Hoover turbopower junior
« on: August 09, 2015, 08:30:13 PM »
Got my first ever turbopower, well not yet, won it but it's in Boston 4.50 :boggleeye:  luckily we are going to Rutland water for 4 days at the end of August and will be taking a trip to Skeggy for the day and the seller is OK with holding on to it, Mrs Madrat just gave me the look  :underchair:  Has tools and instruction book  ;D

It's the only turbo I want to be honest and only because it has the junior name on it  :chuckle:

Fair enough!

Watch for cracking around the bottom trunnion.  They do like to go there! I hope you find a rebuild thread around here for one...

Got all the hoover service manuals from 1986 to 1997 if you ever need a scan of one!

I thought I did a rebuild thread! Was hiding in my long forgotten about blog. Get more of an audience posting on here, and its so much easier than the blog editor!

Well picked up the junior on Saturday evening and I thing the lady selling it has had it from new, it's in very good used condition and very well looked after. I decided to fire up the generator today and give it a try,  it works very well,  I will post some pictures when I get home.

Excellent! Sounds tidy.  Always nice to get a backstory for machines too!

Most dyson and other projects are on hold at the moment, I'm sat waiting for delivery of a new shed for the bikes and garden stuff, Just told it was an am delivery between 9 -1  :D  :angryman:  :'(   Then the old shed has to come down, new one up, fitted out, painted electric fitted etc. Then I have to sort out my shed so I can get dishwasher in and then I can start on the dysons again.   Have to keep Mrs Madrat sweet sometimes  :underchair:
