I lost my CAT today

Kleen Rite is high on shipping but still a good deal.


#22

Yah, it was like $13… but order other stuff at the same time

When I clicked this and started reading I thought you lost a 1998 3406e. Now that would have been a bad day. I was literally relieved when it was just your pump. $20k is a little more than $400

@sgb

No sir! Lol! My 389 has an anemic 60 series under the hood, and if it goes down, HOPEFULLY Fitzgerald’s will take care of it!!


#27

I forgot you had that glider. And you already know I’d take that 60 series over my isx any day.

Presumed cause of death.
Direct drive + buffer tank / intake restriction = DEATH

No clue what it is or how it got past the TWO mesh screen filters. But it did.


#31

Where in your system was the screen in your above picture?


#32

Get ya an unloader block. May save that fancy new pump someday!


#33

@amateur it was in the original spot where you would have screwed on the garden hose. I kno I should have thrown it away but I just cleaned it up last year and kept it in. I assumed that the filters would have caught anything b4 it got there.

Forgive my dumbness, lol! But I honestly don’t know the purpose of a block. I assume it’s to keep the unloader away from some of the vibrations. Help me understand! :rofl:


#34

It just moves the unloader off the pump. Helps with vibrations and if the unloader ever lets go its less likely to damage the pump. I think I ordered mine from pressure tech but cant be sure. Takes the stress off the pump.


#35

I see. So it would pop the hose between the pump and block?


#36

Yep! You will need to get a short whip.

#39

Unloader block is like the muffler tip on a civic.

Doesn’t actually do anything, but all the cool kids got em
