Hey I was reaching out to see if there is anyone that can help with a few repairs on my el Diablo Truckmount. My rinse is not working and my machine has been sitting for about 3 months, and so my blower is locked up. Needing some help will compensate.

I had my machine worked on at full circle in Kansas City, the bypassed some things and now my rinse is not working.

my number is 901-568-1383

We went to Northern Tool (could go to Harbor Freight too) and bought a jumbo pipe wrench. You may or may not have to remove the belts. Spray some PB Blaster in the blower port and a simple 1/4" twist and she will be unlocked. Make sure you PB Blaster at end each day and again if you are going to store it.

Ok. Do I have to remove the love joy and such? I’m not that good a mechanic, that’s why I have not done so already.
Nope, just give it a turn and if you can get it around the pulley of the love joy even better. Take 5 minutes!

yup giant pipe wrench..........I think I paid 23 bucks for ours at harbour freight. Do not think you can do it with a smaller one or the cheaper one. You need the wrench that is nearly 3 feet long.

Its come in handy for other projects as well so money well spent.
