    CK scrubber support

    I have been stripping down my recently acquired CK to get acquainted with it prior to MOD1. I am rather suprised that the scrubber is only retained by the single centre bolt & that the full length 'floats' ~1/2" above the CL case

    I have seen on another CK a C-shaped support, with the same curvature of the scrubber, that attached to the CL case above the 1st-stage cutouts

    is this a standard part - I saw it on a CK with # 100 lower than mine - or an aftermarket part? if the latter, who makes/sell them?

    thanks

    ~andy

    excuse my rubbish drawing, but something like this:



    just an ali block, shaped to fit the scrubber, to give it a bit of support

    A support like that would be 3rd party or aftermarket mod, as standard the scrubber "hangs" off the centre thread only, some people fit stands to take the weight off, another trick is a 7ltr tank boot cut to fit. Just make sureany mod like that is removable- you need some "wiggle" on the scrubber to unseat it to change the slime

    Ya I have kiss 300 and something...

    it does not have that.. just the two bolts on the head and the one threaded up through the head for the scrubber...

    Ihave a narked at 90 stand to go on my machine as well...not in the pictures from the thread I posted...

    you could make something but I don't see what it will do for you.. maybe help support it a bit.. but will it be a PITA to change the scrubber out with it.???

    Re: CK scrubber support

    I would also agree its a aftermarket mod. I had unit 107.

    Also the picture reminded me to post a warning to all the newer Kiss owners. The two large tapered SS bolts go thru a AL case and AL square bar stock. Unless the materials have been changed lately this results in a very bad dissimilar metal problem which over a short amount of time will cause the bolts to be difficult to impossible to remove. I would urge you to take some proactive action to prevent the grief you will have later when trying to remove these siezed bolts.

    Hmm good info.

    creates Galvanic Corrosion

    I should have thought of this while threading my stainless steel bolt through the aluminum.. but did not...

    I dive all fresh water.. but still... good tip..Will force me to change these or to maybe passivate them..

    I might take the bolts through a phosphate wash or something.


    But I did not think Aluminum and Stainless would create that...???

    John,

    Can you not just use what plumbers call pipe dope. Kinda like a paste they use to help seal plumbing parts that thread together - doesn't dry.

    Re: CK scrubber support

    Hello,

    I think you're trying to solve a problem that does not exist. I haven't heard of any units that have failed due to the construction of the scrubber. I expect if it was a serious problem that there would be messages on the RBW boards about it.

    I'm not an engineer, but it seems to me that the compression of the canister and housing caused by the through bolt provides a very strong and rigid unit. It certainly feels that way on mine. The compression causes a very firm seating of the machines ends of the canister with the head and base assemblies. This is further firmed up and sealed by the end O-Rings. I suspect it is that firm seating which gives it very solid rigidity and strength.

    Sincerely,

    Paul
