Hello To everyone.
Let me please introduce my self
My name is Victor. Me and my girlfriend Caro, are a couple from Chile who came to Canada for a year with a working holiday visa. In 1,5 more month, we are going to start our dream, a trip from Alaska to Chile on a WVO 96 powerstroke camper truck.
We think this is the mos interesting way to do it, recycling and saving money.
Second, I would like to thanks everyone in this board, the information you guys provide is AMAZING. I have to say that 1 year ago I didn't know anything about diesel trucks, now Im working on my truck on a basic level, and understanding 100 times more how they work and how to fix and test a lot of things, saving me a lot of headaches, time and money.
Ok, and now the questions.
We are going to convert the truck soon.
I ask an experienced person in WVO conversion here in Canada, to help us with this. We have the two tanks (we want to use one for the oil) and the control valve switch so, according to the mechanic, we just need a heated filter, hotplate, and fuel line, coolant line.
Unfortunately he got a new job so he doesn't have time to help any more or do the conversion...
Doing my own research I check that most of the powerstroke kits come wit an oil pump, and I ask him about this part. He sat we dont need the oil pump.
So my first question
is: Do I need an oil pump for the conversion, yes/no and why?
Second. Im checking my options to buy the parts. WVO designs, plantdrive.ca, IS there anyone you can recommend?
Finally , the filtration system, We are going to filter on the road, so we think the best way is with a centrifuge. Any recommendations. I checked WVO RAW power and pabiodiesel centriguges.
Any feedback will be highly appreciated
Thanks again and Im sure more questions are on the way
