RN is nearly done with his conversion. hook up the veg line to the CV, purge both sides, then fill line with coolant and attach fittings and done! about an hour or so work left.
i have been taking pics, so i will share those as well, along with adjusting my DIY post to match parts used. i hope to be done this week. its raining until wednesday for now.
what is the climate where you live? this will help us help you on fuel pickup decision. but i am enclined to say, hotfox is your best best. if your in Canada we will go a step further.
1. dont use a hand pump. been there. get an electric pump or make a super sucker. best option is if you can collect indoors with a 5 gallon bucket or origional cubies. espicailly if you dont have a centrifuge.
1a. supersucker is an old propane tank. X number of gallons, put a vacuum pump on it, pull vacuum, and use that to suck oil from your source, then attach it to an air compressor to emtpy at home.
2. if you are filtering without a fuge, consider spin on fitlers, 2 or 3, placed after an electric pump, push the oil through the spin ons. less mess that way. in either case, save for a centrifuge. better filteration, and can be left unattended and no mess.
3. i have used electric heat for a couple of years. works fine, but i only have 110v available. its very slow. i will now be using propane, 55 gal drum, $25 propane weed torch from harbor freight, and propane cylinder. about $50.
im glad to hear your doing a DIY. its best to know how your system works, ground up! i dont know that i have pics of the bowl and pump. but i do have pics of the bowl and pump delete. as well as the useage of the stock banjo bolt.
