I note that the washer reservoir on my own Type 44 is the same part
number as the one used on cars with headlight washers - my car has

It would appear that a simple modification would be to add a headlight
washer pump (191 955 681 - doubtless bone-yard sourced) to this
reservoir and run some tubing round to the front of the intercooler.
The question is - what kind of jet to use?  How about these 'misting'
jets they use in hothouses to simulate rain forest conditions?  I've
heard at least once that the jets should face _away_ from the
intercooler to produce better misting in the airflow.
