Kranzle Pressure Washer Service & Repairs

Postby Car_clean » Sat Aug 03, 2013 7:50 pm

My oil seals had given up the ghost and the oil had gone that nice creamy colour. So I decided to give my Kranzle Pressure Washer a service & repair, I emptied the oil out by unscrewing the bottom bolt. I then started to strip down the Kranzle, removing the pump 1st by undoing the four allen screws located in each corner of the brass pump. Remove the pump by pulling it forward. Once this is removed you can now remove the aluminium plate with the oil seals in by removing the other 4 allen screws. Undo the four screws, together, a couple of turns at a time so not to warp the plate. Once removed you will expose the bearing in the centre. Remove the bearing and clean it up along with the 3 pistons that go through the plate. I used APC to clean them up. Once cleaned and dried I gave all the clean parts (3 pistons and especially the bearing) a coating with 10w 40 oil by just dipping my finger in oil and smearing it round. Clean out where the oil and bearing is as best you can. I just used paper towel for this and some of the new oil. You now need to remove the old oil seals from the aluminium plate. The first time I did this it took me hours and allot of swearing to get them out. Second time I had a secret weapon! A blow torch makes this so easy, just heat a seal at time and remove gently (I used an old screw driver) it should come out with out any trouble. Once you have removed all 3 let the plate cool down and put your new seals in. I put a little oil around the seal and using a socket (from rachet set) pushed them into place. You may have to give them a tap with a hammer just to get them all the way home. Place the plate on an old piece of wood so not to damage it. You can start to reassemble the Kranzle in the reverse order that you took it apart. I did smear a little oil in the centre on the oil seal to give a some lubrication when first started up. Pictures below of the reassembly, as usual didn't think of taking pics before.

that's a top write up there . Ive often wondered how much trouble I could get into by taking apart my kranzle and think its time I did this instead of just changing the milky oil every so often
where is a good place to get the replacement seals and spares???
