Default 6.4 Update???

So Clay how is your 6.4 doing? Do you have any smoke issues on oil @ idle like 6.0's do? Are your cold weather starts still smooth? How many miles have you logged? What is you pyro temp @ idle on oil?

I'm not using the WVO 6.4 at the moment. There were a few details that didn't get addressed durring conversion and JC was deployed to the big sndbox in the mid east so he didn't get time to finish. I am finishing it now. We designed a filter blank to go in the top fuel bowl which shares both fuels. the blank will be on a lathe turning in less than a week i think. So soon I will be able to test it. The issue was incomplete purge of that bowl with a paper filter inside and a lot of space to purge. The plug will correct both of these issues. Currently I blow through 1/2 gal. of Diesel when i purge and there still remains about a 30% concentration of WVO in this bowl. If this plug can cut it down to 1/4 gal. and 0% concentration, then we have accomplished much.
Furthermore, we will also look into a manifold to replace the bowl. Currently the way its converted and secondary fuel bowl was added and placed under the truck on the frame to take the place of diesel filtration from the top bowl. The top bowl was left in place because Jason found it too hard to remove. I think i can develope a way so future kits will allow the installer to remove the top bowl and relocate it below without adding the cost of another fuel bowl. This will also produce even less purge but it will also take away from the "stock" look of the truck once converted. We will pursue this and weigh the pros and cons.
So right now the KR is sitting without being driven much and has only diesel in the WVO tank.

I have a thread up about it where I am posting updates. Its been a long road developing this filter blank.

Mine will only haze at idle on WVO on certain tunes. I've found some tunes that it doesn't puff smoke when I take off now.

Default Update include V3 upgrade

I understand the 6.4 fuel system and was wondering if there will be an upgrade for V3 owners? Maybe different pressure valves and any add ons because of the the fuel cooler return. I don't have the full service manual yet to see if the electrical harness would be the same? Clay are you currently using a modified V3? I'm a newbie to the forum so I may have missed something as I read through these very late into the evening. I been vegin for 5 years now with Mercedes, tractors, 7.3's, and a 6.0 that was replaced with a 6.4. Last count was around 13 diesels we play and work with.

Yes I have a vegistrokes 6.4. Not with a V3 manifold but a crv1 manifold. The conversion was the first attemp and I am working to bring improvements to it before jay will start to sell them. It works dint now but has a long purge time which means it uses diesel faster than it really ha to. 1/2 gal of diesel with every purge.

Default update

What's the latest? I'm looking to join the grease community this summer. I am trying to decide what rig to buy. Should I buy a 2008 with the 6.4 or go with a <2007 with the 6.0? Will it still be many months before the V3 kit is available for the 6.4?

Thanks!

Just to clear some confusion... I have a question...

I know there was talk of the V3 being adapted to the 6.4, and I know Clay you're using the CRV1 (being the 6.4 is common rail)... which will the final design use? Is the "kit" going to be a CRV1 (or CRV2 of some sort)? And then maybe a "modification kit" to make a V3 work on a 6.4, or what's the scoop dudes?

I'll add some more confusion into the mix: it will be both and neither.

In fact.. between the manifold, Clay's solution, and the other stuff we're drumming up... I'm not sure if there are many components that will be shared between today's kit and the 6.4 kit.
