Now one will need to do a secondary cleaning before painting to make sure no solvents are left to interfere with painting. Might be best to just bite the bullet and get a replacement washer pump from your parts supplier as some of the jury rig deals wind up costing as much or more as doing it right in the first place.

my jeery riged washer is 10 years old and all i ever do is clean the filter, the made in china ones ar small and short lived
