    Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Change of plan - I've decided I'm going to install a second HE, before the CAV filter. What's the story with the plumbing? The coolant ports on the Helton unit are smaller than the other heater hoses in the car. Do I have to tee it off the larger hoses somehow - and how would I ensure that the coolant circulated?

    Brass reducing tees are available in a number of sizes. Yes, tee off from the heater circuit. Check the fuel temperature from a cold start, it should rise in accordance with the coolant temperature. No coolant flow results in no or slow fuel temperature rise.
