Heated pickup

Postby grimey » Fri Apr 03, 2009 9:55 pm

im using a gasoline tank from an old for pickup for my VO tank

the fuel pick up looks like it has a little filter or screen mesh thing on it.
does anyone know if i should remove that?

Im also trying to design a simple coolant heated fuel pickup. does anyone have any advice on how to do that? Id like to do it without cutting into the tank or having to weld anything since i dont have those abilities.


Also. i was wondering if anyone has heated VO tanks befor with the coolant lines. would there be enough power in the system to send coolant that far?
I will have my clean VO tank in the middle of the bus, and then a dirty VO tank at the back of the bus. id like to try and heat the dirty tank to help with filtering.

the bus is 20 feet. Its a 1993 ford E350 7.3L

any advice is appreciated
thanks in advance

i couldnt find the plans to make it. i assume they are to be purchased then.

from my understanding, the hotrod is basically a pipe closed at one end, with a send and return coolant line filling it. and then the fuel pickup runs along this?

If you look at the pictures and have the ability to make one, then you shouldn't need plans. The construction is simple and obvious.
