Re: Making Biodiesel

There are some interesting articles out there on fermenting glycerol into ethanol or butanol for instance.
Might be worth looking into if you are still struggling with the glycerol disposal issue.
After purification that ethanol or butanol could potentially be used to make more biodiesel ...

Re: installing a fuel cell

Out of curiosity, would you happen to have the ohm specs for the original fuel sender?

The 96-97 Rodeo/Passport factory manual listed the ohm readings for each 1/8 tank level from empty to full.

Re: Moving of the drop down resistor (just a curiosity)

It might make a difference to the longevity of the resistor, even if it does not impact starting / running.

Re: Super Trooper Restoration

Warrior, there are wires for the shift solenoids and another for the TCC lock-up, people have done discrete toggle switches for gear control in the past. Another option is to get a rail shifter similar to this one: http://radesignsproducts.com/Rail.html to control the gear more intuitively. You woul...

Re: Diesel HPR

That sounds like they fully hydrogenate the oils (think making margarine from vegetable oil) then crack them to shorten the average chain length to near petro-diesel spec. So no trans-esterification like in biodiesel, which adds 1 or 2 C to the oil based on if you are using Ethanol or Methanol. I of...

Re: diesel circulating coolant heaters

I think they are typically rated in degrees/hr, you could go higher wattage for less time. So if a 1000 Watt unit does 4F/hr, you might be able to find a 2000 Watt unit that does 8F/hr and run that for 30 minutes to increase coolant temp by 4F instead of the 2F of running the 1000 Watt for 30 min. T...

Re: Exhaust header for C223..does it exist?

You could always go the route of building a plastic pipe mock-up and have some made from that mock-up in stainless.

Re: Power steering pump

My Rodeo one is worded something like "use only Dexron IIE Power Steering Fluid".
May have been Dexron IIIE, 3 instead of 2 don't have it handy at the moment.

Re: Glow plug power supply question.

No experience wrenching on a c223, but I err on the side of putting in fuses.
Fuses and fuse boxes are cheap, fires are expensive.

Re: Hello, I must be going

Parts for older Isuzus must be getting scarce to find, if people are resorting to thievery.
