Another DIY WVO Build

First I would like to thank vegginpsd and tubular031 for their help in building this schematic. I got a great parts list from tubular031 and vegginpsd explained how to get rid of the fuel bowl and reduce the number of parts from my first version. I will likely revise this with comments, and again when I get around to the install. Also a big thanks to everyone else on the forum as well as DFA. I learned in this section how the PSD fuel system works.

This is for my 95 OBS (94.5 to 97). I will be removing the mechanical fuel pump and fuel bowl. This is sort of an arial view, with tanks and such obviously moved for readability.

Here is the fuel system:




Here is the system with color coded coolant setup:



Here is a link to Tubular031's setup. he needs a plug as well since he helped with this. there are pics too: https://www.powerstroke.org/forum/bio...converted.html

for those who are not aware, he is referring to the fact that a 99-03 has an electric fuel pump stock, no mechanical one to remove. Just the fuel bowl, if you so choose. iirc the fuel enters the front of one head and the back of another on a 99-03, so adjust accordingly.

I will be for sure!!
I am going to start my pricing probably tomorrow ( very very general pricing on parts.) i will definitely need the expertise on here for that.

As far as the lines and that kinda thing it'll be fairly cheap as i have most of that from other projects...

There are better tank heaters out there but basically the AF has a coolant tube surounding the fuel pickup tube that extends down from the top of the tank to the bottom. They work ok for mildly cold climates but way up north they will give you problems if your oil has alot of FFA in it from animal fats or if you use PH oils.

2003 6.0 F350 dually on high cholesterol fuel (WVO)
2000 7.3 Excursion also on a high cholesterol fuel
