can i pull in a 3/4 conduit ...2 #6 1#8 and 3 #10?:huh:

3/4" meets code, I'd go to 1"
How many 45/90's to pull thru ?

there are (2) 90s ,3/4 is already there to use, if it is code i would like to use it? thanks

Use some wire lube to make the pull easier
(2) 90's isn't too bad

I'd agree with Dave. Especially if it's PVC. Wires drag like crazy in PVC.

Just becarefull if you use the exsting conduit some case I have ran into some of the conduits are allready comprised on sizewise somecase it will get oval shape or get pretty good kink it may restrict the way you pull the conductors in the conduit.

I useally have a go / no go maderal so I just slide it thru real quick for two purpose one is clean out the conduit if any gunks there second thing it will gauge the exsting conduit if kinked or oval shaped it will give me a warning to watch out on that.

That is esepeically true with larger conduits { it happend to me once a while }

And make sure you have plenty wirelube I know it will get messy but that the only way you can make it easier to pull it. otherwise you may have someone help you push the conductors on one side while the other side just pull it that will reduce the amout of pulling tension.
