    Diablo Not heating

    Def the flow switch under the heater. Pull switch. Open it up and pull the spring out. Cut the spring so it barely comes out of the top when it's in the switch. It will allow the heater to come on with lower pressures. Some guys just take the spring out completely. But your switch must be...

    For Sale: Winterized El Diablo Setup

    Have had a good amount of interest. To make the setup and deal even sweeter I will install a brand new Honda gx690 engine on it.

    Would possibly sell van separate if you wanted your machine in it. I can also help install equipment in it.

    For Sale: Winterized El Diablo Setup

    I'm not hard up to sell it but it looks like I'm moving back to CA. This van is way overkill there!

    Hydramaster keeps taking a dump

    Yeah it is a pain at times but gets the job done. I just know the machine so well it's hard to change. As long as it spits out hot water and sucks it back up I'm good! Haha

    Guess I'm just use to my quirky el Diablo!

    Hydramaster keeps taking a dump

    Could also be a low oil shutoff. Make sure oil is topped off. Make sure waste tank is empty. Not sure if your TM requires a full water supply to run but make sure the water reservoir is full. Then yes it's def possible your fuel pump is weak / carb issue.

    First year with a truckmount in the COLD!!!

    Another thing is I always charge a whole lot more in the winter. It's just brutal on your equipment and much harder to work in the winter months.

    First year with a truckmount in the COLD!!!

    I just bought this 4x4 beast for the winters! I do a lot of work in the mountains and it gets cold! I am in the process of building it. I will probably make a new forum topic on it. I plan on having it spray insulated (roof and walls 2 in thick). Floor is already insulated and lined. Getting a...

    How much would you pay for this?

    That is not something you would want to keep for long, better yet invest more money into possibly. That's a hefty amount of hours man. Looks beat and so does the van. Not sure of your current setup / vehicle situation but I would take the $5k plus and look for a nice used TM unit. Honestly I...

    Installed a predator engine in my el diablo

    So far so good! Put a lot of time on it and it's holding up great. No issues. Def worth looking into before you pull the trigger on a new Honda or Kohler. Cool thing is harbor freight had a sale on these after I bought it and they gave me $100 back! So I paid $599. Pretty sweet!

    Need some help deciding on a new truckmount.

    Sapphire 870 looks interesting. $30k though.

    Need some help deciding on a new truckmount.

    I am looking to buy a new truckmount in the next few weeks and wanted to get some input before pulling the trigger. I have been using masterblend's el Diablo (fuel fired) for the last 8-9 years. I really like the machine. A few things I didn't like but for the most part a solid machine that...

    Installed a predator engine in my el diablo

    Yeah I bought it when they came out around 2008. I had 2 of them and sold the other a while back. You will def have some diesel heater issues. I would recommend you learn how everything works on it and what does what. Makes it so easy to diagnose issues. The machine is as simple as it comes and...

    Installed a predator engine in my el diablo

    Another easy engine to drop in would be the Honda gx690. It's $1500. Everything matches up real nice on that one too. No one here stocks it so that would of taken a few days to get in and the cost was substantially more. Predator was an easy choice. I'll def keep you guys posted on its longevity.

    Installed a predator engine in my el diablo

    The engine was $699. I'm really surprised how powerful it is. I would say it is every bit as powerful as the Honda. The throttle is much nicer and smoother on the predator engine. Especially how I have it mounted to the frame. Engine noise is the same. Time will tell but for the price and ease...
