94 F250 question

Hi all

I'm looking at a potential SVO conversion kit for my 94 PS F250

This is an exceptional candidate for conversion due to the 2 fuel tanks.

How are the fuel lines set up with the 2 tanks? Are there two independent fuel lines? Basically, would I be able to modify one fuel line and leave the other alone?

Are there any members on here that have had success with this type of conversion?

Thanks

You would need to run separate fuel lines for you wvo tank, you basically make a seperate fuel system from the wvo tank to the motor. It's easy to make your own tube in hose heated fuel line. Leave the fuel lines alone from your dedicated diesel fuel tank, you don't need to modify those. This conversion is no different than any other two tank powerstroke conversion. And yes your 1994 is a great candidate for wvo conversion, the 7.3 is probably on of the easiest motor to convert to wvo.

But I want to explore using the 2nd tank thats already installed in the vehicle--- would just make everything easier. Thoughts?

Ya you can drop either tank (front or rear) and convert it to a wvo tank. No need to buy a separate tank.

Each tank has its own supply (3/8"ID) and return (5/16") and join at the fuel switching valve (Pollak valve) where there is one supply to and one return from the engine.

Yup

Me. Two and a half years (25+K miles) on WVO with the PlantDrive kit.
