View Full Version : LF Tunze parts FOUND and HUGE Thanks to Keith, Bugsy, and Christy!!!

Ok this is a serious long shot but...I thought I'd throw it out there.
I was given a Tunze 6261 with controller but it is missing some parts.
It appears that it was once a pump for a Wavebox. I would love to somehow make use of it if I can...since I can't afford a new tunze or vortech.
Wondering if anyone has any broken Tunzes or parts they want to get rid of? I think it's missing a shaft and power supply (Though I am sure I can find a AC/DC that will work) And not really sure how I could mount this thing???

That is the new one piece impeller, have a look inside the hole where it fits in the pump, hopefully you'll be able to fish out a tiny red o-ring and a little black piece that fit on the bottom of the impeller. All you need is the power supply and you're good to go, should run you about $60 or so :biggrin:

You'll need the little bracket piece and swivel arm for mounting

Hey Thanks Christy! It does have the little black piece and the O-ring.
Only I don't understand how that bracket thing in the picture will attach? The attachment is on the side not the back ????And how does it stay on the glass????
Sorry If I sound kinda stupid?? I search but what I find is magnet mounts but they don't look like they would work for this one???????? Does that make sense?:redface::redface::redface:

So this part


slides into the groove (with the little loop to the back of the pump) I've circled:


Then you put the front "grill" onto the pump. Then this part here:


The loop on the swivel arm fits onto the circular piece out front there. Then the whole thing will fit onto a magnet at the back part of the mounting bracket above. You can use a sure grip magnet, it has the proper adaptor or get a tunze magnet. Sounds like Keith has something for ya :biggrin:

If you need more help, just get someone who has a tunze to hook you up with putting it all together. These are pretty specific parts so unless someone has a broken one that is unfixable you can get the parts from J&L. I accidentaly had the swivel arm go down a sink on me and I got a replacement for about $10 I think the bracket is about that much as well. So all in all you could easily get this thing going for less than $100. I bet someone would even build you an acrylic box for it if you wanted to fix it up like a wavebox :biggrin:

THANKS A BUNCH!!:mrgreen:

Ok i have the Parts Christy pointed out as well as a set of magnets also have a extra photo cell if you want it. The only thing i dont have is the power adapter i have a few of the old style but no extras of the new style. Its all yours if you want it. I am sure i could drop it by the shop sometime this weekend if you like.
