67 Impala washer pump is part number 4917714.. Search it on eBay and google perhaps..

Is this it?

This website may be handy.. I've dealt with them before.. Will ship USPS now, (but the pump is discontinued)

Steve, that's a different model. That's the pump for what the manual calls the "depressed" wiper set-up - which I believe are the optional hideaway wipers (that sit under the lip of the hood when turned off).

Not the same as mine. Mine are the non-depressed wipers. The entire wiper motor/pump set-up is completely different.

The pump you posted won't hook up to my wiper motor.


The '67 Camaro pump is visually similar to mine, though the house connection is facing a different direction. That wouldn't be an issue on its own, however I'm unsure if the internal gearing lines up with my wiper motor's rotating gear.

OK, so I've kinda figured out the wiper motor/washer pump situation.

The motor is basically the same as the 67 Camaro (and many other GM models with non-depressed wipers) - Type E - with a few exceptions.
  • The extended housing turned 90 degrees - On my Impala it sits upright whereas the Camaro's lays flat.
  • The pump valves on the Impala are facing up whilst on the Camaro they are facing out.
  • The gear box cover (that bolts to the firewall) is rotated. I believe the 67 Camaro differs to the 68-69 in this regard also. Internals are the same, simply the attachment points are in different positions.

Aus Impala: Part # 5045518



Camaro: Part # 5045508




Thankfully the pumps are reproduced, however they are not factory correct in appearance which is what threw me off. The internal functions are the same, but the housing is different, as well as the valves facing down on the repro.

Found this on another forum differentiating the two. Repro on the left, original on the right.







That's made me feel a little better about it. The repro pumps are cheap as chips so I'll just take a gamble and buy one.


Now onto the next issue.

Have always had trouble starting the Impala with the air-filter & cover on. Starts immediately with the cover off. Occasionally it would start with the cover on, but 9 out of 10 attempts it wouldn't. Had a proper look at it today and realised the problem.

When the base of the cover is on, it sits on the very end of the throttle linkage. Once the accelerator is pressed and the linkage pulls back, when it returns, it gets stuck on the lip of the base-plate, therefore never allowing it to properly close.






You can see here there's a good 1 1/2" of excess, so I'll chop it down a 1/2" or so and see if that does the trick.

Yo Russ
Have you got the parkers set up to stay on when you turn on the headlights?

They've been kept standard and switch off when headlights go on.

The auto-electrician asked me about that but it required him getting under the dash which meant a little more time - I wanted it back by the weekend so I said just keep it stock.

I'm with you ... would rather them stay on with the headlights. Once it's on the road, I'll go back and get them altered.

Re washer pump

Hi Russ

Have you considered opening up the worn out gm pump box and comparing it to the new?

I have substituted several internals with modern ones due to not adequate design

I've opened up mine. It isn't worn out. Just a broken latch is all. Repro pumps are only $40. No real drama.

New door panels have landed!

Actually they arrived last week, but I've got no money to get them completed yet, so they've been sitting here doing nothing. I have to have the top rail & repro window felts attached, but it's not something I want to try on my own. I know I'll bugger it up.

Thought I'd give you all a look-see though.





Look nice and feel good. There are a few differences, but I'm unsure of whether or not there were differences between the original US and RHD Australian versions. Our original trims were done here, so there's a chance that's where the change came from.

The area of carpet on my originals is 7" high, and on the new CarsInc panels it's 5". Because of this, the horizontal stitch lines don't line up.

When the backing boards are lined up together at the top, all holes for window cranks etc line up perfectly, however my originals are approx 1/4" taller. Not a big deal. Just thought it worth mentioning.




Hopefully I can get them sorted within the next few weeks.

Looking good Russ, very rare to see these boats on the road any more.

If had my time again I certainly would consider one myself.

What wheels are you putting on?

Going to clean the Rally's up and keep them, though I wouldn't mind getting them widened an inch.

If I did go the aftermarket route, I'd keep it simple with some Cragar SS.

Just two things.. would you ever consider wheel arch trim? Dave Clee at Pontiworld had them. and do you know about the flashers? There should be a little screw on the left of the steering column that if you undo and click in or out you can get your indicators to flash..( if you have a flasher can too). The wiring is set up from the factory. If you have a look at your ozzie brochure you can see the car has a flasher button on the steering column.

Congrats again!

Cheers

Undecided on the arch trim. Mine didn't come with them, but I do like them. Might check them out.

Never knew about the flashers. Thanks for the tip. Will check it out.

Haha ... it sucked. The first half I shot was with my favourite lens, but the focus ring was busted. That's why it's overly shaky. The focus ring got stuck and I put a bit too much effort into turning it, and pulled the guts right out of lens body :



Then the second half, the nice sliding shots, was with a different lens with a different focal length. I like it but it captures colour differently and can be hard to match ... but it's all practice for me at this point so I'm happy with it.

Got a new lens to replace the old today, so I'll be doing plenty more.

Thanks for the kind words.
