I joined MANCHESTERVACS after dismantling a DC40 I “found” on trash day last month. It needed a new motor which I installed a new motor, tested it and it runs great. I assembled the COV hose and it seems to function properly. Then I realized that I was in way over my head. Conceptually I know what has to be done but there’s like half a dozen parts I don’t recognize any more. I’ve searched the internet again and found this post which will give me some help. Can anyone help me with more detailed assembly diagrams? Any help will be appreciated.
HI Man! (found your PM, then found your post, so I'll reply here!) 2.3 or 2.4 Volvo 745?
Well, you've done well getting stuck in! This is (as far as I know) the only post about the DC40 with as much details of its kind on the internet, so it's all you've got! I try to structure the writing and pictures so it's almost follow-able with a few beers, so if you've got the motor back in, you can skip down to the re-assembly part, past the cyclone guff.
The exploded drawings might help (https://manchestervacs.co.uk/DysonForum/index.php/topic,1820.0.html
) but not knowing what you have taken off doesnt help much, All I can say is hopefully if you study the diagrams and pictures, youll work out what you have yet to put together. Otherwise box it all up and send it to Mvacs and they'll nail it together for a fee!
