Vacuum motors


I have way too many different vacuum motors.  I snapped this apart trying to pull the spring out.  The right picture shows what it is supposed to look like.


These are my other weird types I found today.  The motor on the right has a spring you have to press down to insert the brushes.  4 out of my 4 motors were different today (the other was a lamb motor).

Hunter’s Creek Auto Wash / aka Car Wash

My GPS said “Gatorland Carwash” at 14513 Gatorland Drive, Orlando, FL. but the name does not really matter.


First picture is the front view and the second picture it from the entry road next to a Flex-Serve.



Front view: I like the glass block and the road sign.



Vending:  I like the “Suggestions” box and it is interesting that they replaced the Dilling & Harris Vend-Master product door.  They replaced the plastic with metal.


Back view:  First picture show painted arrows on the ground which is a good idea.  I just doubt it would help.



Bay:  Some interesting notes are the crappy foam brushes and the garbage can in every bay.  I love the large timer conversion.


Automatic:  PDQ Laser 4000 had an interesting purge setup in the automatic.  Not really sure what or why it was purging though.


Vacuums:  They has some weird vandalism problems?  I actually had someone steal my gun off my Fragramatics fragrance vacuum before.  They unscrewed the gun and took it.

Have you ever run out of chemicals?

I picked the 2 best “foam brush chemicals” and took 25 fl oz of each of the diluted chemical and added 5 gallons of water.  The winners were 3)  Dis™h Detergent Original Scent (dish cleaner 50 ounces) and 4)  Perfect 10 Black Currant Bodywash  (bodywash for your body 25 ounces).  I lost the pictures for number 4 but number 3 was the best the dish detergent.
