  1. Its hard to argue with a free, good running...

    Its hard to argue with a free, good running donor..... There are other intakes, just none that have a TBI bolt pattern so I will have to adapt to anything I do.

    I would say finding an older TBI...
  2. I do have the free donor in possession now but...

    I do have the free donor in possession now but the donor is slightly newer and this is complicating things. No one knows a thing about them and its no wonder so many engines get built wrong when...
  3. GM "Industrial" vortec 4.3l gurus? Need to swap engine in forklift. What can we use?

    Have a forklift (96-97 vintage) that will need another engine. Other is not worth rebuilding IMO. I am having a hard time finding information on the "Industrial" engines. What is different? What...

    Solid points have been made. Thanks guys! Things that I probably already knew but don't want to accept....lol Just hard to get around the start circuit of a 1P cap start motor. Lower voltage a...

    [QUOTE=TDegenhart;3396902]I am not sure a hard starting kit, i.e. a capacitor will cut down on the inrush. The addition of a capacitor will cancel some of the inductive reactance which could...

    soft starter ideas on single phase compressor.

    going to have to do something here guys. Have your run of the mill 5hp, 3600rpm compressor that has to be taken to an area with limited power and its going to be an issue on inrush. Already tested...

    Ox, y reference to a Bport was what I did "not" consider large. I guess for clarity, we are talking 60kw and up. Think 3-4 40HP HMCs. However, the 40HP only refers to the spindle and by the time...

    Uh, that price can get right down to FREE if you go steal them from old ranges. I like to have the dedicated 240V "tester", but can run 120V at 1/4 of the power.

    Easiest reliable test loads are cooking range heating elements. They come in various sizes, but you need to apply OHMs law if you will apply a different voltage to it. However, once plugged in,...

    Lets not forget that pole pigs are typically conservatively rated and should handle a pretty good overload for a motor start. However, if sized WAY under what is needed, or if the primary (overhead...

    Cameraman, I am wondering what the power conditioners were for? Maybe these gennies were older, without the electronic controls of today?

    I did look at specs on one that rate the THD at 5%. ...
  12. Testimonials from guys that have run large CNC machines on large generators?

    Curious if anyone here has specific experience running hungry CNC machines on a diesel or gas generator? Not interested in info about running a Bridgeport on a Home Depot special, I am talking a...

    I know I would not fly such a tactic unless the RPC was running a dedicated, lonely motor. A cap can cause 3P voltage imbalance, or a transient spike and damage something.

    From experience, I...

    SND, I think I understand what you are trying to do, which is proactive testing of a PP so you can catch issues beforehand. There is probably a much deeper discussion here in what you are 'really'...

    You say "it dims the lights at the whole place", then say "voltage drop is not the issue"..... When in fact, light dimming is EXACTLY caused by voltage drop.

    Again, it's wrong. That is a single phase panel and USA power is 120/240. Unless we are going back to the 60s, that is not 220V.

    I should mention that we are NOT feeding a DXF to the control and letting it generate paths. All geometry is brought into mastercam and toolpaths generates from that. We have never had a case where...

    The DXF did come into question because we typically would import 3D models. I cannot imagine how the geometry would cause this as the tool path generated fine, without errors.

    On the G17-19,...
