Hi Warbles. It takes 7 hp to run a 75 amp alternator with 12 volts to the brushes...although your alternator would probably never get 12 volts to the brushes, I think 1 1/2 hp chewed by your alternator is an insufficient estimate of what it would probably use.... PS. E10 has 10% ethanol, not 95.....95 & 98 octane don't have ethanol.
Hi Makerj. Your moving forward in leaps and bounds....good to see, however, you will never get clean castings with the lost foam method, it's just the nature of the technique...can't wait to see your mold method, I reckon you'll nail it. PS. Large solid,thick castings are the most difficult to do without porosity by far....because of shrinkage of the molten metal...spruing theory is important there.
powdered metal sintered gears are compressed into a shape then fired to sintering tempeature. During sintering the dimensions of the gears stays the same so this makes for a very quick and accurate system for manufacture...BUT... The metals produced from this method are usually weak as piss and don't stand up to much abuse at all...funny thing is they are able to make these metals hard, but they dont...hmmm.
Way up the road from Warbles' shack lies asleep a little country town Talk of swamp man Warbles lock you in when the sun go down Rumors of what he'd done...rumors of what he'd do Kept loggers of the track to Warbles' shack in the hills of the kangaroo....
