I finished my front knuckle rebuild with new Longfields, ALL new bearings, new brass spindle bushings and Marlin seals - now I have a parts washer for sale. It worked great. It's about 44 inches wide, so even the long side axle fit in it. It has a shelf to support parts above the solvent pool and comes with gloves and some brushes. Pump works good, too.

Call me if you want to come get it - $75 (trunion bearings and wiring harness not included!)

Poor color quality from the camera! It's red and blue...

Saw one new on Northern Tools site (no extras or solvent) for $119. Solvent is definitely petroleum based, but it came with it when I bought it, so I don't know what it is.

If the price seems out of line, make an offer.

Timm, go ahead. I'd like one, but I'm not trying to put an engine in my truck at the moment.

but I'm not trying to put an engine in my truck at the moment.You should, it needs one :lmao:

J/K...

As I was telling Timm and Ricardo today, I have no freeking idea how I EVER got along without one for so many years. We were cleaning parts with spray brake cleaner instead of washing them in a proper cleaner and blowing them dry.

Everyone who does much mechanical work on their rigs needs a parts washer. I bought my 20 gallon unit at Tool King for well under a C note. I did (well) spend a little extra at my local NAPA to replace the nozzle at the end with a brush.

I'll drain and strain the fluid and put it in buckets if you want. I can help deliver. It was great for my front end needs and I would love to keep it, but I won't need it for several more years...I hope
