    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    1. Not using inline filters, but oil clarity isn't the issue
    2. Yes there is a lift pump. But it doesn't make any difference.

    I don't understand the bit about the return line, but can't see how...

    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    Thanks for the repluy. If by pusher pump you mean a lift pump it already has one, and it makes no difference. Which probably means that the IP needs a rebuild.

    Or I could give it to GTurbo, get...

    Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    I have some issues with a 1HDT on SVO.

    It runs fine up to about 90kmh and then it loses power and won't rev any further. Switching back to dino in the sub tank makes a bit of an improvement but...

    Re: Reduced oil temperature in reactor ?

    I will answer this one specifiuc question. To ensure enough drying agent you just add it in excess. You can't add too much. And since a 20kg bag of cement only costs $6 I just add the whole bag, so...

    Re: Reduced oil temperature in reactor ?

    Geez, fancy logging onto this forum for the first time in years (to post about SVO proportions) and find a post about my RT method.

  8. Re: Common Rail and Veggie oil - Report on presentation by Alexander Noack of Greasen

    Ok I'm calling bulltish on this:


    I wonder can anyone tell of any examples of oil "turning to jelly" and destroying engines.

    These kits cost the best part of $2K. That's how he justifies the...

    Re: Bio Sludge in fuel tank

    I don't know whether it was "microbial" or "algal" - I don't know enough about microbiology to classify it. All I know is that it was biological in nature. There are thousands, possibly millions, of...

    Cheap Methanol in Perth

    I have come across a cheap source of Methanol. It's off-spec, and was written off as waste by the manufacturer (Manildra)

    I don't know what specs it doesn't meet - it certainly looks and smells...

    Re: Bio Sludge in fuel tank

    I knew the stuff I had was algal because of its response to caustic soda. If you treat black mould in your shower recess with oven cleaner (caustic soda) it lifts off the surface and assumes a...

    Re: Bio Sludge in fuel tank

    Very interesting - I'd suggest that the BD goes off quicker in metal than plastic because it acts as a heterogenous catalyst.

    To add to my further comments, there are two differences between...

    Yes in most cases it is glycerine, but not every case. This stuff was most certainly biological in nature (I had some sitting in the bottom of my Frantz and did some tests on it). Why it formed in my...

    This test is completely unnecessary. You are making fuel, not a pure laboratory product. Using biodiesel, instead of WVO, is all about viscosity. The efficiency of conversion is therefore immaterial...

    Re: Alternative IP pump priming methods

    What he said. Ditch the standard filter and replace it with almost any aftermarket system. I personally use a Frantz 1um system. And both the Walbro (FRB51 I think) and facet pumps work well,...

    It's the HDI. The bloke that I sold it to, who apparently knew a lot about them, said the turbo was gone. Makes sense - it ran fine up until the tuurbo came on boost and that's when the problems...
