Marinco AFI Wet Wiper – Spray Nozzle blown out

I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem?

My wiper spray nozzle jet (1 of 4) blew out after only using a few times - unfortunately took a few years before I noticed.

Probably too much water pressure.

It seems silly and a waste to spend $140 for a complete new wiper assembly.

Is there a boat graveyard or second hand place I can enquire at?

Any ideas?

 Gday Hilko. 

 

Not sure if you will see this, but I have just had the exact same problem,  bloody thing, and everyone I talk to doesnt have access to spare/replacement parts... 

 

How did you go?

 

Cheers

No Joy

I asked around too - and noone keeps the bits. Rather sell you a new one. I tried to take it apart and do something using other bits. 

At the end i put it back and it's still there and one "jetless hole" just sqirts water into air - until i have to do a similar fix and replace two things at once.

it's frustrating - i reckon i only used it a couple of times before it went missing - but it was a year or two later from instal date.

cheers

Sikaflex

Thanks for getting back to me, I ended up filling the hole with sikaflex and it's held up alright, same as you I barely use them, just annoying when I have to!

 

cheers
