Sweet. I bought Chrome for the blades and Dark gun metal gray metalic for the housing. Nice job Jack. That baby looks the spitting image.

RE: Front Turbine Inlet

Where did all those parts come from Jack? They didn't come with your kit, right?

RE: Front Turbine Inlet

ha ha ha.... The outer can came from Nitro. It was some type of stove liner or something. Had to remove a few inches from the middle and add the pads. The inner part is the same piece that I made earlier this year, or was it last year? I don't remember. The blades I had cut were to short so I have to fine a place around here that can cut some more for me. Anyway itís not as nice as the real deal but itís all I got. The total cost including paint should be less than $200. Oh thanks for the compliments.

That would be three Jack, Tumbler and I.

You can make that 4 Kev. Also an avionics electrician. The job was boring as hell.

RE: Front Turbine Inlet

Are a jet mechanic and an avionics electrician the same thing?

RE: Front Turbine Inlet

No. The mecanic does all the mechanical work and the electricians do all the electrical work. Thats the way it is in Ireland anyway. If I needed to check a cable and had to remove a say an engine bracket to get to it, i'd have to get a mechanic to remove the bracket so I can get to my cable and get him to put it back when i was finished. So they trained some of the electricans to be mechanics also to cut down on manpower and inconveinience to the job.

If WP wants to take it they will. Pictures won't make any difference since it's pretty common knowledge who here has replicas... I mean water heaters. If your not posting pics because you think that is keeping you safe from WP then I think you are mistaken. Your best bet would be to stop posting here, change your name and move to another state. You probably have about another year or so before they decide they have compiled enough information to serve papers to everyone at once with warrants to confiscate the property in question.

but I wouldn't worry about it.

RE: Front Turbine Inlet

Tim my water heater is a Rheem.I dont think they care about pics. Whirlpool has had some problems with theirs.

Bought this water heater about 1 1/2 years ago ever since then I had problems with air in the tank. Up until a few months ago Whirlpool didn't have an answer to the problem. Then I head they found out why this is happening it has to do with the anode rod. They said if I want it I have to pay $37.95 plus shipping. If this was the problem all the while why should I pay for the part?

They said it is not cover under the warranty, because it is my water that is causing it. They should adjust the item that they are making to fit the area and not charge you more money because you are living in that area.

RE: Front Turbine Inlet

Don't feel bad Nitro, you have been to my house and know how new it is. I have had to replace the water heater, Air Conditioner, Air Handler, Dishwasher, over the stove Microwave and garage Opener all in the past few months, this sucks.

I almost forgot, Randy drove over my drain field with his big rig and damaged it. Now I need to fix that as well.....
