Transfer Disconnect

Warren - if you have a utility-rated transfer switch installed between your meter and service panel I would expect it to have a disconnect or circuit breaker on it.


It does, but is a pain to use. I have to remove the padlock and take the weather cover off.

According to my calculations, one miss every ten strokes due to water being ingested into the engine (a very optimistic calculation), will produce far more mass of unburned hydrocarbons in the exhaust over the course of a year of exercise cycles than the oil fumes and blowby that gets by the filter on the funnel at the end of my PCV tube.

I think I'm disappointed in the EPA. They have already managed to legislate just about every spark ignited internal combustion engine into running way too lean for good performance and long life, and are on their way to ruining diesels as well. I'm not saying we should go back to leaded gasoline, open crankcases and carburators, but engines were "clean enough" long ago -the last 10 years has been nothing but increasingly ridiculous standards.

Ah, ok I can see a separate switch would be easier.
