Vegiestroke Installed on 7.3L

I just wanted to let everyone know I just completed the install. Best of all the truck started and switched over to vegie after about 15 minutes of ideling. I must say I was stressed about this install because I have never tried something like this before...but is was not bad at all. It was easy. Clay and Marv you are the reason I went with the vegiestroke. Thanks for all of your help. For those of you on the fence the instructions were straight forward and the kit was complete. I would recomend the Vegiestroke and DFA to anyone.

Change what O rings? are you talking about the injector O rings? Biodiesel may over time have some effect on on the stock diesel system, but WVO doesnt harm anything.

Congrats on the install, it's by far the best modification that you can do to your truck. Does it have a manual override so when your truck is idling for long periods of time you can switch back to diesel??? Whenever I let my truck idle for more than 10 minutes or so I always idle on diesel.

Due to the animal fats and PHO, wet stacking is a problem while idling on WVO.

I do the same thing. Wet stacking is not good even with diesel and I want to avoid it even more with WVO. Whether or not the consequences of wet stacking are worse with WVO than diesel, I don't know, but it seems to me that they would be.

When you convert to the Vegiestroke you have to add two check valves to the factory fuel system. DFA (Vegiestroke) tells you to change the degerdaded o rings before putting the fuel lines back on. They were degerdaded (from diesel) but the best thing was the new ones come in your Vegiestroke kit.
