Washer nozzles installation issue


Hey guys, i got a set of windshield nozzles for 1965 Impala/Parisienne and having hard time understanding how they are supposed to be installed.

My set looks like that:

I remember on my previous Parisienne the nozzle itself went inside the cowl and and the anchor plate was just screwed outside. Here it doesn't seem to be possible.

In my mind the barbed ends should be pointed towards the driver's side of the car (where the washer hoses are coming from), down in the channel between the cowl vent & the rubber hood seal. The nozzles should be pointed straight back towards the windshield, run through the holes provided for the purpose. The anchor plate should line up with the bosses in the channel.

Um, by chance did this current car come with the standard 1-speed wipers without washers? One could still do that on a '65.

Washers were there at some point I assume, there's a pump and tank on their please, as well as the hose. And it's a 1 speed wipers, yes. I'm checking impalas cowl cowers and the seem to look different in those washer areas. Catalina/Bonneville looks more similar regarding the anchoring areas but different location wise.

I replaced the nozzles on my 65 and the bracket looked nothing like that. My feeling is that the Canadian pontiac washer could be unique to our cars.

Good member Bill provided them to me, perhaps he might know some more details?

Yeah, seems I'm doomed for now. I'm looking at Impala's cowl and it has two holes (one for a screw and bigger one for a nozzle) aligned diagonally and the base plate looks matching the ones I got. Parisienne's seems to have chamfers and horizontally aligned 3 holes with the bigger on the right.
Damn I needed to take those from my black Parisienne...
Will wait for a part out car opportunity then, luckily I registered the car already so not in a rush:)
Note to everyone looking for those washer jets - THEY DON'T MATCH WITH IMPALA'S!

I have a old pair somewhere here as a last resort, but the bracket on one needs soldering back onto the tube. Someone here must have have a pair for you.

C'mon guys already, help this member!

According to the GM parts books the only nozzle that is correct for a 65 Pontiac is 65 Pontiac! 66 is not the same and no Chevy used the same nozzle either.

I have a pair here for 66 but it appears that won't help you, sorry.

Mark the set you got from me were from a US car. I do not have anymore spares unfortunately. AMES sells the clamps for the hoses but not the nozzles themselves. You will have to watch EBAY I am afraid.
