    Re: washing with heat

    I just popped out to the shed in between tasks and weighed the brew left in the saucepan. Now a lot of things went wrong with this little attempt so its rather meaningless, but the bio mixture with...

    Re: washing with heat

    Sounds like you have a fair handle on this.

    this one will test you :)

    from what you are saying I wont be able to get all of the methanol out of solution by heating. That would imply that there...

    Re: washing with heat

    Thanks Tilly. I think I will boil (65 degree or so) some fresh bio on the stove tonight and see what happens. It will be interesting to see how much the volume decreases. I have boiled the meth out...

    Re: washing with heat

    Ahh - Tilly - The thread isnt about water washing at all. Its about whether or not you can acheive the same outcome of water washing by removing methanol with heat. Note the thread title. I think...

    Re: washing with heat

    Thanks Tilly,

    Ok, so the unreacted oil would stay in suspension?

    Given that plenty of folks run a 1HD-FTE on svo, I would think I would be pretty right with a little unreacted oil in the...

    Re: Minus 7 deg C Biodiesel Reaction

    would love a photo mate, thats very cool. it goes to show how robust the reaction really is.

    I have been watching this discussion with much interest as I have always heated the brew as I believed...
  11. Re: The energy it takes to make biodiesel

    Initially I was sceptical about going large, but when I did the sums it made sense. I am ready for an improvement in battery storage. the market i s crying out for it. I look forward to it halving in...
  12. Re: The energy it takes to make biodiesel

    I know there are quite a few electrical savvy people on this forum, so this is not aimed at those, but the rest of us knock about fixer-uppers. In QLD, im not sure about the other states, you can put...
  13. Re: The energy it takes to make biodiesel

    Hey Tilly,

    Now that you have said it seems obvious. Cant believe I didn't think of such a simple thing before. 'face palm'.

    I am upgrading to a more expensive car, and would like to...
  14. Re: 2002 Landcruiser standard wagon HZJ105R for sale

    Hey mate, sorry for slow reply. I reckon that the blow by would have to be terrible to cause a runaway! I am just quite frightened of a runaway in an auto with no way to stop it quickly. If it does...

    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    The fact it's running on tells me it's your fuel cutoff solenoid O-rings that have failed. Everyone seems to have glossed over that one? Worth a look. Like tony says get the fuel right first. Fix the...

    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    I dont have any experience on 1HDT, but a fair bit on its older brother, the 1HZ with power issues. My first thought on your problem was fuel starvation, either through blockage in the fuel cut...
  19. Re: Generator Exhaust Through a Steel Wall

    Valid point about the heat from the engine block. end result is big holes in the walls. sound is going to be difficult to cut down, especially at night when you just want to run a few things (telly,...
  20. Re: Generator Exhaust Through a Steel Wall

    I still think there is value in pulling the radiator off the gen set and investing in some hoses and an electric fan and put the radiator outside. I would definitely do that. you are actively carting...
  21. Re: Generator Exhaust Through a Steel Wall

    Put your radiator outside with an electric fan outside, otherwise you will have no chance of keeping the noise down. any hole big enough allow cooling air in / out will certainly cart the noise with...

    Hey Jens,

    Lag the pipe with insulation and wrap with a solid layer of foil. Then slip a 'deck-tight' over it and fix to the shipping container with screws. vibrations be gone. bugs be gone. rain...

    Great 4x4 accessory store

    Hey All,

    just occasionally you come across a gem of a store that genuinely sells things cheap.

    A lot of people already know about it, but if you don't I highly recommend the 4wd supa centre....

    Hey Matt,

    Sorry, I didn't return your call, it has been pretty busy here the last week or so, I will explain on the phone when I get hold of you.
