Windshield Washer Aiming

Does anyone know the link where they tell you where the jets are to be aimed at for a 210? I remember my old Chilton for a 201 told me where to aim the jets at. TIA

There are 4 streams coming out. I am trying to see where we should have them hitting the windshield at.

Ahem...........

...............Aklim, I do believe that you can figure this out without a book.

Now, if you want to remove the head, well, that's another story.

I just remembered that there was a pic with measurements of where the jets should spray.

When I had to get a head job, I got in touch with a tech to do the job on the side.

Also, the inner pair should hit about 1/3 of the way up the windshield, and the outer pair about 2/3 of the way up.

Why can't you do as I did? Form a working relationship with a few good techs and privately sound them out about doing side jobs for you? A tech gets paid less than $20 an hour. Say $15. Take taxes out and they take home about $11-12 an hour. Say you pay them $30 in cash. That is mroe than they take home.

But the picture shows a 140, which has three nozzle "units" (six jets), while a 123 or 124 only has two (four jets). So the pattern has to be different. (Not sure about a 126.)

It also says it is for a 210. Maybe we just forget about the 2 center jets then?
