    Re: To convert or not

    Single tank? So I presume you can use dino or vege oil, but not both. Doesn’t sound like value for money at $1500. Or am I missing something?

    Re: To convert or not

    Re: 2006 VW Jetta 2.0 tdi

    No I don't but the Gen4 Passat should have PumpeDuse injectors which should be be more forgiving of less than perfect fuel than common rail.

    Re: Collecting fuel on the move

    Yep that's the pump to get. Go to Pirtek or similar shop and buy some 13mm hose barbs as the ones supplied are too small for common hose like garden hose.

    Re: Collecting fuel on the move

    Have done trips to Darwin, Cape York, The Kimberleys The Pilbara and Lorella Springs on the Gulf collecting oil along the way. All these trips were about 7000 to 85000ks. I have a 12v gear pump which...

    Re: To convert or not

    All done, I used my last 2 spare LPG valves , only had to buy one Tee piece and a couple of hose barbs. One solenoid valve controls return back to oil tank, (main tank) and one for diesel which I've...

    Re: To convert or not

    Tony I did a rough check and found that about 0.5 litres per minute returned from the pump at idle, I suspect some even when the car was ready to start, ignition on and facet pump ticking away. When...

    Re: To convert or not

    Question. Since my 'conversion' hasn't extended to looping the return or changeover solenoids on the return, will I lose much diesel back to the oil tank when switched to diesel? Will this be made...

    Re: Full volume of a 20L cubie?

    Bueff the yellow cubies will leak if you don't have the clear plastic seal which goes under the screw cap. Unfortunately most cooks chuck them away, so it is possible you have never seen one. I hang...

    Sounds odd, are you sure the breather only comes from the front diff? I have the gearbox teed into mine, however have never seen oil come out the top end of it. The only way I can imagine oil being...

    Re: Twin tanking and pumps

    Why not just turn the pumps on or off and dispense with the changeover valves? Of course you'll still need valves on the rerurn side (single action ones). Are these pumps something special as I would...

    Re: Engine oil level increases between changes

    I'm going the opposite to Cade in saying that cold starts advance the timing, so if you advanced it more it may now be too much when cold. A rattle or what is known as 'nailing' when starting can...

    Re: More Ssangyongs in the stable

    Tony I was talking about fitting a turbo from a Musso not the IP. I think the yanks got turbo versions but then their steering was on the other side obviously.

    Re: More Ssangyongs in the stable

    Yeah but if only the 190D had a turbo like the Musso. Could possibly fit a Musso one to it, but would have to delete the steering to fit it in.
