  1. Re: And then there was smoke as she ran away

    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.
    Be sure to check the...

    Re: Timing on Mercedes engine

    JJ, I believe it should be the same as on any of the OM60x or 66x series engines.
    On front of engine, 3 bolts around vacuum pump and one on back of IP to block. Yes, everything is in the way of it....

    Re: Timing on Mercedes engine

    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.
    Makes you think if the numbers are...

    Re: Timing on Mercedes engine

    Tilly, That was the "Roundie", not the W201 series. I do not believe it was offered in the USA (with their penchant for acceleration and speed.
    Heck, even the W123 300D got a turbo in USA. Not for...
  5. Re: Engine oil level increases between changes

    3DB,
    Water - Air intercoolers are really good for Petrol engines because they are on boost much less than diesels, which are on boost whenever over 2K RPM. For diesels, Air - Air intercoolers are...

    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)....
  7. Re: The chemistry of the glycerol (and soap) phase

    Tilly and WesleyB. Thank you for the precise numbers. It looks like my use of the atomic mass (10% accuracy) was reasonably accurate for a non-chemist.

    So, with the aid of the document I...
  8. Re: The chemistry of the glycerol (and soap) phase

    Mark, Can you please confirm my calculations of the Molar weights of the reactants?
    Is the molar weight of KOH (K (40) + O (16) + H (1)) 57?
    Is the molar weight of CH3OH (C (12) + H *4 (4) + O...

    Re: MUsso not pumping to injectors

    Jim, Tilly has the diagnosis correct I believe. The Immobiliser stops fuel flow to the IP.

    Removing the fuel cutoff is easy. No parts apart from a short length of fuel hose from the filter to the...
  14. Re: The chemistry of the glycerol (and soap) phase

    Mark,
    I did a quick Google and found (amongst others) http://www.arpnjournals.org/jeas/research_papers/rp_2016/jeas_0816_4863.pdf
    This gives the Molar ratios and the reaction coefficients for...

    [quote]Here is the equation: KOH + MeOH <-> MeOK + H2O[/]quote
    As you have stated previously, Le Chateleir's principle applies, but you do not give the proportions at STP for this reaction.

  16. Re: looking at converting my 2002 Landcruiser with 1HZ engine to WVO

    Paul, Good to hear. The veggie oil will kill off any "diesel Bug" in the fuel tank and the sloshing action will break up any clumps and allow the residues to pass thru the fuel lines to the fuel...

    Is this a vehicle with a diesel powered fuel heater? What purpose does the fuel heater serve in this application? Why would it need heating? Is this for using solid veggie oil?

    Re: Musso Fuel Gauge stuck at 3/4 tank

    Tilly, My Musso fuel gauge reads full now when I turn the ignition on, but only because I had a near full tank when the head / gasket went.
    I may pump the tank out, I may flush the IP with diesel in...

    How much Potassium methoxide is created when you add KOH to Methanol?

    Long term testing of these solenoid valves has shown that they suffer from overheating of the coil, leaving them fail in the de-energised state.
    To overcome this, I have used a 21W indicator lamp...
  24. Re: Mazda Bravo / Ford Courier 2.5 Turbodiesel on WVO Blends

    I believe that the BT50 has a Common Rail Diesel engine. As such it does not have an injector pump.
    The last of the mechanically injected diesels in the Mazda and Ford was in 2006.
  25. Re: Mazda Bravo / Ford Courier 2.5 Turbodiesel on WVO Blends

    Mark,
    Why would I need to remove the cat? The Musso has a Cat and it had no issues with veggie oil blends.
    Has anyone else needed to remove a Catalytic converter?
