Is this for the window washer system
#1
Hi team.
There is a small plastic fitting screwed just above the firewall. I’m not sure if it is for the window washer system or for a vacuum tube of some sort. 
The car came with no washer bottle pump or lines or even nozzles. I’ve purchased the kits new but have no idea of the plumbing routing of the tubes. The nozzles I have ordered mount somewhere on the bonnet I understand not the grille in front of the windscreen

Your fitting doesn't look it belongs to the car, but I had an original windshield washer fitting attached to the driver side cowl on my car. A member on here told me there shouldn't be a spare washer nozzle anywhere on our cars. Her's a pic of my extra nozzle.

That's only half of the firewall connection. It has four outlets, two each side. There should be an identical section to the right of the screw in the middle of the plastic piece. Look at a vacuum schematic to see where the tube connections go. This manifold connection will ( should ? ) be available through the parts suppliers. See more info on this site as well.

The windscreen washer is a totally different set up. The nozzles mount right up under the back ( windscreen ) end of the hood ( bonnet ) There have been other posts on this as well. The bottle with pump are many $$ genuine or NOS. You can buy aftermarket versions but check that your wiper / washer switches work first.
Keep digging - it's all here in various forms. Even some of the engine bay pics will show what you need by default.

This is the first connection from the washer pump to left side windscreen nozzle.  The screw fits in a hole under the rear ( windscreen ) edge of the hood.  Incoming tube from the pump goes to one of the straight through nipples, the other side of this goes across to the right hand side nozzle.  The outlet at the screw hooks up to the left side nozzle.  Look for other posts about this or just study engine bay images carefully - you will often see this in the background.

Thanks guys. I was googling engine bay images but the original engines with the big blue aircleaners tended to obscure the fitting. That fitting was one of the few things left in the engine bay when I got the car.
I had searched window washer on the forums but not a lot came up. As the aircleaner and set up is now different (my vacuum lines are all bigger and plumbed into the carb) I guess this fitting isn't needed. I did buy an OEM looking washer tank and the hose kit so I'll hunt for pictures of the washer set up. Cheers

Here is picture of back of hood with the washers in place. The hose ran with the wire harness on the LH inner fender.
