    Re: To convert or not

    Johnno, have found it much easier to have both a return line and recycle line, that way can flush the system and yet when running recycle the oil. Also have a switch to turn of the inline pump under...

    Re: Need a little tank for my buzzbox

    Tony, been using under bonnet starter/flush tanks for as long as have used VO on cars, never had a problem and would never site them near exhaust or turbo. With the 20lt metal drums, you take the tap...

    Re: Need a little tank for my buzzbox

    Most metal 20lt veggie oil drums have taps in them or the facility to put one in, you'll find normal poly pipe fittings fit the thread. You can also get those blue 25lt cleaning fluid plastic drums...

    Re: series 60 brakes.

    Thanks the front brakes are fine, so will have to go through the system to find the problem. Think the problem may be the master cylinder, which will check today.

    Re: Coolant sensor location 1HDT

    Jens, you may find after a while you will have fuel blockages from the main tank, you can't fix them by draining the tank as there is a box type thing in the fuel tank which the pickup sits in, it's...

    Re: Coolant sensor location 1HDT

    G'day Jens, you'll find it on the right side of the oil filter, just under the manifold. Can be hard to see as the fuel lines are above it. You'll have to take the oil filter out to get to it, same...

    Re: Blending Diesel with Filtered Vegetable Oil?

    You're right Smithy, adding BD or vo increases the lubricity and makes engines run smoother. There have been many studies which support this, ultra low sulphur diesel, doesn't have the lubricity to...
