Both motors (windscreen and headlamps) run on the same circuit, if I recall from my 155.
The problem I had was that the washer pump for the headlamp washers was knacked and needed replacing... but yours could also be duff connectors.
Start with that. Wire a bulb into the headlamp washer connectors and see if it glows when the washers are activated. No lighty, no leccy... (my guess as the most likely)/
If the light comes on, then the washer pump must be knacked.
But you may get a noise and no water still.. so;
The hoses could also be bunged up but you usually get some kind of dribble. If your circuit works and the pump makes a sound, pull it out from the tank and stick the pickup tube into a water supply (jar or dish) and check that it lifts it into the tube.
My 155 pump was spinning (the axle) but the impellor blades weren't doing anything.. so that fooled me for a while. They must've worked loose on the spindle. New pump time...
The hoses don't need bleeding or anything complicated. If the pump works, it will push any air out, so don't bother wasting toooo much time there.
No bullets for Chaingun..
