My Vegistroke is finally here

I just got out of the hospital so I can't install it this weekend but next weekend will be devoted to the vegistroke install. I can't wait to get at this stuff.

Yes. The tank is here and came through fine. Just waiting for me to get busy and do the install. I also have about 850 gals of WVO to filter and centrifuge so I have enough to keep me busy for a while.

Well I started on my Vegistroke install yesterday. I got all the mechanical work done except for the 2 lines to the back of the heads. I plan to do that and tackle the wiring today. It's the first time I have done this so I have been taking it nice and slow, which seems to be the only speed I have these days, lol.

On a sad note when I popped the hood I noticed that my truck has started puking. Not bad but it has never done it before. I'll be keeping an eye on that and planning my EGR delete real soon.

No. I burned myself out Sat. and ended up taking yesterday off. It is still mobile so it isn't too big of a deal.
