Broken windshield washer connector

While I was swapping out the upper light lenses (red-back, amber-front) I seen the washer nozzle needed to be clipped back onto the wiper arm. I guess I flexed the old connector too much and SNAP! This one passes through the metal beneath the wiper arm. How do I access that spot to install a new one?

On another lo/high note, My steering wheel horn button was taken loose but the fastening hardware was lost. anybody know the screw type/size? Threads per inch? Length?

I'm going to visit a parts/junk yard that has a few buses. Might find some useful stuff there.

Where are you at? Where is this salvage yard and name. See if they have a flat International back door. Fill out your profile (UserCP)so we know where your at and what you're working on.

Now that you've filled out your profile it makes it easy for me. I see now you have an International like mine and that you are probably too far away to help me with a door from there. But if you go there and they do have one, for sure let me know.

Absolutely! I'll include all the information so you can contact them.

When I replaced my entire washer system I changed out all the through-cowl connectors to angled ones sold for Thomas buses. They accept larger tubing than the miserable little tubing that was originally there, so along with new Blue Bird adjustable nozzles and new electric pumps I now have a veritable Niagara on my windshields when I push the washer knob. Yeah! It's much better than the original Sprague air-powered washer that would ejaculate dribbles of water onto my foot while driving.

And if you're wondering how to access them, you just have to become a contortionist able to shrink your arm to half its size and bend in three extra places, then it's easy.

re: International bus

I stopped by the place where I seen the used buses. All they had we're flat nose Bluebird's. I'll keep looking for bus junkyards around here. Otherwise I'd suggest used bus sellers who buy from auctions. They might have a few parts buses.
