    Get some for your classic Ford, MG, Avenger, (ah choo Mini even)

    Below as you can see I replaced my existing "pic-jets" with some new style ones from bob to see what the difference was like.

    On Boris I already have them installed for a long time now but as a single side mounted jet. It was interesting to see how the pattern on these went as there is no vertical adjustment to speak of,

    Installation process is just the same, loosen off jet holder body, get in behind the jet and O ring with metallic blunt edge (i used my credit card) as it needs a firm push to free off the clips behind, the sping material is pretty strong.

    Removal of existing jet (same process as standard one as clip is the same)



    The new jets rhemselves have a different fixing from the other ones so need a matching jet body

    The "goo" seen is just silicone based grease used to make threading and seating on the body easy for the O ring, when the car is washed the oyuter traces go but the inner protection has remained. Shows how well these seal from the outside in all weathers !

    Thats the new ones in

    New spray pattern on passemger jet, standard jet on left








    One comment I would make is the new jests seem to use a lot more fluid at one time, could result in less sprays needed but more likely result in a bigger washer bottle needed, the little bag inside Boris bonnett wont last long !

      Note
      The single jet chrome unit has a 5mm thread , it is the only one that size, all the other types have an 8mm thread , l have stocks of single jet chrome but haven't fitted any to housings yet .
      l have just made a batch of 10 cars worth , 7 sets with 8mm thread with 3 sets left unmachined should anyone want the single chrome jet which l am now allocating as a special order.
      Also made a few of different design that will fit fibre glass boot lids (Petulas) also looking at fitting Marcos .
      Still awaiting a delivery of coloured jets
      Many thanks to John for loading this topic and all his help in my Imp related products
