    I have an older Wacker plate tamp. I can hardly make out any other numbers on it but I think that it says Wacker 2. I broke the pulley and it needs the 4 rubber mounting bushings. Does anyone a good parts supplier online? Or any information on this tamp.
    Thanks
    Jim

    You'll prolly need a pneumatic hammer for breaking the isolators loose

    Thanks I may have to try them. I see what you mean about the isolators now.

    Ill tell ya, our compactors are by far the most neglected machinery we own. The guys just today changes the oil in our small wacker... It may have been 3 seasons since that happened. We're those parts broken? And was there a performance increase after replacing them?

    Yes. They wear out. And the rubber breaks

    Mcmaster and Carr has Isolaters a lot cheaper than the supplier would

    Also - the belt should be replaced as they do stretch. On the smaller wackers they're not adjustable. Replacing the belt will really increase the machine's hit.
