Got the parlor vacuum pump mounted finally. First Josh dropped the vacuum check valve assembly made of PVC and broke off the blow-off valve. Got that glued well enough to test run, but need to go get some new PVC fittings later. Then the pump won't come on. Check the breaker & it isn't resetting. Found another used breaker, put it on and still nothing. Looked closer at the breaker & the clips where it connects to the bus bar is tweaked open. Bend the ears tighter, and wha-la! Pump runs slick as glass and quieter than it did the day we bought it used at an auction. I can lean on the pump while running & talk normally carry on a conversation.
Need to pick up a new 30 amp breaker & PVC soon as possible so I can put this puppy back in service.
