Electrical code requires both hots to be switched on a 230V supply, you can switch one hot and the pump will turn on and off but there will always be an existing electrocution hazard, not a good thing.

I got a used Velodyne SC1250 Amplifier from a friend in the states. Can I switch the power supply from 110 V to 230 V? A pretransformer from 230 to 110 V is to big and not a wishable solution. Are...

If its a transformer based Amplifier you can rewind the primary winding for 230Volt. But it has to be done by a transformer specialist.
All one has to do is unwind the primary on a winding machine and make a note of the number of turnings in the coil. Then wind back twice the number of turns using half the thickness of the wire that was used for 110v.
Eg: if the there were 1000 turns of 20 swg wire in the 110 circuit when you rewind you have to use 40swg wire and wind 2000 turns on the bobin.

The compressor is 3HP 230 v motor. In the pressure switch it is wired white and black from motor and green to ground. Is the white and black wire 115 volt each or it the white wire common and black wire...

If the motor is 230 v then it should have three wires, black, red, and green, however if the motor is convertible from 120 to 230v then the wire from the motor may be black, white, and green. Check the motors label to see if it has different wiring configurations. If the motor is 230 v only then the white wire would be the other side of the 230 v circuit, and the pressure switch should break both sides. Neutral is not used. Note that some people would use a single pole pressure switch, although this will work it is not recommended.

I have a petrol generator, it puts out 110 and 230 the switch that changes over is a on/on switch when it was running my mate switched it over to 110 from 230 and the was a flash now it does not put out...

You probably will need to replace the switch if it flashed over. I would disconnect it and document the exact connections before as there are usually a bunch of wires to the switch. Test the switch with an ohmmeter.

The flashover MAY have discharged the magnetic field of the rotor and you may have to "flash the field" to restore it. Google "flashing field" as there are a lot of methods.

Worst case is if the unit is a brushless generator and the flash over in the switch shorted the rotating diodes on the rotor. That will require servicing of the generator part of the unit to replace the diode modules.

No spark

there are 2 wires that go to the kill switch. bare them both and put a jumper between the 2 to insure insure its not a switch falure. if you get spark, get a new switch or continue with the jumper. be sure to keep the bare wires from touching metal or youll just ground it out again and it wont start

some times they provide switch for 110/230 at the back side of monitor. but if you do not have that you can purchase converter which converts 110 to 230 volts ac.
