Default practical exam theory

mmm the dreaded theory side
i would guess that 90% of us have forgotten 90% of what we learned at tech,

so the reason behind this thread is a sort of revision of what we already know

so i`ll start of with DOL starters and a wiring diagram if you what info / wiring diagrams please ask via PM /email otherwise this thread will be chocker with chit chat and it`ll slow down others wanting info


SO DOL starters and a wiring diagram
