Default 79 Grand Marq Project car

Hey everyone, I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I have a 1979 Mercury Grand Marquis, 4 door, with the 351w. I've thrown a bit of money into it to make it sorta cool, but being the bit of a unicorn it is nowadays, its hard to find resources online to get me along the way.

Anyways, thats why im here. Recently i brought it out of hibernation this spring (I live in Canada) and it was prety seized up from sitting all winter, I ended up replacing almost the entire braking system, from new pads, rotors, shoes, drums, wheel bearings, soft lines, hards lines, on all 4 corners. needless to say it stops like a hot damn now.

But i digress thats not why im here. I bought it before winter last year and parked it over the winter because of how bad the brakes were when i bought it. So now were here and one thing i noticed when i bought it is that it didnt spray windshield fluid out of the wipers, and no sound came from a pump.

So today im tinkerin around underthere, trying to trace the hoses from the wipers back to the pump/reservoir only to find the hose leads to nothing and there is no pump/reservoir, infact the entire assembly is missing. And since its completely gone in the first place, i dont even know where to look for its atachment points, or even what it all looks like to go get one from a junkyard or a parts car somewhere else.

So thats why im here, If anyone could maybe show me a picture of a complete engine bay with the pump/reservior intact, so i know what im looking for, or maybe someone has some Canadian hookups, it would be muchly appreciated. Thanks, and greetings.
