Time to replace GC valves

Went to clean them this morning ( I noticed on their website that it now says to clean them every 1000 miles). Opened them up and they are full of poly and the veggie valve is stuck open meaning its always burning whats in veggie tank. Im not sure what they cost to replace but many of you have told me to get rid of them since they are small for my 7.3 motor. So my question is which valves and from who?I would like to be able to keep the greasecar wiring plugs to make it easier on me. I've been told hydraforce but not sure which kind. I'm ordering on monday so opinions are going to matter here.

No, its not IMHO. Its time to get rid of them. You dont need ANY three way valves on your truck period.

If you need a purge valve-------->

Spend the $200 on something useful like a D2 pump. Save the tank, HIH, filter head, copilot and sh!t can the rest! (block, valves, fitting, anything not Ford)

As far as GC wiring- The whole system CAN be controlled with a single wire from the Copilot.

so what do I use instead of what I have right now? When you say no 3-way valves you mean no Frybrid, hydraforce etc..?

I think we should ask Matt to make another graphic like this showing a double deadhead sytem with/without a purge valve.

Another DIY WVO Build

I would post a link to the DIY WVO components link, but the search sucks so bad I cant even find my own thread. It would be nice if it were a sticky.....

Found it

DIY WVO Components


I have recently found anpother real good source for tank heat exchanger comonents. Just have not had time to add it to the components list.
