    Re: how to clean dirty oil containers

    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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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

    Yes it would have a mechanical VE type pump made by Zexel under licence from Bosch. Dagwill has suggested the fuel lines were prone to corroding so rather than adding a pump to possibly the dodgy...

    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...

    Re: Aluminium Tanks

    I agree, should be no issues with aluminium. I have an aluminium tank on my vehicle for oil. You might be reassured by the fact that the body of most injection pumps are made from aluminium.
  7. Re: Nissan 3.0ltr Patrol , has sub tank. Computer stops 2 tank system.

    Dagwill, good to hear from you again. Has the cruiser been pensioned off? This is what I would do. Connect a new (larger) pipe from the sub tank to the engine bay and new changeover valve. Disconnect...
  8. Re: Aftermarket fuel filter & sediment / water trap assemblies

    Why would you want to replace it Tony? It is fully serviceable and can be made new by replacing 2 Orings.
    BTW I am familiar with DBs filter, I sold it to him.

    Re: WVO Upflow Design ok?

    Yep the steel drums with clamped on lids are the go. I have coned bottoms on 1st and 3rd drums. Have the outlets on the side about 50mm down and have the inlets on the lid. Best to have the inlets...

    Re: How do I plumb in a heat exchanger?

    Dr Mark you seem stuck on using a Helton yet have already found one the many disadvantages they have compared with a proper flat plate stainless steel unit:
    1. They have welded on spigots so the...

    Re: Waste Glycerine in WA

    What Tilly says. After a year left out in the sun with rain kept out you will get quite a bit of biodiesel off the top.
    In the meantime talk to a commercial composter to see if they can add it to...

    Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    There is no need to include filters and heat exchangers in the flushing operation. Like most of the old hands I use a separate filter for each fuel. I have my solenoid valve which delivers vege oil...
  13. Re: 2002 Landcruiser standard wagon HZJ105R for sale

    Sounds good. Can you get a runaway from just engine blowby? I thought excess oil in sump, fuel in sump and turbo seals going were the only way it can happen. Do they have an EGR? Better without one.
  14. Re: 2002 Landcruiser standard wagon HZJ105R for sale

    So what are you thinking of getting instead Cade? Will you run it on bio? Heaven forbid you aren't thinking of a petrol!

    Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Why I ask is that type of filter has problems with vegetable oil. The filter goes soft and forms tracks which means no filtering. Why I don't know, the same filter elements stay quite firm and solid...

    Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Dr Mark are you intending to install a Franz filter to filter your vege oil? Is it the type that use a toilet roll type of paper filter?

    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    On some VE pumps you can remove the cut off solenoid, some you can't remove it without removing the top cover first. I have removed the top cover while the pump is on the vehicle but I would not...

    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    Only 870kw at the rear wheels! Pathetic. Sounds like you are determined to rev her up a bit regardless, money must be burning a hole in your pocket Dr Mark. Good luck with it.

    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    Dr Mark there are several things which could happen with the IP which can reduce power output. First is blockage from WVO polymerising in the inlet to the pressure head, there is often a small piece...

    I have a line direct from the engine driven vacuum pump. There is a small vacuum receiver which holds vacuum for a few days if there are no leaks. I have a small tap in the line which I leave in the...

    Re: Mercedes diesel vacuum take off.

    Good job Tony. Coincidentally I redid my fuel priming vacuum system this morning. One of the three 12volt vacuum valves had failed so swapped for a spare. At the same time found all the vacuum lines...

    The exhaust through the wall emits a lot of noise, the wall then acts as an amplifier like the back of a guitar. Put exhaust on the roof and most of this noise is gone

    Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Yep, what Tony says. If you have a HEX which uses coolant heat you have ample constant free energy to heat your oil.
    If you use 12volt heaters you have a meagre amount of heat provided by a...
