Hard to say....
Doubt it’s the fuel filter
Could be fuel pump
Could also be waste tank overflow/ engine cut switch stuck
Take the air filter off and splash some petrol down the carb
For diagnosis Can also put some petrol in a trigger bottle to keep the engine running for a few...
Don’t buy tyres online EVER
They are old stock left over in warehouses
Tyres when 5 years old should be thrown away or replaced
Give the kid at your local tyre shop a job, buy local!
Atleast you can go and complain to someone in person rather to an email that no one will reply to....
Open water box lid
Pour in descaler
Connect all your solution hoses to the machine for your longest solution hose run
Take the end connection off your solution line
Put open end of solution hose into open water box
Turn on machine
Turn on water pump
This will circulate descaler through...
Being so sensitive It needed a click detent or something...flow would almost stop on the most minor cord hangup
I taped it up and over the top doing an all day job in frustration and left it there
I can now semi adjust it
I’m going to have to reMacguyver my duct tape
Going around the shaft is...
Used a drimaster
SS is better IMO specially piping corners and edges
The metal glides on the drimaster always worried me with buttons etc. that’s just a worry though...
Can move faster with the SS
Don’t have to be quite so precise with it
See if you can demo/borrow one for a job
Has a trigger underneath like a standard old school stainless uph tool. There is a slider which locks the trigger on so it’s useable with a portable and TM
It’s a great tool!
I have the myteedry tool also
To use it’s the best
The thumb flow control valve is superior, the SS...
I would go the Mach12titanuim
Can be ordered with a 2in tube
And also ordered 2in longer for those who require the length haha
Also the Mach has adjustable manifolds which is better for your height too and I believe the ss doesn’t...
You need to find what your cost of doing business is and make enough profit to keep yourself in business.
Most big jobs want cheap and take a long time to pay....
They sound attractive sometimes, specially when the promise of more work is dangled like a carrot on a string.
In reality there’s...
You ruined my fun. I was going to suggest all the things @Kevin Dumas said. Every time I read this thread he commented exactly what I was going to say, from the brake clean to the key he nailed it[emoji106]
@rob allen the forum lost 4days, what happened. Did your prespray pipeline get hacked?
As long as you keep his name for a while & take his phone number that way you can carry on his efforts, you both get the warm feeling(not really worth anything) of the “he taught me everything/I taught that kid and he successfully took over my business and looks after my equipment right, when I...
His “goodwill” unfortunately for you both, is worth little.
Worth even less changing the biz name to yours.
Unless you take it over and run it for a few years as Kevin’s until everyone knows, then you only have a sight advantage over starting scratch.
You need to take his phone number.
You don’t spanner on your own equipment because it’s easier...
You’re an intelligent get it done kind of person. Well capable of doing simple mechanical diagnosis and repairs.
I’m not criticising you at all mate, just highlighting the natural tendency of everyone to do what’s easier...
Look in the manual for specs and / or goto a bearings/hydraulic/hose supply shop with the plunger and have them spec up new orings
Hydraulic auto brake repair shops may be able to help too
Most of those industrial/hydraulic type of places can normally help
Just beware you’re being annoying for...
Any old shampoo tank will almost bolt on any machine
Ask your local supplier
For example below
For normal residential VLM start with a pump up weed...
20in too big for residential
17in is max for residential
13in is ideal for residential
Oreck/Bissel bgem is awesome for small jobs/appartments in some instances
BUT that shampoo/feed tank on the BGEMBissel is useless/too small for commercial residential....more designed for a housewife in...
Goto local exhaust shop
Get some cutoffs of stainless pipe-doesn’t have to be stainless. Hopefully you’re earning enough to replace with new hose before mild steel exhaust pipe would rust through. Get what you can cheap and don’t pay too much[emoji106]
2in and 1.5in
Maybe 8in long
Can ask them...
Water gets damn hot anyway, solution line still gets hot!
Saves stress on mount in van, when it’s that hot I put a dripod in my van blowing on my machine, this summer I’m going to wire up an electric thermo fan and attach that to the side of my mount.
