Guess what? 4th motor wrong way lol

The fitter was laughing his head off.
A few years back I had to commission a waste water treatment plant. I would bet the fitter a beer for each pump direction test. They would not have a bet in the end.

If it is a new pump (not rewound) and if site phase rotation is correct, and connected as per manufacturers data sheet it will go the right way.

No way of checking this new pumps rotation when it is five meters in the drink and weighs about 600 hundred kilos.

They’re rewound mate, always a couple of spares for each size and the old ones get sent off to become the new spares when repaired. Every now and again there’s a brand newy 👍

Also, RWB isn’t always RWB... I’ve found some lazy bugger in the past on a couple of them has changed direction by swapping phases in the shady, air conditioned substation instead of out in the field where it’s stinking hot!

The supervisor goes pretty wild when he finds this lol

That was interesting. Decided I needed a ride so I sets sail at 7.30pm thinking it will be nice and quiet but nooooooooooo, I struck two idiots on motorised skateboards in the middle of the road with no lighting or reflective clothing and then some w.anker walking his dog, in the middle of the road. I came around a corner and only picked him up, 10mtrs before I was upon him. Slowed down and rode past on the right hand side of the road, didn't say anything and when I came past him again from another direction, he yells at me..........You're a forkhead! :unsure: I instantly replied.........excuse me and turned around and went back to confront him. He then proceeds to tell me how much of an idiot I am and that I frightened his dog and I should have used my bell. :unsure:
I'm now a bit confused and said to him..........You were walking, your dog, in the middle of the road, in the dark, instead of the footpath but he was stuck on the bell thing, it didn't matter that, I, had the lights on and he wasn't visible in the dark till it was nearly to late, so WTF am I missing here? 🤬

Already new that but wouldn't have made any difference, he was in the middle of the road, not to the side of it and 10mtrs is sweet stuff all in time to cover when it was at that point where I picked him up. I had my light on low beam so it doesn't shine that far. ;)

It especially sucks when there will be some crackhead walking in the middle of the road and there’s no street lights on a dark night damn almost hit them like honestly going to go past one day and they will have been hit by a car. 🙄

Also, quite funny sometimes you ride past someone through the grass and they jump to the moon and back thinking it’s a snake or something it’s hilarious! 😂

I wonder if the bullbar of your truck or it's rear mudflaps would of scared him more.
I guess he found out that you ain't exactly the soft target he was hoping for. Almost worth unclipping a foot to play fur or idiot footy. Keep that in your memory banks if you cross paths again.
