I have a question about different types of ground disconnects,could a ground switch be used instead of that plug you twist to disconnect is 1 better than the other,i saw 1 in an old Reds catalog I have

Get on of the correct size and it will be just fine.
i had one melt on me once because it was only rated at about 100amps, thats how i learnt, although i have welders disconnect in it now because its what i had layin about at build time LOL...
Depends on your pumps and the pump heads, the only way to get an idea is to put a meter across one pump and run it and see the current draw then add about 20amps then multiply that by the number of pumps (worst case scenario all pumps stuck on !), its really hit and miss as the motors draw a range of amps depending on heat and length of time its running for.Originally posted by d.j.Lowlife@Sep 17 2007, 08:02 AM~8807662

i would definately purchase the quick disconnect. i personally have 2 of them in my car, 1 under my seat and 1 that comes out the back of the car for hopping. i just change from either one depending on what im doin so if theres a problem i got the correct ground cable hooked up

correction to the above statement. you cant put an am-meter across something to find out how much its drawing. you need to put it inline.
