Squirty ones :P

 

Bit of research suggests GWW804 (& poss also GWW812 -twin jet), seems the original MK3 jets had a brass coloured ball (silver balls later on?) ....this is the only place i could find any-

I've found some GWW812 for sale but those are in 90's looking Unipart packaging... hard to tell if they are any different to those 13H7843 you found.

GWW829 Plastic, Nimbus Grey -as found on a Mk4

Not 100% convinced by the online info stating GWW812 were used on the Mk3.

It's a manual pump (not electric) so i hope you've got really, really strong thumbs.

Either get some GWW804 single jet washers ....or gut the GWW102 Manual Washer & fit a push-to-make switch & spring inside it (& hide an electric pump somewhere).

I might be a MK3 anorak -but i'm not a purist.
