Drowning in Poly, my worst nightmare, now with pics!

So my truck has been coughing and leaking lately. Leaking fuel just to be clear.

I've got a new fuel pump, the one in the valley, and a hand full of 0-rings.

I'm pulling stuff apart and OMG my valley is a gelatinous blob of poly goo

I'm tearing into my truck today, like in the last 30 min

My fuel bowl has tons of POLY, and a the remains of a broken filter in it. The filter was from the PO of the truck.

I never drained the bowl or checked in there till now

There is poly EVERYWHERE up here in the valley, in the bowl, in the lines, in the banjo.........


And I have pics of everything. They will be up tomorrow.

Somebody pray for me, I'm going back in.....

why is there poly in your factory fuel bowl? Easy way out is to ditch all the lines right now and replace them with good year rubber lines.

youve been running veg a long time iirc. so you saved some money! minor setback here, good luck. i think you mentioned budget was a problem, so start saving for electric conversion!

im nearly done with mine, i plan on posting the conversion after i finish, all thats left is bowl and pump removal.

Good news guys, funding has been approved. And credit card numbers released

I'm going all out on this one

I might even take it as far as a new titan tank. Maybe......

Right now I'm gathering a parts list, and will be going full electric, and modeling it much like yours Ridiculous, almost exact. you drew up a good plan.

I'm thinking about using an Airdog system for the diesel, and a WVODesigns pump on the veg side.

Any thoughts on the air dog?

And Ridiculous, do you have any drive time on your set up yet? I haven't followed you close enough, but I knew you were on the verge of completion.

I will be reusing my Racor1000 on the veg, but relocating it to either the engine compartment, or under the bed with an access door.

I'll add in a Mercedes coolant pump, mounted on the return side, close to my fuel tank, switched so it only operates when on veg.

I'm debating the thought of 2 FPHexchangers, one in the valley, and one before the Racor.


I'm pumped about finally building my truck right, the shared fuel bowl design from the GoldenFuels kit was a total flop, the PO of my truck should be

But I got my feet wet, and learned allot. So...... Now we'll see if I actualy learned it right

My conclusion is incomplete purge cycles, the shared fuel bowl design of my current conversion set me up for imminent failure.

The airdog will be my d2 pump, I'll be using a wvodesigns pump for my WVO.

I'm now trying to find the "perfect" FPR.

Anyone have opinions on this fuel lab regulator?

515 Series - EFI -10AN inlets -6AN return



Here is the other one I like, it offers a higher flow capacity. But I'm wondering if it's over kill by a long shot?
