Default Part number request, windshield washer check valve

I'm redoing the windshield washer system on my '78 242 and wanted to include a check valve from a newer car. I have 2 of them but after inspection the diaphragms are bad, I can't remember what cars I got them from though.

Example pic, doesn't have to be that one though.



Thanks!

240's -'80 use an inline check valve part #1210139. The one pictured is part #1392074 and is used on 7/8/900 series cars.

So what do these valves do? I've had them leak and removed them

It helps the washer fluid lines stay full so the fluid doesn't drain back down to the reservoir. Saves a few seconds of running the pump, squirts faster. (Insert squirting faster joke here)

Thanks for the p/n's. I like the 7/9 one better so ordered that. I will definitely run a filter also, just replaced every part in the system except the reservoir, that got a thorough cleaning.

Anytime. My old '70's 242's didn't have those valves, so since I replaced all the lines, pump, nozzles, etc, I just want max performance from the system lol, a bit silly but it is a very noticeable difference, and prevents a few dry wipes on the window.
