Jim Coleman Company Vacuum


I learned something about my Jim Coleman Company vacuums today. Greg was fixing everything that was broken at my wash when we discussed the timer differences that I had.


Apparently if the timer (1034r timer sn-052200-88) has the new firmware it says "SELECT" and if the firmware is old it says "ADD".  Also, you could test by pressing the buttons. If the buttons sound when pressed it is the new firmware. If there is no sound then it is the old firmware. This is important because the old firmware allows fragrance or vacuum and with the new firmware you can switch between the two.

General Pump repair the next day


I started by taking off the head on the pump today. When I took the head off it looked like above. The medal pieces had stuck to the ceramic shaft. After pulling the medal pieces off I put them back into the head.  Then I noticed the ceramic shafts had black crap on them.  Which I guess is bad? So I put some lube on them and put the head back on.


It still leaks and now the pressure in around 300.  Which is bad. So now I do not know what to do.


Also, today I got to dig out two of my bays. YEA!

General Pump repair


I am trying to repair my General Pump T1321 Series 47.  It is pulsating enough to close off the bay. I replaced the check valve o-rings about two weeks ago and apparently forgot to replace the top three.  The o-rings were damaged pretty good so I guess I need to look at the packing that I replace two days ago.  I must have put the packing in incorrectly.


Now the head leaks and the high pressure is still pulsating.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for pump repair.

DQ Blizzard


Today was a great day I found a DQ Blizzard at the car wash.  I felt like no one even drank any of the creamy goodness.


Then I became saddened by the fact there was no straw.  But the person that left the Blizzard dropped the straw in front of me at my feet.


I inserted the straw.


Every thing is great.  My Blizzard is ready to drink.


It must have been sitting in the sun to long.  It tasted really bad.


So I had to dump it in the dumpster.  I was very disappointed.  I guess it was not my lucky day.
