Welcome to the VEGGIE-SIDE!

to thought of running on just diesel anymore.


That TIT assembly (I didn't get it until just now...) looks like it should work better than the hose/compression way. I personally can never get donuted compression fittings to seat right so I try to avoid them, to easy to overtighten. HOH/FPHE for me. mixing oil and coolant in the same fitting worries me for the long haul.

The thinner the inner tube wall material the better heat transfer you will get, can you spiral the inner tube to get more surface area for transfer?

VEG-ON,

thanks guys. Ya, havn't been a fan of the compression fittings, let alone stripped a few building the TIH assy. Thought of the all aluminum thee other day, so hit up McMaster-Carr, and bam, parts in stock(not far from me). Using .039 wall and .049 wall 1in tube, think it'll get plenty hot, being its 5ft long, and with the FPHE in the box, and manifold mounted in the valley of motor...didnt process the oil fast enough so today, wasting 25buks in D2..

Brother will have the tube all welded up by tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes. Funny thing is now, last 2 days, darn TIH asy HAS YET to leak...there went 70 buks in material..
