It might be better that they haven't charged/shipped this.

I don't see how his setup affects his inability to clean the rotor.

cleaning rotor

Postby sacveggieguy » Fri May 02, 2008 10:28 am

so far i have not needed to clean the rotor because theres nothing inside it. The rotor is the part that spins right? And the dirt is supposed to be left on the walls of the bell shaped housing right? Do you have to remove the jets from the rotor and clean that out I thought all the gunk sprayed out and left on the walls. I had to stop any progress on the CF assy because I am setting this up for my Dad before I do one 4 me thinking it would be easier for him to process wvo. And all this talk about water and and gravity and the bottom of the barrel I have adressed when I first built my system I dont have ups and downs coming from my barrel I draw from the bottom etc. The little bit of water i found in my barrel was just a tiny bit that i may have let get back in when i did not capture at shut down the last time i shut down after running for a couple of hours at that time i was looking 4 gunk. Next week i will go back to my Dads house and try putting in the flour and see if it picks it up. I may just be picking up clean oil or I have a CF thats not working properly. I have looked at all the issues and suggestions and made mods that may or may have not been needed all resulting in still no gunk. When i go to my Dads I will post photos of my rig and im pretty sure that thats not the problem. I really want to find the junk you gys are finding.

Okay, I just got mine. From the way it looks, the gunk should get deposited on the inside of the rotor. Checked that?

I think jordan may have the answer, you never opened the rotor up? You may need to read the instructions or see the pics and diagrams on any of the CF websites. The gunk doesn't spray out the jets, it stays in the rotor. Or see the dieselcraft thread for pics of the inside of the rotor.

You're going to have to remove the ring and the top of the housing. Then unscrew that nut on the inner thing (it's the rotor, which spins inside the housing), then lift that rotor up and out. The gunk gets caked on the inside of that.

gunk

Postby sacveggieguy » Wed May 07, 2008 12:51 am

The rotor is the part that spins right? And the gunk stays inside that? If so the only way to clean it would b to remove the jets and clean out the inside of the housing that spins(rotor) The filterfuge looks different than the dieselcraft to me.

Thanks Paul aka Sacveggieguy
