    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...
  2. Re: Has the Infopop Biodiesel Forum ceased to operate?

    Will this forum go the same way? Lately there has been about as much traffic here as the Canning stock route in January.

    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...

    Re: Axle breathers

    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: Shitbox Rally October 2019

    Yes it is painful having to pick up the servo nozzle, at least it won't use much if you take it easy.

    Re: Can you make bio with Frytol oil?

    Make sure you titrated it and hence get your catylist proportion accurate. If you get some unconverted oil when converting liquid vege oil to bio it causes no harm but get some unconverted fat in...

    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...

    There is a large composting company South of Adealide who make their own Biodiesel from fat from grease traps. They use it in their fleet of Scania trucks which they bought for their bio using spec.

    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.

    Good to hear you've gone out and got yourself a project Tony, or two. Have been wondering how the Courier/Mazda engine with VE pump was going on straight oil. What fuel systems do the Musso and...

    3DB from the symptoms I'm not sure if it's too retarded or too advanced. Lower power says retarded more boost the reverse. I guess if the extra boost doesn't convert to more power then it is...

    Fattima I've always liked the design of the 300tdi and it should be a good engine to convert. Purge times should be short as well. You plan sounds good. Try to minimise the length of unheated oil...
