    Fuel leak...

    DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE SENSOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You WILL crack the regulator housing! I know this from first hand experience. The sensor has tapered threads and the further in you tighten it the more it wants to spread the hole and it WILL crack it. Rick H...

    Hi Girl Mark! things are slow around here! The Midwest is starting to look like the left coast! Oil sources drying up, renders buying out from under us Homebrewers! But we knew this time would come. I stop making custom machines I just can not compete price wise with the plastic tank systems...

    Utah Bio kit or plans, anyone got?

    Ryan, Have you not gotten started YET! I have 100% confidence in Graydon. He and the stuff he sells are top self. I have not seen the plans he sells, but knowing him, they will be worth it! What are you thinking of building? There are others available that are well done. A quick google search...

    Red FUEL FILTER Light

    I already installed the Hot Fox in tank unit in the 110 gal aux tank. Seems to work pretty good. Am looking at adding the Auto bypass.

    Red FUEL FILTER Light

    Interesting. I guess I missed it or I saw it and can not recall. I normally watch those type of shows. Maybe making the thread go south but does your Big Truck have heated fuel tanks? If so how? Rick H...

    Red FUEL FILTER Light

    Ok you got caught. I will admit I got caught once 2 years ago with the Biodiesel, -7f, but it cleared on its own after the heated filter had time to work with the key on. I will start adding Arctic Express in late December. I guess in the end you can never really beat Mother Nature! What do you...

    Red FUEL FILTER Light

    What was the temp when you had the problem? Do they not blend the fuel up there? When I checked mine, it was broken away from the solder seats. I cleaned with lacquer thinner and soldered the wire back down with a heavy duty soldering gun. Its been working for 2 years now. Rick H...

    Help Needed 1995 7.3 PS with low power when cold and slow acceleration

    Either bad wiring harness under valve cover or IDM went into fail safe which may have been caused by a bad wiring harness. Since you had it diagnosed and know which side it is, thats the under valve cover harness to check. Look at the connector that goes through the valve cover, examine the...

    Plant drive kit install

    Running WVO and not knowing when the last time GP's were changed would cause me to recommend you get them changed NOW, before they get to big with build up and you can not get them out of the head. Rick H...

    Swaping motor to a new cab

    Are both vehs Diesel to start with? There is no real need to remove the front clip, once engine is up, start to spin it side ways and it will come out fine. Rick H...

    Circulating Tank Coolant heater

    Yep I found that, just no specific install instructions. The other thing is it is a 20 amp so it has a different male plug arrangement than normal 120 volt 15 amp. I am thinking this thing is to big, it is rated for like 1,500 cubic inch engine! But I bet it would keep the B100 nice and warm as...

    Circulating Tank Coolant heater

    Thats what I thought, when you say comes from the head you mean the pass side head towards the front of the veh? I am wanting to use the hot fox in the 110 gal aux tank so we can do 100% Biodiesel year round. The unit is a Zerostart 3305004, its a little over sized @ 2250 watts but its what...

    Circulating Tank Coolant heater

    Anyone ever install one? I have a very large one, 2250 watt but no instructions and nothing from the manufacture either. These work off of Thermosiphon so I know there is a certain way to hook it up so it works properly, just can not find any info on them. What lines to tap into. My...

    Plant drive kit install

    Loosing the stock filter bowl is a bad thing IMO. You loose the heater. My 96 has the electric, fuel bowl delete fuel system and I fight with it to run BD. Wishing I had it back or I need to spend the 120 bucks to add the heater kit to the 2 fuel filters I used on the electric conversion...

    Plant drive kit install

    Changing OBS fuel pump ain't that bad.... You will need an 1 1/4" wench and a torch to heat the boxed end of the wrench to tweak the angle. Makes getting at the banjo nut a little easier. Also, if you remove the Fuel pressure regulator to clean the screen or replace the O rings, DO NOT OVER...

    Found B100- Got Some Questions

    19 would be nice! Driving habits I guess, when the speed limit says 70 to me that means up hill as well! I never get much above 19 with the 96 and the 3.73 gears. I should try it stock on a trip. I have supertuners safe mode loaded. Maybe a custom chip from Tony would help. Rick H...

    70,000 mile on Biodiesel 7.3 report

    Well the 97 just turned 200,000 last week. I have well over 70,000 on 100% homemade Biodiesel, about 9 months of the year due to weather, other 3 months we blend with pump fuel, dead of winter 30% bio, on either side of dead of winter, 75% BD. I just replaced my 3rd fuel pump due to leakage...

    I have seen an injector that came out of a PSD that was doing this, it was not a pretty site and the reason he had to change it is a direct result of the mixing. I am not recalling what percentage he was using. Rick H...

    Guage Temps

    Thats a tranny that will soon give up the ghost. High temps all the time even when empty tells me the TC is probably slipping. If he does not have an after market cooler, he might want to get one to help extend the life of that thing. 140 normal, 160-180 towing. 32,000 GVW rated stacked...
