    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    I ordered a brand new 1/2 hp motor (M-58) and cam bearing on E-Bay, not knowing that there were different offsets. The supplier never told me, although he knew the M-5 well. I ordered the new one from Steambrite.

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    Goomer, you are the man. I removed the pump and sure enough, the cam bearing was a .095. I replaced it with a .160 and the pressure is awesome. It barely drops below 450 psi. I did not know there was a different offset. All these cams look similar. Thanks to you, I resolved the issue of the...

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    No, it is not the same exact regulator. Mytee sells the regulator for $170, I think. I bought a 500 psi regulator from Interlinksupply. I did remove and replaced the spring and regulator cap from the new one and replaced it with the old ones. So I basically have a new regulator with new stem and...

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    Update. Goomer you are correct! The pump is not compatible with the m5. I bought the gold 207V and instantly realized that it only has 4 ports compared to Mytee's 205V with 8 ports. I returned the pump, bought a brand new 1/2HP motor and rebuilt the pump. It is waaaaaaay smoother than the jack...

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    Hey guys, you have been tremendous help! It's interesting that https://shop.truckmountforums.com is selling the 207V as the replacement of the 205V series. I just received my new 207V pump. I think I'm just going to install it. My M5 is going to be a back up now that I got the LTD5.

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    I can't wait for our new Mytee LTD5 to arrive in the next few days. My M5 is now going to be our backup or second unit for large jobs where we cant use my TM. Im putting in the new pump, two new vac motors, new inline filter, new pressure regulator and even two new swivel casters. She should be...

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    Thanks guys, I just went the easier way and bought a brand new 207v pump and motor for $399 with free delivery from EBay. Can't beat that! :) http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/706-53473-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&toolid=10001&campid=5337618551&icep_item=252663776995

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    I can rebuild the pump, but the motor looks damaged. The pump stopped working and just hums, like if it locked up. I thought that I would just buy a brand new pump/ motor and not have to worry about it for a few years.

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    I need to replace the pump on my M5 which has a Pumptec 205V series. I called Pumptec and was told that there is no difference between the 205V and the 207V, except the color. The motor on the 207V is smaller where the 205V is bulkier and heavier. The 207V is $150 less. I trust Pumptec technical...

    Mytee LTD5

    I bought an LTD5 from Kleen-Rite (they have the best prices on Mytees) and I requested they send me one with the red know since that is what is on Mytees website. I figured that is the newest and latest model.

    Mytee LTD5

    What is the red shut off valve on the bottom front of the LTD5? Some websites have the LTD5 without the valve. Is this a new feature and what is it for?

    M5 losing water pressure

    I descaled it over night using CLR and it didn't fix the problem. Also, the pump is loud, like a jack hammer.

    M5 losing water pressure

    Pressure drops from 500 psi to about 50 psi? Is it time for a new pump or rebuild? I swap wands with 02 and .015 jets and the pressure still drops, even with my upholstery tool. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Inspection Service

    Scott, the Flir cameras range from $1,000 and up. Is there a huge difference between the $1,000-$5,000 cameras? I'm going to rent the Flir E4 camera from a local distributor and try it out.

    Inspection Service

    Scott, I was thinking of offering a leak detection service. Potential clients would be real estate agents, property managers, condominiums, plumbers, roofers, etc. At the very least, an infrared camera would be a great tool to have when doing water damage to find the source of the problem and to...

    Inspection Service

    Does anyone own an infrared camera and offer inspection services? I think this would be a great niche service.

    Stock Market

    Actually, there's more money to be made when the market is going down then when it's going up. The market drops faster then it rises. Fear trumps greed.

    Stock Market

    When the market is bearish, and we will revisit 10,000, why not sell short? Buy Put options or Bear ETF's. I can't short in our IRA so I bought Bear ETF's. We own FAZ, TZA and QID. Make money when the market is bullish and when it is bearish. No big deal.

    Upholstery agitation

    Yes, I use a horse hair brush, towels, and sponges. I was looking for more mechanical agitation for nasties and micro fibers.

    Upholstery agitation

    Does anyone use the Cyclo or a similar tool to scrub or encap upholstery? I would love one that ejects foam or prespray. http://www.cyclotoolmakers.com/polishers.php

    Just ordered a VT-14 from Joe

    That window is hypnotizing. I love watching grey water flow through until it is clear, then dry pass until hardly any water flows through. Repeat. My eyes are getting heavy and sleepy. I'm going to take a nap now.

    Just ordered a VT-14 from Joe

    I don't know the temp at the wand, but the carpet is hot when I kneel to spot clean. I don't see the steam coming out of the wand like with the 6 flow. I just know that it cleans and flushes out the dirt very well. I can see the dirt through the wand window.

    Just ordered a VT-14 from Joe

    I have an Amtex Inferno 30/47 too. We're going to have a similar setup, except I got a 10 flow.
