    Re: diesel bug

    Can you use the return line to get fuel to the engine? Swap the fuel delivery and return lines and disconnect the power to the in-tank fuel pump. Install a cheap inline fuel pump and a fuel strainer...

    Are you going commercial on the snow globe market?
  3. Room Temperature Biodiesel process

    One of our WARFA members is using a room temperature process to make biodiesel.

    Re: 1st time WVO blending

    Biodiesel in the fuel tank does kill Diesel Bug, so does WVO.

    Re: 1st time WVO blending

    I still use bog standard rubber fuel hose with WVO (blended with 10-14% ULP).
    I have used it for years with no significant degradation.
    Biodiesel, though, will degrade the rubber fuel hose rapidly.

    Re: 1st time WVO blending

    Why not get a few of these prefilters? They can be back flushed with petrol to clean them. They are the prefilter for a Mercedes 300D ('77-'84)
  9. Re: Difference between Biodiesel & Methylated seed oil

    Biodiesel does not evaporate as fast as petroleum diesel as it has fewer volatile components.

    I did search for making methylated seed oils.
    The only information I could locate was:

  10. Re: Difference between Biodiesel & Methylated seed oil

    Of that I am not sure. Vegetable oils are derived mainly from the seeds of crops (eg Canola, Linseed, Grape seed, etc). Vegetable oils can be esterified to make biodiesel, using methanol and a strong...

    Re: Coking and valve deposits

    Tilly,
    There is not much to compare between the Musso 2.9 and the Ford 7.3.
    The Musso has an IDI engine, and Ford 7.3 is a CRD engine, so your example is like comparing a Holden from the 70s with...

    Re: Musso Filter Heater

    The fuel lift pump is on the side of the injection pump. Look for 2 fuel lines on the side of the Injection pump.
    The Fuse box in the engine bay F2 and F3 are Ign. F2 for Air bag, F3 for ABS.
    As...

    Re: Musso Filter Heater

    Consider looping the return line from the filter back into the feed line from the fuel tank. The hot oil will be recirculated back into the filter, picking up more heat from the lift pump.

    From expanded diagrams I found, the Injector Pump (IP) looks to be driven by cams on the engine, as such, it looks to be eminently suitable for (heated) straight vegetable oil.

    I have seen their trucks in Perth too.
    They do not have much of the market here as far as I can see.

    Re: Musso Filter Heater

    I thought about this today and if you do not need a lot of heat, then recovering the heat from the return line would help raise the temperature of the oil going to the fuel filter.
    You could use 2...
