    Re: Using the tote?

    The biodiesel reaction will proceed (albeit slowly) at 20C, so the temperature should not be an issue.

    Re: My first wash. AARGGHH

    Can you get a liner for your bund?
    If you need to take the setup down, it would be a good opportunity to make your bund a whole lot better.

    Re: 1hz pump rebuilt costs

    Get the dealership to commit to a warranty on the rebuilt pump. I would suggest 20 - 50KKm.
    Unfortunately, they are unlikely to honour it if you use veggie oil or biodiesel in it.

    Re: Indonesia goes to B50 next year

    It is hard to determine exactly what they are doing. At first glance it appears that they are talking about Palm sourced Biodiesel, then blends of palm oil and finally back to palm oil biodiesel.

    Re: Shitbox Rally October 2019

    This month I have started using a veggie blend in my 2004 Ssangyong Rexton. To minimise replacement of the main fuel filter, I use one of these...

    Hi Culley,
    I had similar issues with a blend until the IP died. I have now found the cause of the IP failure. someone had water in their fuel tank and added a heap of metho to the tank to clean it...

    Re: More Ssangyongs in the stable

    We were talking about fuel systems, which is why I was talking about the IP.

    You could get an IP from a pre 2000 Musso as they had the NA version of this engine.

    Re: More Ssangyongs in the stable

    JJ, These have a Mercedes designed 5 cylinder turbo intercooled IDI engine with inline Injector pump.
    Just the bees knees for veggie oil.
    Much less power than the courier, but no fuel issues. The...

    More Ssangyongs in the stable

    Following the demise of my Ssangyong Musso early this year, I have been trying a Ford Courier 4X4 on veggie but it wasn't happy, so I have gone back to Ssangyong for transport.
    I bought a Musso 4X4...

    Re: Need a little tank for my buzzbox

    Alga,
    While I have done this before, I also see some potential hazards in having fuel under the bonnet. Even veggie oil can burst into flames if it hits very hot metal. If you plan to do this for...

    Re: Alternator opinions sought

    An alternator should spin freely because there are only the bearings to cause friction.
    Alternator with vacuum pump is totally different as the vacuum pump may be a vane pump or a diaphragm type...

    They are available as 2 wire (you need a double pole, double throw switch wired as a reversing switch) 3 wire, (a single pole double throw switch will do) or 5 wire...

    It is good that you recognised the symptoms of self fueling from the sump oil (via the turbo seal) you most likely have dodged the bullet and survived without any engine damage.

    Tilly, I was mainly commenting on the year of the one you gave the 0-60 time for.
    Yes, those numbers are pretty good for a 1965 car, especially for a diesel.

    Re: Timing on Mercedes engine

    Johnnojack. The IP rotates in the same direction as the crankshaft. (Clockwise), so you should adjust the IP in an anticlockwise direction to advance injection (top of IP moves closer to block)....
