5.7 litre Chevy V8, not derated.
I’m gonna quote myself
“ leave it bone stock and it will have all the heat and vac you will ever need”
All the late model (2004 -2010 ) that I have seen have 56 blowers. The 1200 HV is pretty cool. Most have the Vulcan post HX also ( think Butler Max heat and Max vac). The resale plummeted when WM tanked. Or at least I assume it did based on how cheap some sold back in 2014-2016. So you can still find some slamming deals on relatively low hour units.
help me with that one, Lee
It's not the engine ..they're massively OVER powered
It's cutch/belts/driveline where problems manifest, right???
AND...what ya'll talking about "derated"???
What's that mean??
I was going off lil blurb at bottom but its not the most detailed specs, I'm now assuming its still direct drive not slide in?
I bought a used 2003 four years ago and had it about a year as a backup, half second truck. It had the 56 and Vulcan. I sold it when I bought a new truck 2 years ago and the current owner is still using it daily
2 7/8 OD
On that 2000 can you run both blowers at the same time and have them connected ? As in waste tank connected to run in series?
They both run in parallel.
I'm sure the design was designed to run two wands. Is there more stress on the drive chain running two blowers?
And what kind and size serpentine/single clutch?
What is the lift set at?
Designed for two entirely independent wands.
6rib x 56" belt, one Ogura clutch.
My belt is 6 rib 120 inches!
White Magic uses a separate belt just for the machine. Driven off a pulley attached to the front crankcase pulley.
Want to buy a worn out 2002? I already had to pull the solution line off it for the butler. Not sure if I'll keep it going or not but I will be buying new solution line fotthe butler and put the other back on the WM.
2002 is like new for the old guys.
I'll get back with ya on that. Still not sure if I'm ready to give it up. I've grown attached to it.
ya i got a little wart on the side of my neck like that!
I think it's grown attached to you.
