Thanks, I've been planning on ordering some spare switches. I found these Carling environmentally sealed switches for $11 each I had been planning on ordering. I been kinda waiting to see if one of the Randys has a recommendation. Them guys is smart.

Just saw this Tim, those look good to me. Most anything that is Mil spec should be decent quality, and don't give me that much credit. I'm just a dumb country boy here.

This had been a few miles away at a friends shop since I bought it. We partner on some projects like this and the compressor. I followed him as he drove to my shop yesterday. It stopped moving about 1 mile from destination. It had lost power to the transmission solenoids. We dragged it the last mile with my dodge. After sitting a few hours, it works again. I think I'll check current draw of the solenoids and of stuff on that circuit. There is a 25a fuse that's melted but not burned out. I'm not sure which circuit it powers. I'm studying the wiring diagram and gonna heck chit as soon as some ambition shows up.

If you replace that fuse with a circuit breaker remember that a breaker will only carry 80% of rating under continuous load.

Thanks Randy. I didn't know that. I gets smarter by hangin around with you smart assed crackers.
The newer models have multiple breakers. This only has one. Maybe they had problems. I checked the breaker at the time of the "non-movement" and it was good.

But if you replace a 15A fuse with a 30A auto resetting breaker.... the shop will quit just replacing fuses and start with a new harness and circuit board when you let the magic smoke out... or so I've been told.

Don't send junky equipment to my projects.

I had Chinese ATO fuses from carquest that would melt but not blow. Almost burnt a 380 Komatsu loader

I dated a girl like that.

So far... I delivered the compressor to the buyer with it today. He drove down from North Dakota, I met him part way. It was a couple hours of driving and the heater worked intermittently. Something else to work on. My feet are still cold.
Cobblers kids never have shoes. My wife has to hold a gun to my head to get me to mechanic on her car. The novelty of that shit wore off long ago.


Run it an watch it. :D

A Belarus is simple as an anvil and just about as fancy. Same as anything that comes out of Russia. The ones they made in the 70's and 80's were absolutely bulletproof and I don't expect those are much different. They were quite popular here. Only tractors I ever seen with downpressure on the 3 PT hitch

Can't remember for sure, but I thinks it's a certain model of International that has down pressure on the 3 point. The fence contractors want them to mount post hole augers on them.
And yes the Belarus is a club, I'd sure like to have that one like redfin posted
