If you had 2 pumps to the nose and eight batteries to each pump, how many solenoids would you use?

3 per pump is the general rule
Right now we got 6 per pump and they keep burning up. I was thinking of putting 4 of Accumax's per pump.

holy shit!!!! 12 solenoids on 1 24v wire....too much.....3-per pump like biglink said...if still have problems try paralelling your 24v wire to the other bank.... ;)

are they grounded well?
They're getting good ground. I'm probably just gonna wait until the ones I just put on start actin up and then put 4 accumax's per pump. I just called Showtime and the tech told me that would be best.

3 per pump four maybe run a thicker gauge wire to the 24 on the noids...six noids isnt enough current to get them to snap..keep your batterys charged and make sure your 24 volt battery is always hot... :cool:

Lac, your topic title & question have nothing to do w/ each other.........

Running that many volts to each frt. pump, I'd do 3 Accurates/ Accumaxs per pump, 4/0 cable, & definately make sure they have a good gound source.

Are you running this in your Big Bodi?

Have you tried the Pro Hopper HD Solenoids they handle 6 batteries so you would need 4 2 for each front pump i have heard people only running 1 for 8 batteries but who knows :dunno:

The most I ever had in my Fleetwood was 1 pump to the nose w/ 8 batteries.
I was using 5 ford solenoids (the upgraded ford solenoids) and never had a problem.
The guy that installed the setup in the Impala did everything else right. The car has a completely wrapped frame, fiberglassed body, all the pumps have the 1" ports and the 1000cc Trojans. I'm just wondering why he would use some cheap ass solenoid blocks on such a tough setup.
Yesterday I replaced all the solenoids with some better ones and if they don't last we'll order some Accumax.
