Ok.......do you work at Patriot??? lol

top and bottom.......???
skinny end of the hard metal shell top? or bottom.......
There's a plastic disk thing on one end.........
and the rest won't budge.....I've got my gunk stuff on it and in it!!!
Were'nt you the one that said it was easier to change than typing it?????
I took the pump body off......
no problem......
and the back power pack........are we talking about the same bearing gasket or motor mount on the big power pack.....
I'm heading down to see if I can see those........

Patriot/Motor Mounts

No I don't work for them nor have I ever bought anything from them. I just find they list a lot of parts & their site is easy for me to use.

The part you call the power pack, where the wires attach, is the motor. The cradle is held together at one (maybe both) end(s) with two small screws. The motor mounts are rubber rings with metal rings around the outside & lining the inner hole. I have instructions on how to replace them somewhere. I'll try to find & attach a copy tomorrow night.

It was the bearing assembly, the middle component, I could replace faster than typing the "how to".

I found them......

the top and bottom were both thicker than the middles......lol
and I noticed the one on the very end was painted the same color as the pump originally......
why there's a washer there is beyond me????
by the way my pump hangs there.........??
live and learn..........lol.
I'll double check tomorrow though......
Still can't get that one stubborn screw out.....
I just want to take the bearing assembly apart......just to see..........beats cleaning house............lol
Couldn't vacuum today.......I was working on the circulator pump..........now how do I keep my hands from feeling like sandpaper??????
life's good.........

Sunny Weekend

Glad your forecast is for a sunny weekend. I wanted to go fishing this weekend but with forecast seas of 4-7 feet with possible thunderstorms Saturday & 3-5 feet on Sunday, I guess that idea is shot.

Hope you get your parts soon.

Snowed Today!!!

Can you believe it!!!

Guess what............I got my b and g from Pex........
only to receive it after 3 weeks damaged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Had to pay another $82.........for customs......i i i........

So now.........after much searching......I have found a place up here where I can get just the bearing assembly for $105.

Yes, it's more than patriots 85........but by the time I add shipping and customs.......
I could have hired someone to keep me warm..........lol.
Such is life.........

I will decide this weekend if I'm just going to go for the bearing assembly.......I'll have to see if it comes with the body gasket?

It's gonna be summer soon............???
Record cold temps here......maybe not!
Here's to getting it done next week!!!

Sorry to bump an old post.

The repairman just replaced my B&G Series 100 pump with an Armstrong S-25 LV (110116-200). How does this compare with my old Bell Gossett and the Taco 007?



Thanks.

How is it working? If OK, then I think you're good to go. If not, I would call the repairman back.

If you want to compare the technical performance of the pumps, Google for their submittal data or go to the manufacturers' websites. Compare their head-flow curves. A pump's head-flow curve defines how it performs within a hydronic system. Other characteristics, like wet-rotor vs. dry-rotor, don't affect the hydraulic performance. The B&G pump is a three-piece dry-rotor pump. I'm unfamiliar with the Armstrong pump. The Taco 007 is a wet-rotor pump. Google wet-rotor vs. dry-rotor pumps for more info.

I'm wondering why the Taco 007 is in your comparison list? What do you care how it compares to your original pump or its replacement?

B&G pumps are red and Taco pumps are green.
