Here is the new setup with new engine mounts, motor bracket, alternator bracket, pulleys and belts.

At this stage I have the single phase motor wired to the VFD using no capacitors and the internal capacitors doing their work.

I don't understand the manual for the VFD it is a XSY-AT2, I also have an XSY-AT1.

Apparently other VFDs have much more concise manuals rather than a 4 x A4 booklet.

I will be adding the capacitors back and switching to the 10 amp voltage motor controller. I remember it had much more torque.

I may get a bigger fan for cooling as it makes a lot of difference when testing.

Ideally I would find the right motor that doesn't get too hot.

Bare in mind the motor is literally a starter motor.

The secret is that the Tesla pump is in fact the simplest four stroke engine ever to exist.

Suck at the centre of the rotor

Compression along the spiral path.

Power at the periphery when the air phase changes into cloud amplifying the viscosity of the fluid to 85 times that of air.

Exhaust at the end of the volute

Suck, squeeze, bang, blow!

The secret is getting the rotor periphery speed to Mach 0.7

Tesla hid this secret very, very well.... he patented the machine as one in 20 countries. He thought he had it made! It was only the US patents that got split into turbine and pump.

The truth can be understood more clearly by reading the British Patent 24,001

Tesla's investor "Astor" was on board the Titanic!

The secret almost got buried that's for sure!

Now it is up to us to keep it alive!

"In the pump, the radial or static pressure, due to centrifugal force, is added to the tangential or dynamic, thus increasing the effective head and assisting in the expulsion of the fluid. In the motor, on the contrary, the first named pressure, being opposed to that of supply, reduces the effective head and the velocity of radial flow towards the center."

"A self-regulating machine is thus obtained bearing a striking resemblance to a direct current electric motor in this respect that, with great differences of impressed pressure in a wide open channel the flow of the fluid through the same is prevented by virtue of rotation. Since the centrifugal head increases as the square of the revolutions, or even more rapidly, and with modern high grade steel great peripheral velocities are practicable, it is possible to attain that condition in a single stage machine, more readily if the runner be of large diameter. Obviously this problem is facilitated by compounding, as will be understood by those skilled in the art."

With Tesla's engine the exhaust is cold as it doesn't work using friction ir uses viscosity.

This was Tesla's first "MOTOR" that got cold, not hot!

Add the turbine with port you get backwards and forwards rotation of axle that can be run at all different speeds....

Add the turbine with diverging nozzle you have mechanical alchemy, air to water!

Sounds nuts I know!! hahaha

If anyone can give me any sound advice on the VFD or motor that would be appreciated.

Likewise if anyone can donate to speed up the R&D again that would be very much appreciated.

Here is the latest video......

Hopefully the next modifications will allow the magic Mach 0.7 at the periphery.

I estimate this to be 5740RPM
