7.3 IDI - not enough veg flow

Postby dougcullen » Thu Aug 16, 2012 10:21 am

Hello,

The problem with my WVO install is that my red holley electric pump (installed back near my veg tank) isn't able to pull an adequate flow of veg. I'm using a hot stick in my veg tank from WVO designs. The veg just needs to be a little warm at that point right ? Its getting plenty of heat under the hood from my heated filter wrap and heated filter head and FPHE before being injected. Should i install a better heat exchanger to heat up the veg tank more ?

The rotary vane pump does not wore well with WO . Use a gearotor type pump to handle the more viscous WVO .
