SOURCE: I need to install a GFI breaker on a Baptistry.

You could install a standard GFCI in line at each component ( heater, pump & timer) or you could install AFCI breakers similar to what are required in many residential codes (provide the same protection at the panel not at the location...

The AFCI breakers will need to match your panel type (siemens, GE or Square-D) and the amperage/configuration.

I would install them at the lowest level (closest to the components) in the system to reduce possibility of fire in the wiring between the components and the afci breaker.

SOURCE: My double pole 30 amp sqaure D breaker gets a little warm...

You need to check the amp draw on the breaker that is warm. The smell you notice is not normal. Use a temp gun to test the breakers for higher that normal reading. High temp is caused by high current or loose connection.

SOURCE: 100 amp CH breaker does not seat on older CH main

You can Google the catalog number for that breaker. You can also try to call local electrical contractors as one can usually find at least one contractor who has saved every old part that they have removed over the years. Also try ebay.
Unfortunately, even if you do find the correct breaker it will probably be very expensive :-(

SOURCE: I am installing a sub panel in a detached building

You could use 6/3 with ground. You must take an equipment ground conductor along with your current carrying conductors. Still drive a ground rod at the building, and add a seperate ground bar in the sub panel. Connect your equipment grounding conductor from main building along with the equipment grouding conductor to the ground rod. Do not bond the neutral in the sub panel to ground. Be aware you will still have some voltage drop, so a 220V air conditioner might be better.

Recomend installing a capacitor, this will control voltage drop and reduce heat. The new battery should help, but it also may be that the amps final circuts could be wearing out, and no longer able to handle the load of the sub.

Ground rod placement

If this is a Sub pannel that is fed from a main pannel then you don't need a ground rod for it, but you do need to run a ground wire in the cable that feeds it. So if it is fed by a 220 volt breaker in the main pannel it needs both hot wires, a neutral, and a ground wire in the cable.
Also when you get to the pannel do not attach the ground bonding jumper to the neutral bus in the sub pannel. each of the 4 wires will be seperated at the sub pannel.

Lincoln Welder Generator Oil Question

Better late then never! im-308 total lube oil is 4 pints for a briggs and stratton engine
and 3.5 for an onan engine with filter change.

Note: an internal kill switch will shut down the engine if the oil level drops below a minumum

operating level on the onan engine only.

on your welder use a multi-viscosity sae sj grade or better oil. recommended is 10w-30.

if you work in cold environments use 5w-30 oil , it's thinner and will flow easier

during cold starts. Synthetic oil is better. just more expensive. change oil at least

every 100 hours for better performance. good luck!

Hi, yes it can be ugraded but,( theres always a but,) you will need a feed from the mains to a rated connection on the main fuse box, this is not a DIY job, certain rules and regulations prohibit the unqualified. the new line will run to it's own fuse box, then to wherever you want, garage or w/shop with electrical cable 1.5biger than your max (30 amps) best be safe , you cooker socket is thirty amp, but thats max, there are some people that would increase the fuse size, ending up,( If they arel lucky), for a total re-wire those unlucky guy's arn't around to tell the tale. contact your provider and get it safe.
lets know how you get on
