Thanks all for the replies. I think the low temp is caused by running 100% bio-diesel. They tend to run cooler. Now that I know, I am happy. Thanks again.

Thanks as usual for the help...

Bashby did a great jof of answering your question. My 7.3 has a Banks turbo on it so the sending unit has been moved. I put a tee on mine and hooked the factory sending unit back up as well as...

Smile Brewing temp got away from me

I had preheated the WVO to 145 deg and transferred it to my mix tank. I usually lose a few degrees in the transfer. It was about 137 deg prior to adding KOH/meth so I turned on external heater and...

You and bashby both have the same opinion. I just thought wheels would be easier but rear-end swap is the sensible thing to do. Thanks

The 3.55 gears sounds like a good idea. I am running LT235/85R16 now. You are right, it would be pretty pricey to buy wheels and tires and I never considered the mass.
Thanks for the info. I should...

Differential Gear Ratios

My 93 F-250 has a 410 rear-end in it. Instead of going with the time and trouble of changing it to a 373, I would like to put larger wheels and tires on it (at least on the rear). Does anyone know...

Bio-Diesel Users

Hey Fab-Man
Not many posts by BD users. We are still out there quietly "brewing" away.
Hope you are well. Love to hear any new "builds" you have accomplished.
All is well with me.
