Re: Diaphragm fabric

I got to wondering about the materials used on fire engine motor governors that use a diaphragm to control engine throttle. I did a search thinking that perhaps there might be material available for them and found this site: https://www.harkesh.com/rubber-diaphragms-seals-gaskets/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI...

Re: Diaphragm fabric

I have used these Murphy switches gauges on irrigation secondary pumps to shut down motors. If the supply from the river quits, the model 20P-150 shorts a power lead to ground killing the booster motor and saving the booster pump from running dry. The specific part number is 05-70-3121. I have a fun...

Re: Diaphragm fabric

Harold, what is the operating pressure of the switch? I have used low pressure comparator switches as well as switches out of washing machines that control tub water levels.

Re: Parting made easy

Re: Rodents like wiring.

GM still cannot find the part so the car still sits.... Sounds like it was a very good investment (not). Think how nice it will be when it's 20 years old and has no miles to its credit. My '99 Dodge Cummins 3500 (one ton) four wheel drive has only about 26,000 miles to its credit. Bought it new. It...

Re: Electrical wiring in the home shop.

Pat, your story of the trailer incident reminds me of years ago we used 2' by 2' by 4" thick wooden blocks under the outriggers when setting up our fire department ladder truck. It was a common thing to do to distribute the weight over a larger surface area than the 12" y 16" pads that the truck cam...

The existing wiring is on top of the walls and trusses, and the builders dropped it down into the cinderblocks. This allowed them to have flush-mount boxes for the owner to plug into.
So the cinder blocks contain no rebar or concrete or is it in conduit encased in concrete?
