    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    Why?
    By the same assumptions, you would expect used cooking oil to smoke badly, but no:
    If the ATF/Used cooking oil is injected into the combustion chamber (or prechamber) through an injector that...

    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    If you have blowby, then it is very likely that you have gummed your rings and they are wearing the bores of every cylinder.
    The diagnosis should be based on a compression test - to determine if you...

    Re: SVO supply in Sydney - wanted

    Shopping centres are usually a no-go zone for private oil collection due to OHS concerns. My oil suppliers are stand alone or in small complexes. A deli and a restaurant.

    Re: Blending supplies.

    JJ, I contacted each of the Automasters shops in my area (6 of them) and asked for them to pone me when they have some. I got a call 2 weeks ago when they had ~200L in 20L drums. I get a call once or...

    Re: Blending supplies.

    JJ, yes it is so easy to find out - The GP lamp does not come on when glowing and it comes on for a few minutes after starting. This is the same for Mercedes diesels from the '90s at least. The Musso...

    Re: Blending supplies.

    JJ,
    I don't worry about calculating the volume needed, based on the % petrol in the misfuel to give a specific % of petrol in my veggie oil. That deserves to be in the "too hard basket".
    I rely...

    Re: Dewatering WVO with petrol.

    Smithy,
    Does your Sandy Brae water tester measure water in the presence of vegetable oil as accurately as it measures water in the presence of petrol and/or other fluids?

    Your test results show a...

    Re: Ssangyong Musso

    It would be interesting to compare the mounting flanges.
    Anyone got an IP from a Musso Sports handy?
    I can photograph and measure my OM617 IP mounting flange.

    I have read somewhere that a Musso...

    Re: Ssangyong Musso

    SmithW, as Tilly has written, the thermostat is in the side of the engine. I do not recall which side of the radiator this is, but it is unlikely the the temperature gauge sender would be located at...
  14. Re: Blending Diesel with Filtered Vegetable Oil?

    I can see that the engine may run quieter on veggie oil than on diesel because of the different burn characteristics of the fuels. In fact, that is the only reason that I can think of that there...
  15. Re: Blending Diesel with Filtered Vegetable Oil?

    Additionally, this vehicle is a Common Rail Diesel which does not have an injector pump, it has a high pressure pump to provide the high pressures in the "common rail". The injectors are piezo...

    and I reset the idle down again to idle at around 800 RPM (a bit high though) and will...

  19. Re: What is good? Looking for small truck recommendations in 4WD

    Getting your supplier set up and working with you is a good first step. Don't leave it too long getting the vehicle though.
    You could set up a filtering station so that you have clean oil ready to...
  20. Re: What is good? Looking for small truck recommendations in 4WD

    Afraid I don't have any contacts in Gnowangerup area. Why biodiesel? Why not veggie oil (possibly with up to 20% ULP or any combination with diesel)? Biodiesel in most cases is not required. For...

    I am happy to say that I did not lose a boat, (I have never owned one), but I did have a fire at home while charging my big home battery bank. Some items were placed on the power cord which over...

    I also use the 20L chemical drums for storing filtered oil, ready for use.
    My supplier returns the used oil to the 20L steel drums it came in.
