Did you replace the bellows as well?  See page 211 in the Clark’s catalog.  I replaced the bellows and valve assembly on my ’65 Corsa 20 years ago, and it still works fine, even after sitting all winter.  If it hasn’t been used in a while, you might get a dribble at first when you actuate the washer, but the full stream comes after actuating it a second time.

Hey guys! I need some help with my windshield washers on my 64 Spyder.
The washers were not working, so I replaced the valve assembly with a kit. After replacing the valve assembly it still would not squirt until I had primed the system by squirting water into the inlet hose. Then they worked fine. 15 minutes later they still worked. But after sitting overnight they have lost their prime, and would not work until I primed them again.
Who knows how to make them work? I am not looking to change the system to an electric pump or foot pump, just trying to get the existing system to work.
Thank you!
