Dinger 95,
I'll deliver it if you'll go for $1.00 per gallon.

Waste Veggy oil available

I have 100 gallons of soy WVO for sale. It is contained in two 50 gallon white plastic drums. I am moving and won't have time to process it into B-100.
$0.75 per gallon.

Re: Isuzu c223T accelerating problem

You have a gross symptom. The solution is probably simple as already mentioned with a possible sticking cable.

Jerry, Sounds like a good plan and yes the wiring harness Glow Plug stuff is essential.

Re: Weight of components and removal

Jack, roger that on the cherry picker. A buddy has a heavy duty 2 ton but I'll double check the actual extended capacity.

Re: Weight of components and removal

Jack,
OK. Sounds like good advice about the lift height.. I'll be doing this in the garage so it is a serious consideration.
Thanks!

Weight of components and removal

What is the weight of the engine? What is the weigh of a 5 speed tranny? I am asking to prepare to remove them from my dead truck and want to have a hoist of the correct capacity. Any tricks/suggestions on removing? IIRC it is easier to pull the engine and tranny together. Is that still true. (2 whe...

Re: Bad Day on my street

To all my Isuzu friends, Thank you for the fast replies. I'll be looking at the links and suggestions. The frame on my truck is now split in two places. I think this is more than a cab swap out. I have welded the frame (70%) but the impact really tore out several hard points and whacked things up qu...

Bad Day on my street

Across the street backed out of his driveway and this is the result. Dead. Two frame fractures and other most likely non salvageable damage. I am quite upset as I have a lot of time and 300 gallons of fuel to process for it.

Re: Random Engine noise at higher speeds.

IIRC the fan has a clutch on it. When the temperature is hot enough the clutch "swells up" making a fairly solid connection between the fan hub and the shaft. Is it possible that you have a string or flap of material that has peeled off one of the drive belts? (I forget if you have AC or n...

Re: Biodiesel as solvent

Phil, B-100 is 100% Bio-diesel. Look for a local making his.her own to ask about buying some. Typically you don't see B-100 being sold commercially. If you live near an airport that services jest you ma be able to scrounge some JP-8 from their fuel sample/waste tank. (Ask permission of course first)...

Re: Biodiesel as solvent

Yes it is a good solvent. It will remove paint, loosen grease and crud. It also seems to be good at being reused. Just let the crud settle to the bottom of a container and pour off the good stuff on top.
