Shane, I agree on that electrical theory. If the low speed is on, and the high speed kicks on, the motor does not have to start from zero rpm, which is where the spike in amperage comes from. Also Shane, when you install this, don't use a fuse, use a circuit breaker, this way your system is protected, but dorsnt leave you stranded on side the road. I have a few if you need one, let me know which amperage you need if you can't find any...

That was what I was thinking about doing. I have a breaker somewhere, but I think it is a 25 or 20 amp. I'm thinking I need at least a 30, maybe even a 40. I will check the one I have when I get home. It came with my old Flex-a-Lite Black Magic fan.

Sweetness, it is a 40 amp breaker! I think this will work great.

Yep, Shane, something else to keep in mind, you can run a buss bar across the terminals of those circuit breakers to combine the rated amperage (two 20 amps would give you 40 amp)...

Through a little horse trading, I acquired this. I will have a bunch of P/S stuff for sale real soon.

It is 4 full turns lock to lock, and it is very easy to turn.

What would the advantage be?

Advantage is if you don't have high amperage circuit breakers available to you, you can 'build' your own rating. Nice score on the steering parts

Will the 40 amp breaker in post #184 (the breaker I already had in my electrical parts bins) be sufficient? Or are you suggesting I put a bus bar on it as well?

That electrical theory holds true in the hydraulics field also. Our pumps, 300 psi+, were always started in the unloaded state, bypassing oil till motor came up to speed.
