Believe it or not, that's how you make the windshield washer work. You pump that foot pump and it's supposed to squirt the washer fluid on the windshield. No lie! Years ago a friend had a '73 Dart with that same washer system! HTH. -Jim

And people back in 1972 were probably thinking what a marvelous innovation that was, considering the previous generation had to hand crank their own windshield wipers and lacked washer fluid at all. Ah the simple days when you could work on your car without needing a degree in computer science.
