  1. Hey guys,

    Well I picked up my AirFlo Stainless Steel salter (8') today and well it needs some elbow grease... No pun intended... My friend (he is dead now) left it sitting with salt on it... 2 years... The motor was just bought before my friend killed himself so the motor is only 2 years old... But many I can't budge it and I have been hosing it down with penetrate all day.

    Can anyone give me some advice on this thing? Anyone nearby that wouldnt mind having a look at it?

    sounds like the starter motors frozen up from siting. No pull cord on it?
     
  6. lol Good question. THe pull cord is broken. It is all the way out and wont retract...

    BTW, my dodge ram this salter is in came from Cape Cod Mass...

    Did you try turn pulley or shaft that mount to engine.

    Did you try remove puller rope cover and use socket to turn flywheel.
     
  8. I cant get the cover off the flywheel because the bolts are so badly rusted from sitting so long without being hosed off.

    I tried to turn the shaft but I cant because the chain and everything is pretty rusted up.

    Can I use a torch on the shaft and chain to try and loosen it?
     
  9. Been working on the salter motor all day. The problem seems to be with the electric clutch. It seems like its stuck engaged. How do I disengage the clutch?

    Anyone know?
