How to measure rain fall when your rain gauge overflows

Most rain gauges that you will make at home will only measure up to one inch of rain fall. The problem with this is that if you live in a place where you will get more than one inch of rain your measurement if taken incorrectly will be very skewed. If your rain gauge has been constructed correctly you should have a fail safe in place.

When you construct a rain gauge you should have a measuring tube inside of an over flow tube. The meausuring tube will hold about one inch of rain fall, but when more rain falls the inside tube will overflow into the outer tube. To measure the excess rain fall you will follow a few simple steps.

Start by reading the inner tube of the rain gauge and then carefully empty the tube. Make sure that you don't pour out the water that has overflowed into the outer tube.

Once all the water for the measuring tube has been emptied carefully pour the excess rain water into the measuring tube. To get the most accurate reading try your best to not spill any water out, you can pour the water over a bucket to make sure that if you do spill any out you will catch it and be able to measure accurately.

If there is a lot of overflow you might want to measure a little bit of overflow at a time to get an accurate read. As you measure, write down the measurements and when you finish add up the values to get the reading.

The readings are done in inches so you have a reading that is 1.00 and has an overflow that measures up to .50 then the total read out will 1.50 inches.

How do I get a manual for my CATX-1B remote starter?

You might first try a local dealer that sells the brand, many shops have piles of them laying around. You may also check eBay. Another option is an online manual site, searching for the model in the search engine followed by the words "owner's manual" or "installation manual" will show you sites that have them available.

It won't start. It is not the starter nor the battery.

Clicking is the starter solenoid-- either not pulling
the starter in-- because the battery is run down-- or
the solenoid or starter has failed

Maybe the starter bolts came loose & it is jammed

Can you turn the motor over by hand --off the crank damper

Starter fusible link

wow no year, or even honda car model stated, amazing...but..
crossing what.?
big lug to big
or big to little terminal.
a key fact that......????????
if the starter runs then all fuses are good in the engine bay.
the main starter is not fused anyway. sorry.

if starter cranks engine, with big outside lug jumped to small terminal
that means the KEY line is failing.

the car has A/T or M/T again, i must guess.... sad that.
the M'/T the key line is interrupted by the clutch switch.
the A/T is interrupted by the PRNDL switch on the tranny
all cars can have an alarm system or other BS, that cuts
this line too. (BS like add on remote starts, etc)\

when you turn the key to start, the key line goes to 12v
and must arrive at the solenoid, if not bingo.
its obvious what is wrong, a dead key line.
find it.
a voltmeter (any made in 50 years) finds this in 30min work.

Dead battery

You have a random electrical short in the system and it is on the acc. side of your ignition system.Systems such as interior lights, glovebox light, brake lights, memory circuits for onboard computer, radio and some aftermarket components. Without me being able to see your car it is very hard to determine the cause. First determine that the battery is dead. Its possible that the battery cables have a bad connection, not at the battery but at the starter sol. or the battery cable ground connection on the engine. Clean these connections to see if you fixed it. If not then after that you will need to remove the poss. battery cable take a volt ohm meter and put the black lead to the poss. post of the battery and the red lead to the cable, set the meter to 10 amps BEFORE you hook it up. Then wate until all systems have timed out when this happens the needle will drop. If not then you have a direct short. If it does drop it should drop to less then 2 amps (that is normal) if it is above that you have a drain on the battery. Before you start this test make sure the key is out of the ign. then remove the interior light fuse that way you can open the doors without resetting the timers. Watch the meter and remove one fuse at a time, if the needle drops then that is the circuit that is giving you the trouble. Find out what that fuse controls and repair as needed. Hope this helps. Let everyone know if it did OK

I have a 09 Piaggio Fly 50. When I bought it, the battery was run down from lack of use and extreme cold (I used to live in the Rockies). I could never start it from the starter button, but always with a...

Hi, Jkranowitz before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid or starter circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

I bought a 2007 Camry with a remote start. The seller doesn't know how to start the car with the remote. The remote is a 4 button Viper 474V.

First, be sure that the remote is programmed for the vehicle by using it to operate the door locks(pressing the lock and unlock buttons). The parking lights should flash if nothing else works.The usual way to operate the remote starter with this remote is by pressing the * button once but, the option could have changed if the remote has been reprogrammed differently. So, try pressing the * button once. If this doesn't work press it twice within two seconds.If this doesn't work try pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time. If these steps fail to initiate the remote starter try the steps listed for the * button with the aux button. If either of the remote starter inhibits (hood pin, neutral safety) are active you should receive flashing parking lights for a failed attempt to remote start.

You either have a bad remote starter, or the remote starter has caused the body computer to fail. Remove the remote starter completely from the car. See if the car starts normally. If not, the body computer has failed. This is a very expensive item, and have been found to malfunction due to remote starter electrical failures.
