Goob, do us all a favor and when that breaker has tripped 100 times, replace it. I work for a fuse company, and spent 3 years blowing breakers & fuses up in our test lab. breakers ≠ switches. I'd hate for something terrible to happen to your main panel.

Also, an ammeter or clamp meter would at least tell you how close to the 20A you're getting!

It wont be to hard to run a wire from meter base to garage. I got a nice crawlspace and it attaches to the garage so just drill some holes and run wire pretty simple just a long distance.
Nice!!

Yea these pro comps dont hook up as good on pavement as my bfg's do so I layed a good patch of rubber today and got completely sideways it scared the **** outa me and the guy next to me lol. Highway cruising is so much nicer too it got my rpms down just where I wanted them and the power loss isnt even noticeable.

At my last house I put a 50 amp breaker in the box in the house and ran that to a small breaker box in the garage. I can't remember if I used 8 or 10 guage wire, but it was pretty easy and solved the same problem you have.

I'm surprised with the extra siping and grooving they dont hook up well!! Granted the bfgs have a lot of rubber contact

Good thing its your last house lol I wouldnt run anything smaller than #6 wire on a 50 amp breaker. I'm no expert but my dad is an electrician and he would smack me upside the head for doing that. I do know #8 is only rated at 40 amps. I was thinking about this today if you have any overhead power lines near your garage goob you might be able to hang a meter base there and have a new service run from overhead transformer. granted you will probably need a permit and all that junk but it beats trenching a wire from the house to the garage. but then again here in MT a permit is $$$$

I used universal hoses from the auto parts store. Just measure your inlets and outlet sizes on both the motor and radiator and tell them what you need they should be able to hook you up. I couldn't find any OEM hoses that worked.

Finally made room in my panel for my welder breaker. They had the garage opener on its own circuit so I tied it into the garage lights and there was a freezer circuit so since I dont have a freezer in the garage I tied that into the garage outlets. Problem solved!

Now I fan get back to fabbin.
