View scottj ‘s Album Thanks for the help Thanks to you both for the information. Unfortunately it was not what I wanted to hear. Let me start at the beginning. When I turn the power switch on, there is a drain on the household power, but the motor will not start and will shut off if left on for too long. If I wrap a cord around the shaft and pull on the cord at the same time that I flip the switch to on, it will start running and then run fine. My neighbor said it was probably the start switch inside the motor not the power switch. I took the motor apart and the neighbor came over and looked at the start switch. The spring loaded part would not move freely. We got it cleaned up and now springs out. While I had it opened, I wrapped electrical tape around some of the wires where the brittle insulation had broken though I could not see any bare wire.

Pool, resident chemist at In The Swim. Many parts of the US have hard water which can leave calcium deposits at the waterline, or calcium crystals or thin sheets of calcium scale on the pool walls and floor. After defining the cause of pool scale and ways to prevent scale problems in pools, we will cover how to remove scale from vinyl, fiberglass and concrete pools. What causes Scale in Pools? Calcium carbonate scale can form along the waterline of the pool as evaporation increases during the summer.

Scale itself is a white translucent color, but is often mixed with dirt and algae to appear darker.

The most common e-mailed question I get is:

The short lead is the negative pole, right? Post a picture and I or someone else could tell you. Make sure you get the full can in the photo and both sides of it so that we can see all the markings. There are ‘s of styles of capacitors. If yours has a short lead how would we know which was the positive or negative lead? You need to check either the polarity marking on the capacitor or consult the device datasheet. The bare-metal type with a surface mount base attached usually have it printed with other information on the top.

But as they have pointed out, that is not always true. A properly-connected capacitor shouldn’t have current flow in a DC circuit, so it should not warm up. So as others have pointed out, your capacitor is most likely connected backwards, and you should disconnect it immediately. Lucky you didn’t use a tantalum, that would probably have just exploded!


Tue Jul 10, In the Example of a fuel cell circuit of FIG. The core is 1. A primary coil of turns of 24 gauge copper wire is provided and coil of turns of 36 gauge wire comprises the secondary winding.

This limit is typically given in the electrical specifications in the microcontroller’s datasheet.

Garden Tractor pull video from — Geo Jim at a Garden Tractor Pull If you click the link above the picture to the left there is a short video of Jim in a tractor pull in with his garden tractor puller called the Geo. It had a 3 cylinder Geo engine in it. Garden tractor pulling is not the same as garden tractor racing. Pulling is not about the speed of the tractor but about the power and traction it has. Over the years I have won and lost with quite an assortment of garden tractors of just about every brand.

I lost most of my pullers in a fire a few years back but I have a few built up again.

The following instructions are for creating a MegaSquirt to Relay Board cable. It is for those who are creating their own harness. With both boxes mounted, measure the distance between them from DB connector to DB connector – this will be the length that you will cut the individual wires. If you are not using a Relay Board, allow enough length in each of your wires to reach the target component. It is often better to be too long and trim afterwards, than to be too short and have to splice additional lengths on.

For a Relay Board cable, you can move both heat shrink pieces to the center of the wire length, and then twisting the center of the wire with a few twists to hold the heat shrink in place, so that it does not fall off the wire or run down while soldering the connection.

For example, a Comet Pro receiver with the SN:

The advertising of stated it was “The Last Word” in communications receivers. Other advertising called it “Tomorrow’s Receiver – Today. As Hammarlund said about designing the Super-Pro, ” The Super-Pro was advertised as an “amateur-professional receiver” and it had several unique features that did set it apart from its contemporaries. These included a virtually sealed precision tuning assembly with custom designed variable condensers and a cam-operated knife-switch type degree rotation bandswitch, variable-coupled air-tuned IF transformers that allowed a continuously adjustable IF bandwidth and a powerhouse, high fidelity audio output.

In the hands of an experienced operator, the Super-Pro could out perform any other receiver. As a result, among hams, opinions are highly diverse when it comes to the Super-Pro’s performance capabilities.

You pull the trigger on a machine gun until the whole world turns into blood, and it is awesome. You can’t argue with that; that’s science. More Dakka is the art of solving problems by unloading as many rounds of ammunition at them as possible; related to When All You Have Is a Hammer The name comes from the Ork onomatopoeia for machine gun firing, and subsequently the Ork term for rapid fire capacity: Modern automatic weapons can achieve the rates of fire required for more dakka all by themselves, but using a whole bunch of slower-firing guns works too.

When working around the outside compressor unit, be careful to not step on the pipes coming out of the unit.

How to generate free unmetered self-sustaining electrical power — perpetually. Did you know that the technology was developed to generate free unmetered electricity perpetually. This new motor was developed and patented by Howard Johnson. Johnson proved that generating free energy was possible. He showed that anyone, with the right parts, could generate their own free electrical energy without using a drop of fossil fuel or metered electrical power.

The Johnson motor uses a magnetic motor to generate its electricity perpetually. Magnets last almost forever and specialized magnet even more so.

Wiring For DCC

From up to , National provided Airways companies with HRO receivers for use at airports and for airway navigation uses. The RCD provided specific airways features like squelch, relay controlled speaker selection and audio bandpass filters and single audio amplifier output sections designed for either Z ohm lines or Z ohm speakers that had internal output transformers. No S-meters, no crystal filters and most importantly, no external power supply. Undoubtedly, the Airways companies found the HRO, with its numerous idle coils and separate power supply, somewhat difficult to install and maintain.

The RCD and its successors were self-contained receivers only requiring a loud speaker or telephones. This station was basically the aeronautical communications to various airplanes providing weather, flight information and other necessary communications to “in flight” aircraft.

Tube Stuff Suppliers Appendix B. Tube amps have always been the amplifier of choice for the working musician. Musical myth has ascribed almost magical tone to them. While the results may not be entirely magic, tubes do have a sound that is different from solid state amplifiers, and one that happens to make amplified music sound better to the human ears and brain. There are lots of technical and psuedo-technical explanations for why this should be true, but there is enough solid evidence that it is a real effect to trust it.

The real reason to use tube amps is simply that they sound better. For that advantage, we put up with the poor supply of parts, high prices, fragility and excess heat that they produce. Are Tube Amps louder than solid state amps of the same power? Some excellent scientific work on tube preamplifiers and their distortion products has turned up the mechanism for this.

When tubes are driven outside their linear region, for the first 12db or so of overdrive the harmonics that they produce trick the human ear into thinking that the sounds are getting louder, when in fact the sound is getting progressively more distorted.

DB-9 Straight-through cable 6. In the assembly instructions are tables indicating some of the standard schemes for identifying resistors and capacitors, and well as how to find the ‘positive’ leads on polarized components. Note that you can also use a multimeter to measure resistors, and some can identify the orientation of diodes. Finally, you can use the bags that the components come in to identify them, the component is specifically, if sometimes a bit cryptically, labeled. The following is a step-by-step assembly guide for the V3.

Despite all this, it provided the best sound at the show.

Electrical meter Turn off power to the outdoor unit via the electrical disconnect or breaker. Remove the electrical panel cover of the air conditioner by taking out the screws that hold it to the unit. Verify that the power is off with your electrical meter by setting your meter to measure voltage and touching the probe ends to the lead side on the contactor. This is where the wires enter the unit.

You should read no voltage. Use a screwdriver to ground the terminals of the capacitor to the metal cabinet of the air conditioner. This will discharge any stored charge within the capacitor. Write down the colors of the wire, where they come from and which terminal on the capacitor they connect to. You can also check the current wiring against the wiring diagram located on the inside of the panel cover.

Remove the mounting screw holding the capacitor in place.

SOLVED: Can a start capacitor be wired up backward

So on to the installation which consists of a few simple steps: Headlight Wiring Harness Connection Note: The H4 style connector 3-wire 1. The connection shown in photo A supplies the control power to the two relays in the new harness. Just plug one of the stock faded yellow headlight connectors female H4 into the bright yellow mating connector male H4 on the new harness. It can only go in one way and there is only one male H4 connector, so it is hard to get this step wrong!

Likewise the high beam terminal should do the same switching between low and high beam mode.

Motors used in HVAC such as the condensing fan motors or blower fan motors sometimes need help to get moving and to stay running at a steady pace, with no heavy up and down spikes. Not all motors will have a start or run capacitor some can start and run by themselves. Capacitors in HVAC can be separate or can be in a single package.

The Dual Round Capacitors are simply the way engineers are trying to save on space and cost. They could have put two capacitors in a unit but combined them in a single package. A dual capacitor will most often have one side to start the compressor Herm and the other side to start the condensing fan motor. The third single leg on a dual capacitor is a shared common leg. A Start or Run Capacitor can be combined into one capacitor called a Dual Capacitor with three leads, but can be split between two separate capacitors.

The Start Capacitor gives a fan motor the torque it needs to start spinning then stops; while the Run capacitor stays on giving the motor extra torque when needed.
