View Full Version : Leak at bottom fixed

I was going to reply to my previous thread where I asked for help but it was closed so I will do it here. Posted this morning that I needed help and Tom very shortly after asked for my number. In a few minutes I was on the phone with him and as soon as I started talking to him I knew it wouldn't be long till I was running again. Well Tom the oring may have had a little grease I couldn't tell for sure. Anyway I greased it and still had the leak. Took it back down and changed the oring. It is running now. It is easy to work on. You did a great job making a machine an ordinary man can work on and fix. Wouldn't get rid of it at all if I couldn't get another. Thanks for the help. I love my Shoebox. Ben

I have no idea how that thread got closed. Anyway glad to hear you are back up and running. Sounds like there was a nick in the oring messing things up.
