I used a cheap $25 temp gauge and regret it, I would get the same one Gary is using if I was buying one now, and may get one soon to replace mine. I ran tubbing right into the cabin for my pressure gauge works good but not the safest option, because of the risk of leaking fuel into your cabin. I really can't stress how important the gauges are. I moved things around a lot on my system and even small changes have effects on how much and how fast you get heat, maintain fuel pressure.

First off, you should loop the veggie return line.
Second, if your oil is hot it will filter better, so put your filter after the heat exchanger, both under that hood.
Don't buy pollack solinoids, they suck, and break.
Consider a hotfox pick-up.

As far as the pump goes, I'd say that you don't need one, even though (correct me if i'm wrong) the IP is the pump for the diesel and the veggie.

Science,
Where does your return loop feed back into the supply line?
If you understood, you'd understand.

I'm so impressed by clean engines that look nice. I keep my engines clean but they don't look nice. Thanks for the questions and answers as I'm planning similar work
