Vormax heat exchanger

I just purchased a 1990 short school bus with a 6.2 detroit diesel engine. i would like to convert it to run WVO. It came with a Vormax Heat exchanger and filter, a model 500fg diesel fuel filter/water separator and a box of extra filters. what do you guys think about these parts?

Re: Vormax heat exchanger

I think plant drive or whatever they call themselves sold those. They used them on single tank installs.

Re: Vormax heat exchanger

i am trying to plan out the full system that i will need in the bus. eventually i want to be able to filter and use wvo on the road. i would like to have a dirty wvo tank that is filtered into a clean tank. From there another heater and filter to the injectors.

i am trying to decide
a) what else i need (pumps filters heaters)
b) in what order i should put them.

if i was building this from scratch i would go
dirty tank, pump, 20 micron, 10 micron, 2 micron filter into the clean tank.
from clean tank, pump, to flat plate heat exhanger to clear inline filter to electric heated lines to injectors.

i am trying to decide if i should use these parts in the first filtration system or from the tank to the engine? i am also worried about finding filters for these parts on the road.
