that mounts to the power steering bracket.

Richard,

Thanks but that doesn't show the lines running along the drivers side fender to the pump on the power steering bracket. That's what I'm looking for.

This is a real can of worms. Some cars have two holes in the left fender apron above the control arm where the washer hoses are mounted. The cars without these two holes run it along the firewall like Richards' scan. I'm not sure if one is the factory installation (two holes) and the other is dealer installed or, some years had the holes and some years didn't. Any input on this?

Looks like I have the two holes in the fender apron. I'd love to see a picture of how it's supposed to look and what kind of fasteners are used.

Richard,

Thanks for the picture. Like Carl said there seems to be two ways of routing the hoses. At the top of the fender like yours and along the fender apron above the control arm. I guess either way is correct. I'll see which way gives me the shorter run.
