thank you,

the biggest problem so far is finding parts. we live in glens falls, ny, and while it is not the great metropolis... there are big tuck needs and tractor needs. I figured finding 1/2 id hose would be easier. Just because a station sells deisel, does NOT mean they sell the corect oil.

being 3 years recovery from a major auto accident, #1 you are going to have to be very big to dent me now, #2 I want my jacuzzi
#3 we wanted to be able to drive to arizona for the winter. (a plate in your face is weird in the cold wind.)

we got our kit througha guy in New Hampshire. I chose him because he noted that he went out one morning to find his filter frozen on.
we intend now to have a portable filter station, with reuseable racor filters.

anyone w/ an idea for a custom 500 gal tank in back would be welcome.

we also will help any and all w/ conversions. If I can do it.. anyone can

well we will have more pics for the finished work, but man oh man i thought i was nearly finished when on the side of the road was a crappy old rv for $550. ooops we ripped it apart and restarted. the rv destruction is http://mysite.verizon.net/vze6ttry/b...iebus/id5.html

we are so psyched. anyway after much work the preheater we had was absolutly worthless for our purposes, so we got a preheater run on the radiator fluid, and now must somehow install that behemoth into our engine. Good thing being is that is will work for all diesel type fuels as well as veggie oil. It is hard to believe we have had it three years and have had so much fun already. 4 festivals and counting. she made a trip from our home base in glens falls up the catskills to NY State Harvest Fest pulling my PA Trailer. A bit slow up the mountian, but then looking around us we were not the only ones.
