This ordeal started, when I bought my e99 F350. I didn't find out until after the purchase, that the PO had run WVO through it. I have no source for WVO, but have access to a lot of WMO. I thin it with kero and run it through 5 filters and a centrifuge.
After running one tank of my WMO through it, it started smoking quite a bit at idle and low throttle. It then started missing. Thinking I had a hung injector, the PO brought another set of AB injectors to me and also installed them for me. The truck ran flawless for a week, then started smoking again. It now has a slight fuel knock on one cylinder. The truck is parked again, until I can figure out what to do next.
I'm not here, to debate the use of WMO. I do believe that it has possibly loosened the WVO residue in the fuel system and has one or more things clogged. If I may be wrong about this, please let me know. I'm looking for possibilities and things to check/clean. I have a set of AD injectors that I can put in the truck, if need be. I would like to be fairly sure that this problem won't happen a third time. I cannot afford yet another set of injectors.
If anyone has any suggestions on things for me to check/clean, please let me know. I have a schrader valve coming for it, to check the fuel pressure and need to know what else to look for.
Thanks in advance... I really need the help!
P.S. This picture is from the first time it was smoking. It looks almost identical now, except the smoke is more gray.
