    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...
  5. Re: All Scania Euro 5 trucks can operate on B100

    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.

    Re: More Ssangyongs in the stable

    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...

    Re: Need a little tank for my buzzbox

    Yes I do remember you dropping in. Unfortunately I no longer have an excess of oil so can't offer any to passing forum members. Have lost my 2 largest suppliers to Oil guys or the like. While I have...

    Re: Need a little tank for my buzzbox

    You're on the right track, at tap in the bottom is very vulnerable in a foot well. Yes air can get in the hose and cause a problem, can't remember it being too much of a problem for me but it was a...

    Re: Need a little tank for my buzzbox

    Presume you want to put vege in the new tank ? I did that back on my Mk 2 version. Just used a 20 litre yellow plastic container or carboy. I had the inlet hose going thru the cap with a small...

    Re: Engine oil level increases between changes

    No the cold start is a shaft coming out the side with a lever, Spring and cylinder with 2 coolant hoses connected to it. 2 wires? One shut off solenoid, 2 tacho pickup.

    Re: Engine oil level increases between changes

    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...

    Re: And then there was smoke as she ran away

    A lot of people use catch cans but unless you have an EGR which you can't or won't disable then I see no point in them. With everything in good order a bit of oil going into the intake from the...

    Re: To convert or not

    Thanks Tony, I will use another filter for diesel and tee it in just before the IP. While the factory lift pump would work for both fuels, it makes it impossible to use seperate filters that's why I...

    Re: To convert or not

    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...

    To convert or not

    Re: Engine oil level increases between changes

    Don't think the facet would damage the seal but using one with a leaky front seal probably added fuel to the engine oil more quickly. A sure way to set the timing is to remove the timing gear cover...
