dear dana:

re '82 300 sd vegoil conversion:

you mentioned heat exchangers, have you tried this guys stuff? His name is omar, and the thread with pricing is here:

http://biodiesel.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/159605551/m/1951022621/r/9601032621#9601032621

 

people say his exchangers work well, I'd think a copper 16 or not much more for 26 plates would work well, at an apparent price of 55-75 dollars, seems like a good deal.

thanks

In fact I used over 300 16 plate heat exchangers last year. I have recently switched to Kaori FPHE units (they were cheaper and just as good as those from a different manufacturer I previously used) and try to keep at least 50 (as well as 5/8" and 3/8" hose barb adapters for them) in stock for fleet conversions.  These are the 16 plate Kaori heat exchangers with 1/2" FNPT ports...and I DO feel they are a very good addition..if not a "must have" component.. for nearly any modern VO conversion.

 

I have been providing them to infopop forum members from my stock for $85 each including "3 day" priority mail shipping.  I doubt that you can find them for $55-$75 anywhere...but if you do please post a link here. That would be a very good deal!

By the way,

I think those prices are wrong once in a while osmo sells stuff on ebay, but I don't think that link I gave you has current prices.

thanks
