Title: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: MVacs on July 18, 2015, 01:52:48 PM
We have a Hoover 119 that we came by.

[attachimg=1]

[attachimg=2]

It doesn't run. We haven't investigated why. It is available "as is".

Anyone who wants it, please contact us (https://shop.manchestervacs.co.uk/index.php?route=information/contact) and give us a bid.

Thats actually quite tempting!

The red writing  i think means its early,  is the royal warrant to king george? Replacement bag and cord sadly,  but would be a fun project...

The handle splits into 3 to make postage easier,  theres a bolt to undo on each section.  If youve still got it about in a week or so when i get paid I may be in touch.  Will share it incase anyone else fancies a crack though.

Did Dave get that 1334 sorted?

Yes, he had it built back up with new bearings ten minutes after speaking to you.  :thumbsup:

Our other chap who was listening said when you was on the phone, "Is that the bloke we call the motor whisperer?"  :))

You know you want it!  ;D

As you are such a forum guru here, it is yours at cost + delivery @ cost if you want it.

The old Hoover is now winging its way to Mr Beko!

I hope he will find time to make a topic (or extend this one) on him bringing it back to life.  :-*

Ooooh

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-2uLaJffsof4/VbEjkrwlTEI/AAAAAAAAnz8/oX840hyNJ4A/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

The cable has seen better days, but luckily isn't original, so will be removed asap and a better cable fitted

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-tpTZ-1gtuks/VbEjnTblo6I/AAAAAAAAn0M/MV66ykodALw/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

This isnt burnt, but where the old tape has bled into the cable

The bag surprised me, didn't know it had a Hoover branding on. Must mean it's a genuine replacement

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-n2hS1jgWxKI/VbEjr2rlJQI/AAAAAAAAn0k/vyjqGtQMnDY/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-r4qegSBdy0A/VbEjtvbRncI/AAAAAAAAn0s/GcMvaNHrOQQ/s576-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Normally this lettering is faded or battered, is great that it's so clean!

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Cg1qeJFdNcY/VbEjvNOwymI/AAAAAAAAn00/Q_RN6jceQ8o/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Will see if the serial number is dateable

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-GjAl3UjICfc/VbEjwv5-d8I/AAAAAAAAn08/EtByRshYTnA/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Had an inkling of what the issue might be, so bottom cover off, quite clean tbh, but It's probably been cleaned out in the last 30 odd years to fit the cable

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kum-sNFNRy4/VbEj0LptyfI/AAAAAAAAn1M/hSfJ669NzCg/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Switch cover off

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-88NXwlTYNDk/VbEj3QFHu7I/AAAAAAAAn1c/NCewi7Cx0IQ/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

The switch doesnt click, so I removed it, bridged the connections together and....


....



....



Runs like new! I lobbed the bag on and had a proper go. TBH all it needs is the bag emptying and cleaning and a new belt, runs fantastically!


More soon!!

Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: beko1987 on July 24, 2015, 12:30:27 PM
Used a magic bit of cable! Means to turn it off it needs to be unplugged but thats a minor thing!
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: Madrat on July 24, 2015, 01:03:16 PM
That switch is so old I bet it can be fixed easily.
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: beko1987 on July 24, 2015, 01:28:30 PM
I did look at it, and whilst it could, it's held together by 2 long, very tiny rivets that probably had Hoover tool 65894 to fit. I'd get it apart, but not sure how I'd get it back together. By the time I've found 2 bolts and nuts small enough I may as well take a collector up on his offer of a working switch!

I did have one last year, from a scrap 119 I had but they got sold. I do keep telling swmbo I'm better not selling anything as it'll come in handy one day! Do have the came still from that 119 somewhere so will replace the cable on this with that, it's white but not ruined...

Had an hour alone earlier, so grabbed the Crapramaster and the 119

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-QpEe9kHqADU/VbOI4t5SK2I/AAAAAAAAn28/11ZKQOS9pFo/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

and emptied the bag!

Turned it inside out

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-vXXEVdLpK3Y/VbOI6vsddQI/AAAAAAAAn3E/SuS7rk7JYNs/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

I dont think this has been vacced out for a while

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-9ghQBiM9Wpc/VbOI8RloOZI/AAAAAAAAn3M/jIcqXswcbK0/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Went over and got the worse off with the bleed valve open to stop the nozzle sticking to the bag, then a few passes with the bleed valve closed to lift the dust out of the bag.

Had a look under the insulation tape around the bottom of the bag and found a small hole

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-T-J45NEr4JM/VbOI-ON4KvI/AAAAAAAAn3U/lai6KaPj8Xw/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

I put the tape back on and left it...

Had a look at the belt next

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kFkxEWUAQLA/VbOI_ih0HyI/AAAAAAAAn3c/qqphw6p1Ols/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Eva and SWMBO came back from where they had been, so I got my 119 belts and Eva counted them up

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-VGPF2s8HAVo/VbOJBf68M3I/AAAAAAAAn3k/EwWSrNg8zdM/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

The old one wasnt too streched, but a little bit perished

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-DOWbvTKlye8/VbOJD7yE-0I/AAAAAAAAn4Q/sijylO07__g/s1024-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Brushroll was missing one tuft, but nice and long which is nice

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-UvvSX0Y0si0/VbOJFu_b7oI/AAAAAAAAn30/CbIoklFUnsM/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

it works MUCH better now the airflow has somewhere to go and the belts not slipping!


and now it sits next to the broken DC18, laughing at it because the 18 is pretty much written off at <10 years, whereas this is probably coming up to 60 years young.

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-gGmalDOw57M/VbOJIgyCxaI/AAAAAAAAn4E/OSoXTzy2yu8/s576-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Hope to get more done later, will wash the bag too, but probably not in the machine

Right, here we go then!

First up, I tended properly to the bag. It fits onto the end from the inside

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-VWXGUPFA3dE/VbzUbXQeXHI/AAAAAAAAonE/QiPqak__Trk/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Turn the bag inside out, then pull the fold out and some old string is visible

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-7qB9fZ-ewKw/VbzUZ7ryYpI/AAAAAAAAom8/9vYkT-IHR0A/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Snip snip

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-8Sf-Odeymlc/VbzUYQXyd4I/AAAAAAAAo8Y/-lgC7giB_-8/s1024-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

and the bag connector pulls out

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-zfxGL-VyifA/VbzUWQCtoBI/AAAAAAAAoms/phdAY6bBAOw/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Didnt fancy putting the bag through the washing machine, as it may have taken the lettering off. So I soaked it/agitated it in a bucket of warm water with washing up liquid 3 times, then rinsed well.

The first bucket was like soup

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-7QpB7NiREw0/VbzUSqWT5JI/AAAAAAAAomc/ipWDhS45V54/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

I took the bag clip and gave it a good cif

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-njMm0up2Muo/VbzURZ3J-BI/AAAAAAAAo8o/l0dyG_MmtSY/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-CinjvuKJ2eg/VbzUPU3fYgI/AAAAAAAAomM/hq752wa-54A/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Then a polish with g3 by hand, which put some shine back into the paint

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-rQLTL8Hx6Ak/VbzUOIJfiVI/AAAAAAAAomE/087fO1QkW3o/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Onto the machine now

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-elNIAoty1IY/VbzUMtupuqI/AAAAAAAAol8/CKxe3GUbu4s/s576-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

And the plug

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-2Hq_Z-mEQiU/VbzUHdsbmII/AAAAAAAAolk/aq9GRmR-qbc/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Could possibly be as old as the machine itself

Plug went in for washing...

Out with the handle bolts now

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-PQqIUaccmCU/VbzT-pV_GCI/AAAAAAAAok0/0qQP67PM1n8/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

These two plates hold the cord to the handle

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-HQrpptt1czA/VbzT76O_H5I/AAAAAAAAokk/sCQwnxLbzwU/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

The handle grip was very loose, and just pulled off

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-G6Ivoc5Pk_4/VbzT3nSgSFI/AAAAAAAAokU/dFL9Nzrc5TY/s576-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

This part holds the cord onto the handle at the bottom

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-XSKSugcTAJ4/VbzT18XoLfI/AAAAAAAAokM/vkb092LsOWM/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Unbolted

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-v0mHjiBmsgc/VbzT0R9Z6PI/AAAAAAAAokE/NkbPYJGGK4Q/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

This part locates the handle in the fork

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-MIdp0nVDP-0/VbzTyXfOOiI/AAAAAAAAoj8/4nJn3fsZRPk/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

The mains cable is clipped to the inside of the handle fork with 2 clips

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-xkudlYOuz4c/VbzTwrbSAhI/AAAAAAAAoj0/oHGhDYUlpKI/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

and enters the machine at the bottom

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-77Zc3T0hIkc/VbzTtZjH4tI/AAAAAAAAojk/wsykrYhNT9o/s576-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-LGUr107FKxY/VbzTqL8AGOI/AAAAAAAAojU/CHawM0mm7p4/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Next job was to split the machine. 4 screws later and

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ifUfWZDOWwA/VbzTmJA-b-I/AAAAAAAAojE/E3CFe-TGs44/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

The handle fork unbolts from either side

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-LdhVtF-O2Hg/VbzTj5S2dTI/AAAAAAAAoi8/Dk0M3AYG_C8/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Th_mZ0rrX3E/VbzTiIxjFpI/AAAAAAAAoi0/7UP5zHERiJE/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

The handle is sprung from this spring

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-N_Lsuqx-G1I/VbzTgVc1tsI/AAAAAAAAois/7HUzU7dfUdM/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Once unbolted the handle pulls off

2 of the rivets were broken on the handle, although it's still solid

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-PgogoOeRfwU/VbzTYnUUicI/AAAAAAAAoiM/dqXdfDlrAIA/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

These two tiny peices of tube are spacers for the handle fork

Which is held under tension by rotating it up and against a little stop, which taps out of the axle

The bearing isnt in too bad order, which is good as I havent got any spares, and a replacement would need to be riveted back in

I removed it all, and asked the question, which no one could answer, so have left it out for now. Could possibly be an earth wire, I need to check it out

The main housings were cleaned thoroughly with Cif, then polished by hand a few times with g3, which put some shine back on

The housing was in remarkably good condition under the decades of paint scrapes, tape residue around the bag connector and general filth.

Looking at the coil though, the wires were starting to show their age

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qsPhNzfNtgo/VbzRWCekoxI/AAAAAAAAoZ0/muLIv5MszCM/s1023-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

So I cut the old fraying ends off, sleeved the wires with heatshrink and fitted some better connectors (which turned out to be wrong, so i found some better ones

Hi beko: Top write up as usual, the only niggle I've got is the crimps you used. They just don't look right on a vintage machine & take up too much room in the connection block, have you considered using non insulated terminals & heat shrink where needed ?.
They're readily available, just as easily crimped on & look much better.
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: beko1987 on August 02, 2015, 09:28:05 AM
I know what you mean,  I did think of just tucking the ends of the wires under the terminals,  but thought that would be worse.  I had to crimp the terminals vertically too so they fitted into the blocks.

May have a look at that later,  would it be ok with the ends of the wire tucked under the scrrws?

I had to sack off the coil wire terminals,  they were only held on with 3 or 4 wire strands,  and I couldnt get the heat shrink on with them fitted.

You can form the end of the wire into a terminal, strip the insulation of the core back & twist the strands together. Slip a small piece of heat shrink over the end, use a small screwdriver with a blade the same size or slightly larger than the terminal screw & wrap the wire clockwise around the screwdriver, now twist the flying end of the wire 1 turn clockwise back around the core to form an eye terminal & cut off any excess strands.
Slip the shrink down over the wrap you just made & shrink it down, when you remove the screwdriver, you should have a small eyelet formed in the end of your wire.
Believe me, that was a lot harder to try & describe than it is to actually do. Best thing to do is practice on some old wire a few times first. Once you've done a few, you'll find it easy.

Non insulated terminals & a basic crimper are cheap enough on ebay

If you want to use up your insulated crimps but keep it looking more original, Strip the wire as you would normally.
Slip a small piece of heat shrink over each core, now crimp on a normal crimp.
Use a small snips to cut off the coloured insulation on each terminal, now slip the shrink down onto the terminal and shrink in place.
You've now got terminals that look more like the original thing & they take up less room.

I used to do that, but then I used to flash the loop I had created with solder to make more of a hard terminal. That stopped any stray strands from sticking out as the screw is nipped up and just felt nicer to me.  :icon_nod:

Post by: Tech12 on August 02, 2015, 02:06:54 PM
Yep: I do that myself if I'm forming wire terminals, didn't suggest it to beko as he doesn't do soldering yet.
The other thing is, there's a lot of discussion in certain areas about doing that. Apparently nowadays the thinking is that the heat hardens the wire & makes it more brittle.

I think ill try,  will certsinly loop the wires,  theres just enough length on the coil ones! Will do it when I get a new cable for it,  need to reposition the outer guard too as its too high but will save that for another day,  as the cable i want is quite expensive!

Sorry,  Ive spied some lovely cloth covered brown cable on ebay! And my other 119 and possibly 262 could do with some! A project for another day though!

Hi beko: Before buying on eBay, you might want to take a look at WWW.sinolec.co.UK they can supply a lot of different cloth covered flexes. Prices look pretty good too.

Yesterday afternoon, I ran the old girl round upstairs, and emptied my DC01 Absolute+ in the process...


Worked very well, it does need a MUCH longer cable on it though, but at least it's safe for now!

The bag needed emptying though

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-af4n8Lk5rk4/Vb8nseRiTgI/AAAAAAAApfM/-lLa__UvRSw/s512-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Then a quick vacuum off

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-TFdZzhp0ilo/Vb8nt5qOiPI/AAAAAAAApfU/DEUohBtO6y4/s800-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

Much better!

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kbcPzLqzT6w/Vb8nvbQtL9I/AAAAAAAApfc/jBgtHEBFzw4/s800-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg)

I then spent 20 minutes buffing the wax off that I applied the previous day

Lovely! I was up in the loft last night (forgot to put this up there too...) and had a look at my other 119. The paintworks not as good as this one tbh, but it does need a full refurb tbh. And since it has it's original bag, toolkit and all the paperwoek, even the receipt, it probably will get it's turn on a refurb! It too needs a new cable as it's still the original, and it's very crazed all over, need to have a proper look at it and make the call!

Either way, job jobbed for now! Thanks for selling it to me Mvacs! Hope you get more old chod through your doors!

No probs, unfortunately I've used up the roll I had & don't use enough of it to buy another. Now if it was Black rubber covered I go through loads of that & the cheapest place to buy it is TLC.  Do you have any other restorers close to you ? You should get the flex a bit cheaper  if you did a bulk buy between you.

If you want it, I would.  Would feel bad about the cable though,  it does let it down but ultimatly stops you possibly being killed...

The box it came in is still in the shed too...
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: MrIan on August 14, 2015, 12:34:43 PM
The original plug for that 119 would have been the adjustable 2 pin 'HOOVER' round rubber one. The one that was also supplied with an adaptor to plug into the light bulb socket so you could just remove the lightbulb in a room and plug the vac in !!!!!! oh the good old days.
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: beko1987 on August 14, 2015, 12:46:07 PM
I have one of those for my other 119. Did try to fit it a few years back but didn't. Even made up a 3 pin plug to light pendant lead so I didnt have to plug it into the ceiling. Couldn't work out which way the pins went for L and N so gave up.

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-P0iVDOVPl-g/Uf7JdWzddOI/AAAAAAAALvU/XEHNzRJqXZI/s512-Ic42/IMAG0542.jpg)

Which goes with this one, which is sadly not in as good condition as Mvacss old one

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-DlN9AjI8-3A/Uf7JZ5g462I/AAAAAAAALvE/s1bw8Fg9XSQ/s512-Ic42/IMAG0539.jpg)

Does have this though

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-VqmyI4jWcHI/Uf7JbUQZ_PI/AAAAAAAALvM/jQzqZWOVmrU/s720-Ic42/IMAG0540.jpg)

and these

Must get it down and give it the same treatment as the other 119, it's been fettled but not stripped and overhauled to the same level of detail! Will be VERY careful washing the bag though, its bloody rare nowadays!
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: MrIan on August 14, 2015, 12:59:51 PM
wires connect either way because the plug can fit into the adaptor or 2 pin wall socket either way and then also the light bulb adaptor can fit in either way into the light fitting, so there's no way to ensure L-L N-N .
Even to this day though quite a few vac manufacturers have live and neutral reversed so a single pole switch is switching just the neutral.

Yes the original style 119 brown bags are rare, I too have a 119 with original bag also a 375 and 1224 also with original bags. Got too much really ie Hooverette / Constelation / Starlight / a hard box/bag junior (1346 style case but with solid body) / 70s Convertible / 262 / 612 oh and I must have at least 20 x 1334 / 46 the list goes on and on !!!!!!!
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: beko1987 on November 16, 2015, 08:36:06 AM
I found this whilst trying to find the dating system for the 1334 as per the Dyson Arms thread, this is for the 119 though

Model 119 Hoover Junior, Bronze & Dark Brown, Produced October 1950 - December 1956
Serial Numbers:
K 10,000 = October 1950
K 100,000 = january 1951
K 200,000 = June 1951
K 300,000 = November 1951
K 400,00 = May 1952
K 500,000 = December 1952
K 600,000 = July 1953
K 700,000 = December 1953
K 800,000 = May 1954
K 900,000 = December 1954
KG 100,000 = March 1955
KG 200,000 = August 1955
KG 300,000 = January 1956
KG 430,430 = July 1956 Production End

So that places this one at the very beginning of the run between Oct 1950 and Jan 1951 being 08xxxx!

Hi Chums!

So, through a lesser known delivery service called Shitely, I met someone's sister in a layby by the M40 in the pissing rain earlier, and came home with this bucket of magnificence!

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-pKLnbzUHFtQ/Vx03LWsXmTI/AAAAAAAAyvI/_dkGfhtsCUs_C9pSvSTB_WXr7G1AiVnNACCo/s512/upload_-1)

I plugged it in and it ran like crap!


So I had the bag out

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-LZuK4QGDIFA/Vx03HZZaOmI/AAAAAAAAyvE/c9dOLWqed48YIUbK_H9VkrPiQg9wiDM9gCCo/s800/upload_-1)

So I grabbed the Miele and my small tiny hose for it and got cracking

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-M6Yb4IHkSUU/Vx03EaVpJ5I/AAAAAAAAyvQ/YuV5fspwfaQ6T1f4dM_wdgaxfUzRBpnngCCo/s800/upload_-1)

Then broke the big guns out

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-9-kTO1EFVYU/Vx03ASlrVMI/AAAAAAAAyu4/QjQbBsiSnuYrYFoVj6o4SXqsUtMpcubmgCCo/s800/upload_-1)

With the bag clean, I popped to the shed and got a new belt, I got this pack with the pumpkin junior from ebay

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-yysVbLpujEs/Vx029uGVd9I/AAAAAAAAyvY/Y5PMEfNwmjAS20H595JuwvqG7EUYEyyIwCCo/s800/upload_-1)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_NFV9XfoQb8/Vx023_Vt4zI/AAAAAAAAyvQ/UZ579I733KQoP0-qRjcUjKDOrIOijaYGgCCo/s800/upload_-1)

and it ran much better. It's main problem is that one of the brushroll retaining springs has snapped, so the retaining emchanism flops about, and on the backwards stroke is pulled onto the brushroll causing the brushroll to jam a bit.

But, I had a plan, and popped into the loft...

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-X5ddKzbWieI/Vx021bekrvI/AAAAAAAAyvM/XvjjBQT17RQIe3aQbxnQEgO22Zk17T4XwCCo/s512/upload_-1)

Behold, the Mvacs 119, in all it's blurry glory! Can you spot the difference?

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-7VZYrUE_pNw/Vx02y1kdfqI/AAAAAAAAyvM/fdsb6E2FNOoFv3RJPxAgKZ_JclW1rRF5gCCo/s800/upload_-1)

Both have the same genuine Hoover replacement grey 1960's bag too

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ya-ec3bBi_c/Vx02wSjFH5I/AAAAAAAAyvM/K37ezuiB1rASk3STdoXIE2qU4ojKTPwzQCCo/s800/upload_-1)

I wanted to swap the handle bits and cable onto the mvacs 119, so off with the top part, the AS one was a bit worn*

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_OOlU0ZGjy4/Vx02uVilWGI/AAAAAAAAyvM/PsALkSfz2LwDpmFddaDOdQePKoY5ZFK-ACCo/s800/upload_-1)

but better condition paint wise

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-cp7chR96Cms/Vx02q4HLsPI/AAAAAAAAyvM/OI5WegSWyqwINGZjagAliP0J-X0SmqXsQCCo/s800/upload_-1)

Peeled off the first layer of tape

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-GuiLJO7v_gI/Vx02nAEWtYI/AAAAAAAAyvM/AUK0JB4Q7VYr0zVZ36k6MpUfGPjPZcBsgCCo/s512/upload_-1)

Then the second

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-VD56bczvCKo/Vx02jRWb_9I/AAAAAAAAyvM/jmBtrnLx0fk8GjpjtRw5sG2pYiOPyc3DwCCo/s512/upload_-1)

then under the third discovered that the rubber had gone completely broken

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-JYmN2DAbB3c/Vx02fpz3ZQI/AAAAAAAAyvo/7ElHbOQG44MXpntfZBOjUZRXDxHosnuOQCCo/s800/upload_-1)

So I chissled it off with a screwdriver

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-M20FCAlB5Uo/Vx02bm5mo9I/AAAAAAAAyu8/dPZL8iHr1qo1d-KX_9BpQxETk7RVDLsUgCCo/s800/upload_-1)

Whilst I soaked the other handle to remove the rubber, I had a look underneath, and was met with this beautiful mottled bakelite

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-hWxdcDvX-ZQ/Vx02XumxcbI/AAAAAAAAyu8/6ui3JRslSqgDR-2fHze1NZqUsMj-PF9FACCo/s800/upload_-1)

Wonder why it was different

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_gFaurhnDVo/Vx02Tyt8gKI/AAAAAAAAyu8/nC9q0nDRTlcoscGKlhk2GgQBUmIe3vLaQCCo/s800/upload_-1)

Next step is to unwire the new one

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-AMgLDboZ7vc/Vx02Sb78DkI/AAAAAAAAyu8/lRthqBLur_Mkrth9bMI3ePWGXJ6whxGQACCo/s800/upload_-1)

then I found this whilst poking all the crap out the way. This was all the more worrying by a video that will be in the next post, it's only on 43% atm, and I cant be bothered to not post this!

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kqzJIJCnsvY/Vx02QhfnTjI/AAAAAAAAyu8/2ElGxT4j3FUC9HIcm3Pu813J77zVjJUvwCCo/s800/upload_-1)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-oFqRUlUW7Ac/Vx02NYujjhI/AAAAAAAAyu8/XXHl9iUA1CANUNIIJZidVKJqyUrbrgnyACCo/s800/upload_-1)

The outer sheath on the nice original cable was cracked, so had to come off

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_ZZIdNUMGDQ/Vx02LuBpksI/AAAAAAAAyu8/ZEoyIDYLdX4QyMTCBMjcWWRh8R2aVitAACCo/s800/upload_-1)

Then I re-terminated the old cable, by god this stuff is a bastard to strip back

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-EEZlDJHBakw/Vx02KGd32iI/AAAAAAAAyvw/XTvSZ77C8ggwMDA5p5ImmfBYRuG80DHyQCCo/s800/upload_-1)

One for the plug pervs

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0yOoh1Pr9DU/Vx02GFTzBVI/AAAAAAAAyuU/JZDJlBqDUFcXGmrsZA8lshXkIsoC9NaywCCo/s800/upload_-1)

I wired the ncie cable on to the nice 119, and fitted both handle segments, because they were better than the other ones, and improved my nice red lettered 119 by lots. Just a nice, original bag to find now!

Continuing the improvement on this 119, I bought a box of tools for a tenner posted recently, and finally got them out of my car and into the loft on Friday

No idea if the hose holds air though, it's a bit crunchy when bent, but it looks good. I also have a duplicate 119 instruction manual which can now go with this, so all I need to find now is an original bag! One day...
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: dysondc16 on May 16, 2016, 02:20:37 PM
That tool set is in fantastic condition, and for only a tener! You seem to have very good luck with these things.

I can't stand how delicate those old hoses are, especially when fitted to a cylinder. Makes the entire machine useless.

We have a similar model in the US, the 115. I'm also on the lookout for a nice one. i currently have a cosmetically crappy one with a bunch of replacement parts which I still use from time to time.
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: beko1987 on May 21, 2016, 02:25:13 PM
It was a bit spontaneous! It's not 100% complete, but good enough for display! I've not tested the hose for air tightness yet, and possibly never will!

Once I find an original bag, it will look nice in the photo's!

Post by: MVacs on November 23, 2017, 08:58:23 PM
Well, courtesy of Mr Beko, this machine made its way back to us recently (very nice that was of of him too). When a few finishing bits are done it will reside in our museum.

Although I plugged it in and it doesn't work! Can't be much, are you short of fuses down your end, Sam?  :chuckle:

But here's a funny thing: Sam sent it back up with the non gen blue bag (https://www.instagram.com/p/BbhYE-7glPC/) on there and original brown ones are very thin on the ground. I haven't seen one of these since this one a couple of years back when the topic was started. Then, out of the blue, two days after this one arrived back, we got a call from someone who asked if we wanted an "old Hoover Junior" for free as we were closer than the tip. We said yes and it was dropped off the next day.......

What's the chances?

The original plug for that 119 would have been the adjustable 2 pin 'HOOVER' round rubber one. The one that was also supplied with an adaptor to plug into the light bulb socket so you could just remove the lightbulb in a room and plug the vac in !!!!!! oh the good old days.

Well, the one we had donated not only is an identical 119, but has a decent original brown bag on there (that is needed), but it also still has the light switch plug fitting as described by Ian above. So between the two, we'll end up with a very original Junior 119.  :thumbsup:
Title: Re: Hoover 119 Available
Post by: beko1987 on November 23, 2017, 09:05:52 PM
Fantastic!

No idea why it doesn't work though, all I can think of is I pinched the fuse for something else, always borrow a known working one... It ran the last time I used it!


You'll have to post it back for fettling!

Nice score on the bag and plug! Always said the only way to get a good bag nowadays is with a scrapper machine! You could buy a cheapo table lamp and use the bayonet plug for demo's too! I keep meaning to get my nice 119 together, I can now I don't have two!

You gonna get the spares machine running enough to use as a shop floor demo? Pop the genuine but not proper bag on, new brushroll bearings and a belt and it should be ok!

Nope. One good one from the pair. The rest of the other one will go for spares.
