[Healeys] Ultrasonic Parts Washer

My harbor freight parts washer just rusted through after 10 years and I need a new parts washer.


I hate these things because frankly, they don’t do anything – it’s just a basin full of detergent,  you still have to do all the scraping, scrubbing etc.


I’m thinking about getting something automated that all I have to do is dump the parts in, and come back later and they are clean, but the transmission and engine cleaners that pro shops have are like $3500.


Does anybody have any experience with ultrasonic parts washers?  I can get one that is about the same size as the crappy old one for about $1k, but before I jump in, I’d like to know how effective they are.

Sounds like a bad condenser to me

I had a pretty perplexing situation once similar to this, turned out the little carbon peg in the distributor cap was crap.  I replaced the cap and it worked after that.

new development

car looses all power, bucks, backfires, catches and drive ok for a bit, then big backfires and bucking, then it dies. almost like a loss of power. it could be an intermittent power loss. Distributor cap looks like . explosions. NOS cap, rotor, points and condenser . Distributor was removed cleaned and re greased.
