The plastic pump body of my parts washer broke a while back (and I've only just managed to get a replacement). I'm wondering if it might be something to do with using Gunk, undiluted, as the cleaning fluid: while this certainly shifts the dirt, it does latex gloves no good at all, so maybe it affects other plastics.

Any suggestions?

Try using the proper fluid that manufacturer recommends - I bought a brand new parts washer and a gallon of fluid two years ago and its still in the box, perhaps this year I might use it and re-build Florence who knows Parts washer fluid Icon_rolleyes

It would seem that any solvent has an issue with latex gloves,nitryl gloves are more resistant to the Gunk or Jizer.As far as your wash tank goes it would seem it is not designed for Gunk,perhaps you could try Jizer or the Comma equivalent(Hyper clean),they are not so strong as Gunk but are also emulsifying agents washable with water.

Mine did the same with Jizer so I don't think it makes much difference.

Interesting. Original instructions say "Fill only with a non-flammable degreaser or cleaning agent, such as Jizer or Gunk". A bit of web searching suggests that there are solvent degreasers, and water-soluble degreasers (which come a bit cheaper). Presumably Jizer & Gunk come into the first category.

Guess I'd better return the Gunk to its tin and buy a couple of gallons of water-soluble.
