    More like toast, but not yet fully cremated.
    If it was run while sounding like marbles for that long of a time good luck.

    Here's a cover that needs modification done. Basically just machining off two of the inside lips off for ease of installation. Most of them throughout the panthave been done already. I bet haven't had to do one in 10 years. Valve Team guy said this was a spare that hadn't been done and sitting for a long time. 20210803_101011.jpg

    I hope no one in management had the spheres to act surprised or upset by the failure.

    It's a bit frustrating that I said "hey, it's probably the pump." On day one, but the supervisors insisted on trying every valve/cylinder combination and going over diagrams and schematics for three days before finally saying "we're pretty sure it's the pump."

    At least we finally agreed on that decision and got it out and figured out. At the end of the day I've done my job, done what I was told, and got praise for doing exactly that.

    "it sounded that way for months"

    I couldn't count how many times people have said that to me over the years.

    I'm here every day, why the :censored:didn't you say something --- :frusty:

    I'll smooth the edges after lunch then clean it out real good and be done. Mirror check on opposite side.20210803_104025.jpg 20210803_111108.jpg

    Final update on the hydraulic fun. Total start to finish time was five hours. That's with nobody present having ever taken it apart before and not knowing what we were going to find inside. I think I could do the whole operation in two hours next time as long as it's just changing the filters and putting it back together. The whole unit has been assembled for an hour and runs fine, new filters and the pump runs quiet again. All functions are present and accounted for as well. New pumps will be arriving in two days and then I'll pull it back apart to swap those in, and keep the old ones for emergency backups.

    I'd vote for running the original pumps until failure. Chances are they're better units than whatever the vendor found for replacement.
    Just saying because you mentioned something about the original unit types are 16 weeks out. Put those new ones on a shelf for spares. Read vendor manual if it mentions anything in regards to long term storage.
    :notsure:

    Working in a "small" sawmill, that's been neglected for 6 months, the routine is "when it needs it". I don't agree with it, but I am also the only guy here to do it all. I just got a trainee two weeks ago, so he's helping a bit.

    That's what I wanted to do, but the site supervisor told me he wants it done his way. And ultimately I answer to him, so that's the way I get to do it. I'll enjoy the day I get to make my own choices.

    They do, they just want me to "keep the mill running and try to catch up all the broken/worn out stuff" at the moment. Eventually we'll get this place back to the point of only needing PM's. But for right now I'm dealing with a large amount of worn out stuff that has been modified or hodge podged together and needs to be fixed correctly.

    Brother, I wore those exact shoes -- they suck...

    Hopefully the folks you report to support you, the fact that you got a helper is a positive. At least you have someone who you can train to do things correctly, hopefully he works out.

    And always keep yourself and your trainee safe. I think about these things now having kids that are and will be joining work force somewhere.

    Thankfully they do support me. They understood they took me from a completely different mill that runs different wood and production numbers to a mill that's 15 years dated and in general different.

    The opposite has happened to us. The building used to have ample downtime to repair stuff and keep it in shape. They'd crash a sorter here and there, but nothing extreme. Well now they're running it almost 24/7 and stuff is going past its recommended run time/life. Makes for interesting failures, but upper big wigs don't understand why downtime is increasing. Yea, you're running the shit out of the equipment that wasn't designed for that...:angrygirl:

    The old addage an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure rings true today.

    I've worked for bosses that have all the answers and 10 tons of cure, but not enough sense for an ounce of prevention. All you can do is try.

    I'm learning this buy once cry once thing may have some credence as well. As opposed to buying the cheap one and having it nickle and dime and hassle you to death.

    For most things there are a cheapest/worst and expensive/best option and I've always tried to spend my money somewhere in the middle.

    At my old job the policy over the years became "do a little more with a little less".

    Less people, less time, cheaper materials -- and shot their foot dozens of times because of it. :facepalm:
