cheap DIY WVO/WMO for a IDI

Does anyone have plans for a cheap(removable would be great) 100% WVO/WMO kit that would work on a pre-powerstroke 6.9 or 7.3? my plan is to buy a cheap(most likely pretty rusty ect) IDI and run it on either WVO or WMO(dont know which yet) and when i get enough cash for a better condition IDI I will transplant the system to the new truck.

if you are looking for a cheap kit to transfer off the IDI to a newer truck, its probably best that you design it yourself. you going to end up changing out and adding several components anyway when you move to a newer truck. all the kits our there are vehicle and engine specific.

greasecar and gfs have kits. maybe frybrid. for the most part you could move the kit over. would need minimal repalcment fittings an such i would think. im not too familiar with the old IDI's but know setup should be a snap. if your up to it, you could probably build your own kit under $600.

this is exactly what i want to do. I'v looked at all thoughs kits and there out of my reach, plus i like building things. I just need to find a set of plans so I can buy a truck, and start putting it together.

first find a truck, or plan on a truck that you want to buy, then build the plans according to the trucks fuel system. maybe someone on here knows a bit about the old 7.3 and 6.9 IDI fuel systems that can lend a hand.

i would imagine you would need to splice in to the fuel like at the IP, which may mean you might need an electric lift pump. then for the wvo side a wvo pump. i assume 7-15 psi is what were talking? nothing much... a hose in hose and tank, then electrical. just a brief idea of what i envision, again hopefully someone who actually knows the IDI will chime in.

Thank you, i'v looked all over and can't find any plans for idi's heck powerstroke plans are all over. But I like the fact that the idi's are all mechanical, and relatively cheap(both to buy and repair) compared to the powerstroke's. Plus i'v also read their more tolerant to WMO/WVO. That's why I picked the idi.
