Any last pointers?
Basically, I am setting up a wvo system for the first time, and am designing a system to get my feet wet. Instead od hard wiring everything within the chassis of the bus, (oh yeah a 1989 BB TC 2000 5.9 turbo which I can see while driving with cover up and cummins AT545), I am setting up a system directly behind my drivers seat. 2 reasons: 1-to minimize the distance between the motor and tank and 2- Be able to see everything going on and spot any leaks/issues without having to stop and go under the bus.
Using pex as a heat exchanger coiled within a 55 gallon drum.
My motor has a spicket on it which opens and closes to allow coolant to flow towards the rear heater of the bus. I will reroute the coolant to the veggie tank right after the valve. That way I can shut off the flow to the veggie sys if anything starts leaking, which by the way was very useful today when I was tasting my fitting connections while driving.
Will pretty much any large 12v diesel lift pump be able to move hot oil? Pretty much mount the pump between the tank and the filter, then to the IP right? It's hard to find a lot of this stuff up here in the mountains and I have to go to Denver to find most stuff. Can I just take fuel tank selector valve/s off of any diesel truck? Solinoid or mechanical better?
Gonna use 3/8 copper as fuel line with just hoh for now until I make a hih. Copper on 5/8 heater hose with insulation, sound like enough?
Will heater hose wrapped around my racor 1000 be good enough to heat it?
Going to be ready to "flip the switch" within the next couple of days, any last pointers?
