Water dripping out of my hole
Do you think thatis a leak?
I had posted that so that Ed couldcompare with his. To me its normal.If it is just dripping it is probably just condensation from the hot air hitting the cold water in the coil.
Every heat exchanger does it but usually goes away the hotter the machine gets unless your incoming water is real cold.
Mine drips but only for the first 15 minutes or so.
I've been running it with the slow drip. I've been too busy to rip it apart. My coupler has a small crack so that's first on the agenda.
Nick says the crack could be from idling down, so I guess I'll just shut down at full rpm.
Does the same apply to belts? When you say vac hose, Im assuming you mean no matter how short. I have 9' of 2.5" clamped to my waste tank barb and the hose clamped to an inline filter. When cooling down I usually disconnect the 2" on the job end of the filter only.I am not a fan of shutting a engine down at full speed but I will tell you how to get maximum coupler life.
NEVER have the vac hose hooked up when throttling up or down.
ALWAYS warm up the machine, increase to max rpm, then attach the vac hose.
BEFORE shutting down, unhook the vac hose, then throttle down.
Engine dieseling, run on and run back is very hard on a coupler with a load attached.
