  1. Re: looking at converting my 2002 Landcruiser with 1HZ engine to WVO

    What Tony says, new bigger fuel line for veg. Separate filter under bonnet. Try to get your vege filter as close as possible to the IP even if you have to relocate the diesel filter to the back of...

    Re: Blending supplies.

    Well I left my number with two of the big dealer service centres near me months ago but haven't had any calls to collect misfuel yet. However adding $3:50 worth of petrol every tank is not too...

    Re: Change in WVO type

    I take what I can get, that is Soy, Canola, and Cottonseed. Soy tends to dry more than the other 2, cottonseed does get thick in cold weather. All mixed together it tends to cancel out these...

    Re: Shitbox Rally October 2019

    As you will be doing a lot of dirt roads I'd be cautious about excessive weight behind the back wheels. I'd go for 2 cubies in the back seat foot wells and 2 maybe 3 in the front of the boot. That...

    Re: Shitbox Rally October 2019

    So are there no roadworthy 2 wd diesel utes for that price. Maybe NSW yearly roadworthy checks have sent them all to the wreckers. I'm sure there would be plenty here in SA. Rough old farm Utes which...

    I had a 200 litre drum at a nearby Indian place. They were pressured into using a supply and takeaway mob eventually. I emptied my drum and took it away, but took the opportunity to give the new guys...

    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    So why would you get an IP rebuilt when just the shut off solenoid 'is rooted'? The diesel workshop must have seen you coming. I'd fix it myself, not hard, I've even changed one on the vehicle...

    Managed to see the finish of Le Tour stage and get up to see the moon. It was pretty amazing. Took a decent photo but now have to get camera to talk to computer. Ahh

    Re: Blending supplies.

    Thanks Tony and Tilly, that's a handy feature. With the Jackaroo I had difficult starting once but engine ran fine immediately it started, eventually found 2 of 4 glow plugs dead.
    BTW the Merc has...

    Tony is it that easy to pick a single blown glow plug? or is it just your brilliant skills.

    Re: Anyone have experience with this pump?

    The gear pump is the better pump. Mine has lasted for at least 8 years. The o ring between the motor and pump will clap out and let oil into the electric motor. Take new pump apart and drill a 5mm...
  16. Re: For Sale - 2002 100 series Landcruiser HZJ105R Standard wagon

    Are you running WVO on the new cruiser?
  17. Re: For Sale - 2002 100 series Landcruiser HZJ105R Standard wagon

    Has the new one got a turbo Cade? If it has you'll soon love it more than the old girl.

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

    With injector out and reconnected to the ip wrong timing won't affect spray pattern.
    Check pressure regulating valve o rings. If ok Ip may be gummed up with polymerised oil.

    Tony, Tilly, Did the Musso change to common rail at any time or is the 2006 still mechanical injection?

    I use glycerine and very hot water direct from the solar HWS, tablespoon of glycerine, about a litre of hot water, put lid back on and shake like mad. Rinse. Best to clean containers as soon as they...

    Re: Members willing to share oil with travelling members

    Look forward to a very steep and possibly expensive learning curve. You have no vehicle yet, need to convert it and want to process oil on the road. With no experience with vege oil in the past you...
  23. Re: Glycerol / glycerine / biodiesel byproduct as rust inhibitor?

    Yes glycerine is too water soluble. Try soy oil. Soy oil is tending towards a drying oil so if you know one of your suppliers uses it (often just called vegetable oil or blended vegetable oil, with...

    Re: terrano dying after a few k's

    Don't scrap it yet, I don't think it is the IP. Sounds like a restriction in the delivery from the tank causing it to suck in air somewhere when using higher amounts of fuel. Time for bypassing tank...
