Why does the welder quit arching after 30 minutes?

Motors and generators are the same in this sense. The winding of a field coil is defective. The winding heats up with use and the winding expands causing it to short out and quits doing it's intended purpose. An hour of cooling allows the winding to contract thus clearing the short circuit. A good motor rewinder person can find the defective winding with an oven or heat gun and can rewind it for a fraction of a new welder generator.

Installing tig torch to water cooler

You can directly connect your water cooling argon torch to the tank, but the pump electric wires must be connected in accordance to the switch, when you press the switch you start to weld and the pump is on, release you stop welding and the pump is off, rather an electrician to do the connection for you

?many battries are using in galaxy 3000 g3k

If the Galaxy 3000 is a 10 or 15 KVA UPS, you need 20 batteries of the 12v 20ah if the UPS has standard backup time.
If it is a 20 or 30 KVA, probably it needs 24 batteries.
Talking about the 20 or 30 KVA UPS, if the battery is 34ah, it uses 24 batteries; in any other case it uses 20 batteries.

Miller Trailblazer, welds great for about 30 minutes. Then I loose my arc. It will spark but not maintain the arc. I let it cool off for 15 to 30 minutes it will weld for another 15 to 30 minutes.

Sounds pretty normal. These units are not rated to weld continuously. They might only be rated at 5-10% for cheap welders and longer for better ones. They are never designed to run continuously. You need to get into the higher end ($$$) before you get that ability.
You can try to blow cool air into the unit to help it cool. Sometimes this can extend the work time.Basically you can try that or work to your temp cut off limit as you have been or upgrade to a better unit. That is about all you can do.

MY 1999 suburban has water dripping from the engine. I can't find where.

check your hoses for small holes and cracks. especially close to the hose clamps if not then check your water pump and radiator. sometimes the water will drip from a hose and travel down wires landing in a different spot on the ground. or the easy way out can be to take it to a mechanic and have them pressure test your cooling system. itll take about 30 mins and be about 40$

My miller matic 35 welds and stops after about 2 inches let cool for about 30 to 40 sec and it welds again. fan runs

these need a good power supply , i looked and did not see the duty cycle on this welder if you are doing heavy welding 100% power it will need 30- 40 minutes to cool of to weld again. it all depends on the units duty cycle, stated on the welder spec plate ..can you bypass the auto feed speed mode ? this might be the issue.. good luck ..use all the protection you can when welding these are like the sun and can and will burn exposed skin and eyes .. if'n i was any help throw me a bone and vote thanks jay
