Well Hello TMF Family,

Truckmount:
CFI 2500
Kohler Aegis 26HP


I have an issue, During a recently maintenance I found out that I have blown out hole in the exhaust manifold at the 90°
bend that goes into the primary exchange. 90° bend elbow, and was wondering if anyone knew where I could at least find the part for this since I've seen a few post on here, stating that PowerClean Industries is out of business. I've really need the assistance on this problem. I burn way too much gas running the mount and losing heat.

I have had a similar issue with both of my Power Clean CFI 3000 machines. Near the engine where the exhaust pipes come together is a galvanized coupler that fails. I have had an exhaust shop weild a collector to the exhaust pipes with a 90 degree bend and then utilize the flange on the old part to repair this problem. I would think that you could do something similar on the top end near the heat exchanger.

Happened to mine 3 times! exchanged manifold for a new one(warranty) welded the other times, to much heat near the belts also. I am glad I am done with that machine, sorry.......

Larry White is with Guaranteed Cleaning Supply. He worked for Powerclean before they went out of business. He has access to all of the parts. I recently bought a manifold too. Cost about $250-$300. His number is 708-810-0032. If you are not in too big of a hurry, I would have the part thermal coated. Jet hot is located in Oklahoma and offer a 3 year warranty on the thermal coating.
Hope this helps,
