(under construction)
Prefilter How-to files are available for purchase at:
http://voconversionbasics.websitetoolbox.com/post?id=3648228&pid=35152080#post35152080  The most appropriate for non commercial WVO fuel users is the Simple Handpump Prefilter Unit. It is a prefilter AND dewatering unit which also incorporates a 30 gallon reservoir for ready to use WVO fuel and a dispensing pump/safety filter. This allows one to simply pour most wvo into the top and pump ready to use (prefiltered/dewatered) wvo into your vehicles (VO) fuel tank.  It is designed to be simple to fabricate with (mostly) common tools and takes up only 3'x3' of floorspace. If you are a good scrounger it should cost less than $100 to make..if not it can cost as much as $200.

Dana,

I'm looking for a source for really thin nuts for mounting your hotrod pickup in my gas tank.  I thought maybe conduit nuts would work, but the ones I have access to are not flat so as to make a nice seat for the neoprene washer.  The thinnest I could find on mcmaster for a flat pipe lock nut was .34" which is to thick for the 5/8" if thread I've got to work with on the 1"mpt to sweat joint fitting I'm using.

thanks,
dave

Conduit nuts work but you need to use a flat "machine" washer under it to provide a flat seat. These can usually be found in the specialy washers section of hardware stores. If you can't find them I can mail you a couple. Email me if you want that option.
