A 90KW Genset produces at least 130dB's out in the open. It can produce more depending on the location. Some locations may produce an echo. I recommend you look into a sound antenuated enclosure, which will reduce the sound by more than 60%.

1997 lincoln continental will not show the miles or any data by going through the systems check most data comes incomplete what would cause this to happen?

This is one you should take to a qualified repair shop ! The electronics involved , a factory scan tool needs to be hooked up to the vehicle !
Instrument Cluster-Electronic Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer's concern by operating the instrument cluster (10849) to duplicate the condition and by observing the indicators and gauges to determine if they are operating properly with the ignition switch:
    • in RUN with the engine OFF
    • in START before the ignition switch is released
    • in RUN with the engine running
  1. Inspect to determine if any of the following mechanical or electrical concerns apply:

    VISUAL INSPECTION CHART Mechanical Electrical
    • Damaged fuel tank.
    • Engine coolant level.
    • Engine oil level.
    • Washer fluid level.
    • Accessory drive belt.
    • Fuse Junction Panel Fuse:
      26 (10A), 28 (10A), 5 (10A).
    • Circuit wiring.
    • Switches or sensors.
    • Stuck fluid level sensor.
  1. If the inspection reveals an obvious concern that is readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with inspection and verification.
  1. If the concern remains after inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the virtual image instrument cluster , GO to Pinpoint Test C . If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the lighting control module, GO to Pinpoint Test D .
    If the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test is passed for the virtual image instrument cluster and lighting control module(s), retrieve continuous DTCs and execute Self Test Diagnostics for the virtual image instrument cluster and lighting control module(s) to retrieve current DTCs.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved for the virtual image instrument cluster, go to the Virtual Image Cluster (VIC) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics. If DTCs are retrieved for the lighting control module, go to the Lighting Control Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the virtual image instrument cluster cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test C . If the Refer Lighting Control Module cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test D .
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
It's more then likely you need a new instrument cluster ,but you need to have it checked for any codes stored ! A obd2 code reader won't do it ! factory scan tool !

Static Noise

Is it a hissing noise or a distorted crackling noise? If it's a hissing noise then it's due to a bug in Windows that adds 30 dB of gain. It's easy to work around, though: Go into Recording devices, Properties button, Levels tab, right click on the level number so that it shows in decibels, and then adjust the level to 0 dB. It's supposed to be at 0 dB but Windows 7 defaults it to 30 dB for no reason. This isn't a problem on Windows XP or OS X.

Guys I am in the position to buy a Homelite Generator 1100watt 4 stroke its a shelf demo, but the noise decible seems to be a bit load at 93, my 2 stroke is only 91 my main concern is will this be nioisy...


The difference between 91 & 93 dB is negligible. If the genset is a good deal, take it, and then look to improve the dB dampening. Most all gensets can have additional silencing added to them. Even bolt-on systems are often threaded beneath the gasket surface allowing for improvements. Either way, you are probably OK, and will not notice a significant difference in dBs. Also, it may be possible to mount the generator in such a manner as to have the exhaust facing away from your caravan, reducing the noise even further. Isolating the generator frame from the drawbar will also significantly reduce the transmitted noise. You may need to give this additional thought; motor mounts for auto engines strike me as a possibility.
Best regards, --W/D--

Hi I have a CAD VX2 that has intermitant noises showing up. they are quiet, but noticable. I have tested it without the mic attached to the power supply and i get NO noises.... the noises only show up when...

Condenser mics will not generate ANY audio, noise or otherwise without a power supply... so that test may be moot.

You have not described the noise so I will try to cover possibilities:

1. ALL electronics generate a random thermal noise which is a limitation of physics. This noise is a random "hiss" for lack of a better description. The level should be many Db less than normal program.

2. Wind noise due to air flow or singers popping... you can sometimes shield this or use pop filters for singers.

3. Crackly noises are often caused by bad cables or connectors... I recently found 6 of my mic cables were MISWIRED so they basically were unshielded/unbalanced. Check that your cables have the shield on pin #1 and the other pins connected respectively at both ends.

PLEASE google the connections for XLR cables and pin arrangement as they are weird layout.

Some cable is of poor quality and generates more noise due to poor shielding and inadequate twisting of the signal pair.

I have a Coleman Powermate 5500 Generator. It is

This engine was not built with quiet in mind, it was built to be cheap. upgrading the exhaust is your best bet and likely the cheapest. Talk to a small engine shop about the possibility of using a muffler from an ATV.

Super Trap makes a fantastic muffler, if it will fit your application (most do). A link has been provided at the end. When you are looking at the various options, you will notice that a rating in db units. Reducing noise by 3db is half the original noise level.

if you can, go with the SuperTrapp. If still noisy (probably won't be), then add on the resonator as well. Downside to using aftermarket is that you will have an exhaust stack / system that sticks out the side of the generator. Upside is that you will be able to think quietly about how much the exhaust sticks out.

And no, I don't have any connection with Jack's, they are just the first hit that came up. Now that you know that something is available, you can do more research on it.

I have a Technics SA-G90 AV Receiver. I have all the original speakers and they still sound great. I was wondering if there was any way to buy a subwoofer and hook it up to this receiver. I know this...

Sight unseen, any powered subwoofer can be hooked to any older gear. Just run a pair from an unused Tape Output to the Sub (you might have to get a Y-cable to make it a mono input). You might not be able to match levels, though, so you sub amp should have some kind of volume control.

I need to know if you can replace a clarke lead with a tweco or some other brand and make it work. If not then if anyone knows where I can get replacment parts for a 130EN that would help. Since Clarke...

There are many different welding leads available. Usually leads in machines like the Clarke are generic Italian made. Check with they have a buch of different leads. The part you need to be concerned with is insode the welder, where it connects to the machine. If you have other questions email me at

Ihave a g900 clarke generator that runs perfect,smells of petrol

Hi i have the same unit, i believe that this is just after fumes that actually smell very much like petrol. As this happens to mine as well and the cap is a very tight seal. Its very much like the smell of an old petrol lawn mower.

Do you know which way round the 240v plugs go.... for instance, which pin is positive (live) and which pin is ment to be negitive (neutral).

As you can put the plug in either way it just seems wrong??
