The old 'washer hose on the balance tube' trick.

Andymac would be proud.

Just go with Martin's. Because it is the right thing to do. Do it once, do it right.

Every time I take a bonnet off, I put a large piece of tape on the washer hose and write windscreen washer on the tape. It is so easy to connect it up to the balance tube

Totally! I leave the tape on permanently!

Not that I ever intend to have the motor out of this thing again (heard that before) I think I'm actually going to replace the washer tube with blue silicone so there's no way it can be confused again.

It makes me feel better to know there's others who have suffered the same misfortune, sort of.
