    My understanding is the 76-78 pickups had washer emitters hidden inside the cowl vents, whereas previous models had them mounted on the hood. I got the right parts (the metal emitter "straws") but it wasn't obvious to me how they'd mount on the firewall/cowl area or behind the block plate - so looking for pics showing how they're mounted, so I can retrofit onto my 1975. Thanks.

    I think the center T is supposed to be held on with another clip but it’s broken 5463E62F-7E2F-420E-BD87-85827C859AF8.jpeg

    Awesome, thanks man!
    Well I guess I was wrong with the years and it’s the 77-78 trucks with the hidden washer emitters I need to reference. I guess that makes sense since PO said he had a 78 donor truck for a few items

    You were right. !!!!
    Attached is picture of my setup. There are slight dimples in the firewall where these mount on my 1978. Put arrows to show exact location.

    Yes! That’s the pic I needed! Thanks

    no holes on my firewall but that’s ok because now I generally know how they need to be
