    I might just turn Democrat

    Or you can just move up here to Canada! Every day Prime minister trudeau comes out in front of the cameras of our state funded media, and throws out money to the masses from his magic money bag! And now he’s going to ban and “buy back” all of our legally owned guns with our own tax dollars...

    Price shock on quotes

    Thanks for the advice people, that was quite helpful. And I do apologize for being so late in getting back to this post. I like the idea of making sure to send an email quote with everything itemized. It shows the value of what they receive and gives you more credibility in general. Especially...

    Price shock on quotes

    I’ve had this nagging issue for a while. When some clients want to combine multiple services and have say carpets, tile, a couple showers they don’t like seeing the big price of everything added up and then don’t book. However, these same people would have no problem if it was just the tile or...

    Replace vac motor housing?

    Thanks for that offer I appreciate it, however I’m up in Canada and the shipping cost would be pretty high so it’s likely not worth it. I’m going to order a new motor.

    Replace vac motor housing?

    Thanks for the info Luky, the problem is that the metal is weakened by rust to the point where it’s flexing enough that the impeller blades rub the metal. I tried loosening off the mounting bolts but it’s so flexible that I can’t back it off enough. To get it to stop it’s so loose I think the...

    Replace vac motor housing?

    By the housing I mean the bottom of the motor, the bowl shaped piece with the vacuum inlet in it. This piece is crimped on but I think I can remove it. Are replacements available?

    Replace vac motor housing?

    By the housing I mean the bottom of the motor where the vac gasket seats on. The housing rusted out on an 8.4. Other than that the motor is good so I hate to scrap it. Is it possible to buy a replacement housing and if so where do you get them?

    My newest portable set up. Lighter, more powerful, and more versatile set up yet.

    Good to see you back Paul! So you mean you use probiotics on carpets? I thought that was for eating

    Generator heat exchanger Etm

    Thanks for the info. Does it quiet down the generator a bit too?

    Generator heat exchanger Etm

    Very nice. What did you use for the exhaust pipe that goes from engine to HX, and how does it attach to the engine (or to original exhaust that was on generator?)

    Me too Jim. The only reason I thought of using a smaller CFM motor is because you did it years ago with the small booster behind an 8.4 in series. It seems to defy physics but it worked for you.

    Generator heat exchanger Etm

    I like this idea! Is that white housing attached to the motor the fan and is it pulling heat from engine to heat exchanger?

    Hey Jim, I’m going to try this too! I Have an LX on the way right now to try with an 8.4. Have you tried yours yet?

    By the numbers.......6.6"LX vs 8.4" in series

    Yes! I'm glad you get what I'm saying. I agree, the wand gauge thing is ok, but there is too much variation. At least guys are starting to do that now though, for years the only performance numbers used around here were sealed lift and open flow CFM. Its so simple, guys on here just need to get...

    By the numbers.......6.6"LX vs 8.4" in series

    Hello Ed, thank you for that information I did go back and read it in more detail. What i was referring to in my earlier post was your post #153 on page 8, it sounded like you had tried John's motors in your machines, when I think you were actually using the older 2 stage version of the 6.6. I...
