Has any one messed around with 71 series Jimmy's. If someone has could you please tell me how the injectors fare with WVO.

I am planning on running wvo in a 71 series Detroit in the future. I am a heavy duty diesel engine machinist and have been rebuilding Detroit's for years. I have talked with several injection specialist friends of mine and they say it will be fine. Detroit's can run on almost anything that you pour in the tank as long as it flammable. thats why the military keeps using them. They thought that it may be unnecessary to switch back and forth to diesel or heat the wvo. I will indefinitely be using a two tank heated system thou. If I ever get that far, I am working on my chevy now.
1995 Chevy K1500 6.5 TD not on WVO yet but soon.
