thought you might be interested in this. I recently bought some tire
sealant for my tractor (typical Texan right?). The liquid came in a one
gallon container similar to the ones you buy windshield washer solution in.
The container also had a plastic plunger pump which was installed by just
removing the existing container lid and screwing the pump in place. Each
stroke dispensed around 1 ounce of liquid. If the pump can hold up to
blanket wash, it might be what you were looking for and I paid less than 15
dollars for the sealant which included the pump. It was at an auto supply
store (Gateway Auto I think). good luck.
