with all the sheet metal that is coming off the inside, i am going to have plenty to wall up that window openings that i want covered, and shield my battery box, aux fuel tank, genny box, and black tank. i decided to put my potable tank(1-55 gal barrel) on the roof. one, this saves me on using a pump, and for when the water gets low and my pressure isn't what i would like, i'll be able to put a regulated air line into the tank to pressurize whats left.
been looking at centrifuges also. still trying to figure out how to use the engine to push the oil, instead of an electric pump. i have an idea to use a gear pump, mounted to a pulley that is turned by one of the belts on the engine. the output is then regulated to 90psi and roughly 1gpm. haven't found anyone who knows if this has been done, nor have i found anyone that has told me it wouldn't work. the only thing that keeps me from trying is the $300+ pump from McMaster that i want to use.
other than that we have the money for the oil bypass filter system, so that will be ordered this week. any body ever put one of these on an international 7.3?
any help would be much obliged.

I HAVE A 1974 GMC 6000 CARPENTER WITH A 454 CHEVY THAT I'M GOING TO PUT ON BOARD AIR ON IT. I ALSO HAVE A 1971 CHEVY 4 X 4 THAT ALREADY HAS IT. I CONVERTED A AC PUMP TO A AIR COMPRESSOR. I USED THE OLD LONG GM PUMP AND PUT A TANK ON AND I HAVE 2 POP OFF VALVES 1 AT THE PUMP THAT IS FOR AHOT WATER TANK IN 1999 I PAID $12 FOR IT AND 1 ON THE TANK THAT IS AJUSTABLE AND I GOT IT ON THE TANK WHICH CAME OFF A LARGE TRUCK, AND IN MY OPION THOSE 12 VOLT PUMPS ARE SLOW AND LIMITED ON WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH. LIKE I CAN SET TIRE BEEDS, LIKE 17/40/15 GUMBOES THAT I HAVE ON THE TRUCK AND RUN AIR TOOLS. IT RUN AIR OF 150 PSI IN JUST A COUPLE OF MINUTES, AND YOU CAN PUT IT TOGETHER PRETY CHEAP DEPENDING THE APPLICATION AND WEATHER YOU CAN FIND ALL THE PARTS FOR YOUR MOTOR OR IF YOU CAN FAB YOU CAN PUT OTHER PUMPS ON THE MOTOR. IT IS LIKE HAVING A NORMAL AIR COMPRESSOR. BUT IF YOU JUST HAVE TO HAVE A 12 VOLT PUMP GO http://WWW.FBIRIDES.COM THAY HAVE 12 VOLT PUMPS THAY ARE NOT AS CHEAP A THE OTHER STYLE OF PUMP.
