Re: Entropy

The pump pulled immediately the first time, but then reverted back to reluctant priming the next times. This doesn't make much sense, one obvious difference is first time the outlet discharge pipe was empty so no back pressure. I am quickly losing interest as replacement pump arrives tomorrow. So wi...

Re: Entropy

Well, you'll have a spare 1/2 HP pump. May be more reliable than brand new, new stuff. I like old stuff I repair, rather than today's junk. Can we have a picture of the hairline crack ? Sorry no hairline crack was found to photograph under closer inspection. I am still speculating that the problem ...

Re: Entropy

No permatex to be found but I did have an old tube of RTV that wasn't solid. I loaded up a bead of RTV on both o-ring races and then some more in the gap after I reassembled it. For all you kids following along from home this is not an acceptable permanent repair.... This is just some mental masturb...

Re: Entropy

OK, the bottom casing is all phillips head screws so I was able to get to the impeller. There is no visible crack, leak, or clog. 'There was an o-ring seal between the bottom housing and the pump chamber. The o-ring appears to be in good shape and there was some sediment in the area but no obvious p...

Re: Vintage Digital Clock Circuits

Back in the 80s a multiplexed a 100 segment vacuum fluorescent display for a kick ass peak/VU meter... Its a shame there was only one of those made and I don't even remember where it went.

Re: Entropy

:idea: Could the hairline crack be from the lightning strike ? That is my speculation.... the pump was probably running at the time of the lightning strike less than 100' away, and the aftermarket controller attached to the pump was fried. Too much of a coincidence to ignore. Saturday I will get so...

Re: Entropy

I just noticed a hairline crack in it, so leak sounds like a possibility. While it was failing to prime there were visible bubbles coming from it...

New 1/4 HP pump arrives in a few days.

Re: Entropy

I ordered some "Y" screw drivers, and a new 1/4 hp pump. The old 1/2 hp was more flow than I needed. The new 1/4 HP pump is an old school design so perhaps more reliable and doesn't have a float switch dongle for me to disable to use with the external controller. The failure to not self prime in my ...

Re: Masks Are Neither Effective Nor Safe: A Summary Of The Science

It's posted right above your post. Been there since March 19th. thanx... I stand corrected.... I got my second jab today so they are killing me slowly. I heard some speculation that the handful of reported clots were related to accidentally injecting vaccine into a blood vessel during the intra mus...
