Well since 1500 watts equals 110 volts X 14 amps, you would have to be pulling about 125 amps out of a 12 volt battery to generate that output if the converter was 100% efficient...which it is not. I would say you should count on a draw of about 150 amps which the battery can handle for a very short period of time before it dies. An average starter motor draws about 100 amps on a cold engine if that gives you any idea what you're up against. If you do this, you'll have to have the converter wired directly to the battery with welding cable and you cannot run the engine while you are using it, if you do, the alternator will melt as it is not designed to deliver 150 amps continuously. Also most converters (or inverter as some are advertised) will not deliver their advertised wattage, or it is simply a peak, or momentary output spec. Let's say you do this and the application is your girlfriends hairdryer. If you leave the vehicle turned off and turn this on, she'll have about 5 minutes to dry her hair on the full hot setting. After that, you risk not being able to start your vehicle and get home in time for the game.

Hope this helped.

A 1500 watt inverter draws appx 100 amps from your battery,check with your dealer and see how big in amps your alternator is rated for,if its less than 160 amps you may run short in the summer with the a/c and lights on and discharge the battery or ruin the alternator

My car radio banned the resister r9 and but the person fixing it tellme he does not know wich resister to put in cos it doesnt have colour code


This is quite tricky if you do not have the schematic diagram. But if this is on power then it could be used as a fusible resistor. Typically they are 1 ohm 1 watt. But you could try with 10 ohm 1 watt to see the progress.

I have 4.50 speakers in the front of my toyota carolla and 5.25 speakers in the back can I convert them to a bigger size?


If there is room, you can change sizes. It's easier just to keep the same size and just get better speakers because certain door speakers require specific spacing and room for the magnet of the speaker to hit and retract effectively. But after upgrading to good speakers, you may want to run them thru an amp to get the full potential of the door speakers. If you hook it up thru your head unit it will be 50 watts max to each speaker usually.

1989 Toyota 22re fails California Emissions Test. Rebuilt the engine 20K or so miles ago. Has passed most tests with just a little bit of timing adjustments. At 15 MPH, (1670 RPM) HC measures 153...


HC is hydrocarbons or unburnt fuel.(raw fuel ).NO no such gas measurement.did you mean CO this is carbon monoxide or incomplete combustion.(all the fuel is not being burnt).if you mean NOX this is nitrates of oxide and is related to a heat problem.(motor running hot,bad catalytic converter).its probably getting too much fuel and not burning it all,possibly tune-up problem,carburetor(if it has one),bad fuel injection system(dirty injectors),computer(if it has one)may be getting a wrong signal.these are in reference of high HC and CO.for high NOX cooling system not keeping motor cool enough,cooling fan problem(weather clutch fan or electrically controlled cooling fan),poor cooling system circulation,bad catalytic converter.not a running lean problem as the other gases indicate rich problem.the converter may not be able to convert the emission gases to H2O and CO2 out the tailpipe.

Do not know where all the marks need to be on a 91


Unfortunately my manuals do not go back beyond 1`993 so I ma not a lot of help. I saw your later posat saying you bought a Haynes manual and they did not show the timing marks. I ususllly tell folks to buy the hyanes manual but being that did not help I did some web surfing. All I found was:
http://90gsx.com/eclipse/QA/mm/1378.html from http://90gsx.com/eclipse/QA/mm/ but it did not really answer the question.

Tell me what engine does you truck have in it and may be I can find something on the engine rather than the vehicle.
