I bought a van from a business that had sold out and it has an older Prochem Legend and the heat exchanger must have frozen. Any ideas where to get one or have this one repaired? I've attempted to attach a picture. Thanks for any help.
Thanks Richard. I've also thought about just eliminating the heat exchangers and putting in a fuel fired heater. I might just forget about the pump mechanism all together and turn it into an extraction machine. It's 17 years old so I don't want to put a lot of money into it.
I do have one that was collecting dust in our store room. Not sure if it would fit though, it's for a Performer and I'm not familiar enough with the Legend to know if they are same size. Its prior to the SE so that could make a difference too. ???
Does it heat up with just the catalytic? It might just take longer to get to operating temps and may not stay as hot when you flow water hot but if warm water will get you by then maybe no need to stick new parts in an old unit. ???
Thanks Richard. That's really nice of you. You obviously are not the jerk Lockhart says you areJ Just kidding. Gotta get Lockhart in trouble when I can. He leads too charmed a life not too John Olson has ordered me one for a great price. The one you posted the picture of looks the same, but I don’t know if it would fit or not. I’d have to bypass the old exchanger to see if it heats with just the other one as this one leaks like a bass turd.
I've got two Chemtex machines in my shop that came with a van I bought last year. A 20-45 and a 27-47, both with HX like yours. One end of the marine exhaust to to the engine exhaust and the other curls back to return through the frame tube to exit out the front, one on each side.
I've not tried to start them, I'm a diehard 4cyl guy.
You live in beautiful country, I've been there several times.
