WVO in an OBS

I have been looking for a ford diesel for a while to do a wvo kit on for a while. About 10pm I get a phone call from a guy looking to trade me his 95 7.3L for my k5 GMC. What all is involved with the swap. I've read about needing the newer electric fuel pumps and modifying the fuel bowl. I'm gonna check this truck out but if its running good ill prob do the swap

There isn't "allot" involved but it is a critical process. Do it right, do it once.

I prefer to run 2 totally separate fuel systems, including separate fuel pumps and filters.

Converting your truck on the cheap, will only get you problems further down the road.
Read every post in here, and then read them again.
Lots of good info to be had.

I guess my big question is with the vegistroke kit to be on an OBS there are some mods to the kit/truck fuel pump and bowl. Frybrid makes a kit for the OBS I can't find much info on it other than its half the price. I'm not so worried about the cost as I am having a solid set up. I've been reading a lot. Lot of good info. Sometimes u get a better response by asking

I take it you're wanting to run on straight WVO? I''m running mine at around 30-50% with no modification at all

first off nice rig!!!!!

see thats why i ask questions. this is the first ive heard of this also. so you are just using as a fuel additive basically?

i try to search as much as i can but 99% of my internet searching is done via cell phone so it has its limitations. if i spend a day or so searching i start asking. i seem to find more and more variations of how people are running this stuff

Ya basically. I don't run that much consistently, its more as I get it and as I have time to filter it. In colder months I don't use much but when it's warmer I do as much as 50% and it handles it fine. I change my fuel filter every 10K because it will definitely clog up quicker with WVO

Frybrids kit may be cheaper but you will wait forever to get them. Customer service is terrible.
The best way to run SVO is to keep it out of your stock system.
