    Buick 1957 vacuum pump for windshield wiper

    Dear all

    I have a Buick Special from 1957 and the vacuum pump for the windshield wiper is broken or only useful for a half "round". My mechanic has controlled the tubes and wires and thinks, that it is the vacuum pump. Are there somebody, who knows, if it is possible to repair the vacuum pump (what is normally the problem ?) or where I can buy a new or a repaired one.

    Thank in advance.

    the other alternative is to fit an electric vacuum pump. This is what I have done to mine. You can mount it out of sight so you keep the look and opertion of the original wipers but save the problem of having to remove and repair the vacuum pump.

    I have wired mine through a separate switch so it only runswhen the wipers are needed.

    Regards
    Peter
