Where can I get the parts - small metal, hollow tubes that fit into the black rubber hoses (2) that feed wiper fluid to squirt on the windshield. In the Catalina the lines are held to the underside of the hood with a small bolt and a short of hold down clamp. I have great detailed photos that Arjen sent me through an email transfer but I cannot figure out why “copy” or “save image” won’t work for me to put up here.

Maybe somebody has some idea of a substitute bracket and where I can get very small tube.

Thanks Brian. I could probably find something in my junk hardware box that I can use as a clip or make one and use a self tapping screw to hold it to the hood. I’m trying to think where I’ve seen micro size metal tubing.
Is the copper line used for oil pressure gauges small enough - would it even work with washer fluid? Would it corrode and clog up?

They are reproduced for the popular musclecars.

It's a problem finding parts for the larger B body GM cars like we have.
Your 1968 Catalina Convertible & my 63 Gp coupe.
They actually outsold many....the smaller A body & Ponycars sold to young men back then new.

Go to Pick a Part salvage yards and find some on all the older stock including trucks. A lot had the bolt on under the hood the hood type or the upper part of cowl below the wipers. Think outside the box on this one and find a picture of the original tube and then adapt what you find. Or make your own.

1 year only Richard.

I know the headaches too.
most of 1970 TA parts are 1 year only to be correct.
1963 Pontiac Gp 1 year only.
