Grant-Dillon-Harris appears to be out of business. Are there Manuals available for Dillon-Harris Self Wash Equipment?

Dilling-Harris is now just GinSan Industries.

Is there a particular piece of equipment for which you're needing a manual?

As recently as 6 mos ago, there was Dilling Harris in Dallas. But had a 3rd name to it. Can't remember the 3rd name...maybe "Grant"...? Also, there a company in Dallas tat has equipment for D/H. Josh Handyside is the owner of said company.

Yes the third name was Grant. That name was from another company, Grant Sales, that used to be a Ryko distributor. Harry Bauge was the owner. He turned that over to his daughter and her husband, and they managed to take one of the largest Ryko distributors down the drain. Not satisfied with that, he then acquired D/H and managed to take that down the drain. I used to work there.

I meant as far as getting parts, timers and such.
Very few Dilling-Harris timers, part, etc. cross to anything we use. I routinely get calls for things from Dilling-Harris that we don't have a cross for and, to be honest, no one does. My recommendation to anyone with DH equipment is to rebuild it or replace it. They're gone.

Be careful dealing with these people. Don’t ever give them money up front.

Dilling and Harris. Tom Dilling is still around I think ..Back in the day I went in their place several times I could never afford much in there prices tags on that stuff was off the charts. Now that I own a bunch of the old relics it's really weird because you can't take a bay door off of one bay door and put it on another bay door inevitably it will not fit They are all like cut custom one piece at a time so you better put the door back off the when it came from.

Well you have a real POS. That design is one of the worst I’ve seen. Even if you get everything working, your customers will still get confused, and they are the ones you want to please. Getting new different doors makes sense, but suppliers are giving delivery dates months out. Can’t believe they used painted steelGood luck. You’ll need it.

Is it really anyone else fault but your own that you haven't upgraded your equipment in 50 years?

In the early days of Dilling-Harris/Ginsan(late 80s early 90s) they tried communication over the power wires. I think they called it the 3000 system. It was really touchy and never really worked consistently. What you have is Dilling-Harris's attempt to revive it in the late 90s/early 2000s. You really need to stop wasting your time and money trying to keep it working and upgrade your equipment to something more reliable.
