    While we are at it I guess LsChero got it wrong to in post # 9. All I did was ask a question Andrewok, not quite sure about the the hostile response.

    I did use a tow dolly; the point I wanted to make, though, was that no matter what I wanted to rent with Dad's truck, UHaul said NO. It's utterly astounding when corporations get to a point of just saying no, just to keep the lawsuits from ever having a chance to hatch.

    And for the record, except for picking up a roofing shingle in the dolly's RH tire, I had zero trouble towing the Taurus. I went 45 in direct drive all the way, and the truck performed beautifully.

    Thank you.
    I have a vexing issue I will be back on in SF this Saturday.
    Building has a 480V delta 1200A services fed from a transformer vault in the sidewalk. The transformer in the vault feeds 2 other buildings as well as this one.
    The site is experiencing significant voltage spikes at random times that don't correspond to load changes, they occur a bit more often during low load situations, and the other two buildings do not have the problem.
    Hopefully your insight will yield a resolution.

    John I am no where close to you level electrically but if you are serious you may check and see it there are any large 3PH motors running off of old dry contact starters. Once had a 75 horse hydraulic pump motor that had a bad starter contact. It would single phase sometimes but the other 2 pumps somehow kept it spinning and running with out tripping the heaters. The reason we found the bad starter is because we were having random VFDs that were using the same feed (sub panel) faulting out a bus over-voltage fault. We did not solve the problem in hose but and out side contractor traced it back to the hydraulic pack. ans the bad contact in the starter. The controls contractor talked the boss into up upgrading the system to a PLC and VFD controls it originally use pressure switches and relays to control the pumps.

    He knows what he's doing (God, I hope so). What I think he's doing is being condescending to 66G. A tale as old as time.
    I will give you a million bonus points for your answer, though.

    Yeah he knows what he is doing and I know what he was doing, that's ok he was just trying to put me in my place, not taking the bait, when I said to ask anytime he needs help I meant helping him drink HIS beer.

    I'm almost tempted to print it off and frame it. Almost.

    Husband and wife's 20th wedding anniversary is approaching. Husband asks the wife what she wants. She says "Actually I'm thinking about a divorce." He answers "Hell, I wasn't planning to spend that much!"

    Save some trees and weed out the dumb posts before you print it.
