GG customer sent me these pics.

Can you Aw29 owners confirm that this is the original CMP made AW?


does anyone have experience with the Screwed and glued PCTi?

The AW29 looks correct. looks identical to mine. Usually the AW29 has a lower profile head than the similar Westpak version.

I've always had a cleaning company we used portables, now using a TM that we had sitting in my brother in laws garage for the past 25 years still brand new less than 1 hour on the clock. We were all in business together and split up, he took what he had and I took what I had, during lookdown we kissed and made up, and he gave it to me. That's where my nightmares started, Over the next few months change the engine, changed the pump and the Murphy gauge and so on. Just rebuilt the first B&S 18hp engine which only had 150 hrs on it. Now looking at the machine which is a Century 400 Avenger 210 I could build it a bit better. I want to expand the cleaning side as I used to have it, but need a couple of TM so as I cannot afford to buy new ones I will build them myself , so I am looking for a dead Panther to rebuild with local parts, as getting parts from the US is a nightmare at the moment, I don't want to invent the wheel, so will base it on a Panther

I've got both a blue Chemtex 20hp Panther and its 27hp orange big brother sitting in my shop. Bought 2 years ago with a van I wanted and haven't had time to work on them yet.

Maybe someday if we have a pandemic I'll have time?

Don't see the purple button...

I think they had problems with the cheap heat exchanger leaking
