Wow!

Wow, that's more involved than I would have thought!

I guess I'd better get busy with the electrolysis tank, and find some bottle jacks somewhere.

I have one of those electronic battery chargers, I wonder if that is good enough, or if it's only trickle... It works on deep cel marine batteries and regular batteries, but it doesn't have a needle guage, just LED lights. It's a large unit, not just a wall wart, so maybe I'll try it on a small basis.

I read somewhere that a kid used a computer power supply, and I have plenty of those lying around, but I can't imagine it has the amps required.

A lot of trips around the table. Each jack could only move a few thousandths before it would bind. The side that finally came loose was cleaned up and re-assembled with the pin so the other side would be pushed out.

The inside of the outer tube was cleaned using a sander belt wrapped around a slotted rod and driven by a drill motor.



Thanks George, I am about to take My front axle off as soon as the weather cools down a bit and your guidence gives me a lot of food for thought.

Different

George,

My front axle looks a lot different that that... The shafts that the steering knuckle rods are enclosed in are much longer than that... Is mine atypical? I have at least 12 inches or more of rusted shaft to break free!

No, Allan. Yours are the more common. The example in the picture is from a lo-boy. I think the difference in length is 7 1/2". The procedure should be much the same.

No, the computer power supplies even though they have both 12v and 5v stages, do not have the amperage required for the tank.

HOWEVER, ifn you were to go to an Army/Navy surplus store and were to be able to find a 12 v power supply used to power radios which have taps, then you should be able to use that. I have been looking.

I currently have one in my Ham shack, but there ain't no way I am using that one - I need it for my old radios.

It is a Stancon power supply rack mountable

I have been using an automatic charger that I bought used for 5-bucks and it has many, many hours on it being used for nothing but My cleaning tank and it has not given me any problems such as burning out.

Got *almost* everything...

Postby allenlook » Wed Aug 11, 2004 6:21 pm

I bought a manual charger, large plastic tub, etc. today, but I can't find TSP *anywhere*.

The Wal*Mart, Agway, Lowes', etc. all carry products that say they are TSP, but on the back they say "substitute - phosphate free" in large or fine print. I don't know what they are, but I don't figure they'll work if they aren't actually TSP?

Where do I get the stuff or something else to use?

Try Arm & Hammer washing soda - found in the laundry aisle of the supermarket. If you can't find that, use baking soda.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
