3 phase power

9 hours 27 min ago
I am hooking up a 20 hp 3 phase compressor and i am confused. Other than building a 3 phase converter about 10 years ago i know nothing about 3 phase. Isn't it just 3 120 legs in different phase?
I have 240 between each of the 3 legs, 2 legs are 120 to ground but the third is 240 to ground. Even with the belts off the motor turns over a few times and kicks the breaker.

[Pics] Mini Boats at Desert Storm (pics and Vids)

9 hours 51 min ago
So Nick drove for over 20 hours from Minnesota to Lake Havasu for Desert storm. We had a BLAST.. the mini boats were a big hit during the power parade in the channel. But since we were driving the mini boats we really did not get any pics of us in the parade. I was wondering if anyone on here had pics or video of the mini boats. We also took the minis to Copper Canyon, pirates, and Topock. so if you have any images or video from those places as well we would love to see it. We are compiling a video and need more footage. Thanks in advance

Trouble cooling 455 with neovane?

13 hours 52 min ago
Just curious if anyone has had trouble cooling their Olds 455 with a neovane pump. I took my boat out for the first time yesterday and got a little hot. After a 10 minute cruise, the temp reached just above 210 so I brought her in and shut her off. Let her cool for a while and tried again. Same thing, so I brought it in and brought the RPM's up to pump more water. The temp came down immediately. So, we went out for a longer cruise. In fact, almost to the back of the lake and back. According to Dallas's GPS, I was at a steady 43 mph with an unknown RPM. But I am guessing around 2500 to 3000. By the end of this cruise, the temp stayed steady at 180. As soon as I would let it idle, back up to 210. I would really like to let it idle for more extended periods of time seeing how I want to be able to pull the kids on tubes and what not. Should I pony up and get a Magnaflow? Or is there a cheaper/easy option to help keep the engine cool.

I also found out I need a new starter and stronger battery. But I figured I will come across several bugs that will need to be worked out. But thats part of the fun.


home made engine plates

14 hours 38 min ago
Just thought I would post some pics and info on my engine plate project I just finished in case anyone else is thinking of doing it. I wanted to make some new 1/2" plates with mounts for adding an alternator and vaccum pump and retire the old 3/8" plates so I went out and got some 6061 1/2" plate aluminum. I used the old plates as templates and made rough cuts with a jigsaw and a lot of wd-40. Then I used a flush cut router bit and again used the old plates as a template. used the router also for a beveled edge and sanded with 320 then 600 wet and polished. I was able to get things positioned to where both belts are the same length so I only have to have one size of spare belts. It would have been alot faster and easier if I had access to a bandsaw. ended up being about $150 in material.

Another what carb should I get question

Sun, 04/26/2015 - 21:40
So I am going to just buy a new carb for my project instead of trying to rebuild an underpowered carb thats been sitting in the environment for 10 years. I know i want a 750 DP and I see a lot of post about the holley 3310 and the 4150. But when I ggoogle those numbers I get a lot of variations. Is there a specific model number for marine applications? The boat has a 455 olds with a torker intake, not sure about the internals. Sorry for the rookie question.:)st
