DIY WVO system?

ok guys i have been colleting wvo for the last 6 months i have about 2600 gallons of filtered wvo (i have a filtering system and centerfuge) and i have been building a bio system but now it just not something i want it is going to cost to much to make bio and i wont benifit to much. so my question is can i make my own WVO system for my truck i know about vegistroke and those systems i just cant afford that and i know if i can get a little help i can build one. i have already drawn out my plans for a heated bed tank i am going to start building that soon. and i dont need onboard filtering. so any help here would be great?
Thanks in advanced

Are you by chance in Texas??? It would be easy to show you my truck. If not let me know and I will post any pics and explain the best I can. The 7.3L is by far the easiest truck and best suited for wvo.

i have some components you will need like FASS pump mounted on a heat exchanger block, a filter base for a donaldson filter like the vegistroke uses...a switching solidoid valve...all kinds of goodies for sale. And other than that, all you need is some hose - i have a bunch of that too - banjo bolts for the rear of the heads, check valves for the front of the heads. And some fittings for the hose.

Which truck are you putting it on? Your OBS or the 2000? I would try to duplicate the vegistorke style system like all the parts that Clay has minus the banjo fitting, 7.3s have 1/8' pipe fittings. The purging design is so much better and no contamination into your diesel supply.

Someone on the forum from Golden, CO is selling a vegistroke so you might be able to work out a deal.

I have no pics at the moment. Let me get back to you on the price.
Meanwhile, hears the pump

The pump is mounted on the module, plumbed to the filter base and purge valve. Its all ready to hook up. It was all hooked together with a wire harness with a automatic controler but i would just hook this up manually with a switch i think because there is no instructions anymore for this older system. Simply a power switch to the pump, another switch to turn off y our stock pump and a purge switch and your set.

What's your budget? I can suggest specific components from various vendors as well as certain items from eBay to complete your system. My '97 was converted in May '06 so I know it like the back of my hand. I felt so confident in my conversion ability that I did a custom two tank install in my Mercedes this fall ordering specific components from various vendors since none had a complete kit that was EXACTLY what I wanted. I actually like my Mercedes conversion better since I designed, selected the components and did the install myself.
