  4. Re: Ssangyong Musso 2.9 diesel 1998 with SVO conversion

    "no additive in Summer."

  5. Re: After 15 years decided to start washing my biodiesel

    Well I did it! Installed 3ct IP instead of 3cte. Took a whole day (i am pretty slow and had to humour myself all the way)

    Very dubious, as I had 5 electric plugs left over not being used now, plus...
  6. Re: Ssangyong Musso 2.9 diesel 1998 with SVO conversion

    Hi Mikey is this still for sale?
    How many K's has it done?
    Think it would be easy to get a roadworthy?
    Thanks

  7. Re: After 15 years decided to start washing my biodiesel

    Thanks again mate
    I will have another look at everything on Monday
    I think the 3ct has one hose and the 3cte has none, so I guess just block it.
    I am pretty sure the injector lines are all in...

    Hi folks, I have been making biodiesel since 2003 (I think!), done about 500,000 km's on a series of Nissan Urvans (great vans but run out of spares/wrecks), and finally on Toyota Estima (110,000...

    It is a 93 Estima 2,2lt turbo, and has run perfectly except I put a cheap inline filter before the main filter soon after getting it. I got the idea from reading stuff on this forum. But this filter...

    Hi Cade, I'm a little confused.

    Sounds like the funnel on top of pick up hose and clear from the grub screw hole on pump serve the same purpose.
