    Re: Convert 1981 patrol SD33 to use WVO

    I've been running my SD33 for a couple of years now on WVO. You're right - no fuel return from the IP. I have a seperate WVO Filter, & wouldn't really like to go down the shared filter road. My ute...

    Re: Pictures of my Land cruiser 1HZ conversion

    What are you on about Tony - it was a balmy 10' last night :D.

    Re: Hilux 2.4 or 2.8

    Are the 3 litre & 3 litre turbo IDI or DI engines? Are they like the 'cruiser engines - IDI for NA & DI for the Turbo?? I'm considering a change to Hilux, Navara or similar but like the IDI for WVO.

    Re: HJ47 2H conversion

    Re: How much petrol will a diesel engine tolerate?

    Glow plug trick on the MQ's - hold the ignition key mid way between ON & START. This will hold the glow plug relay in until you decide to turn fully to the START position to engage the starter motor....

    Re: Electric WVO pump

    The Holley pump passed WVO but provided no pressure, the Facet acted like a closed tap hence the trial of the stock lift pump on WVO & the facet on diesel. The facet is coping ok with the Diesel but...
