Default New OBS Fitting

This fitting installs where the stock mechanical fuel pump was located on 1994 to 1997 Powerstrokes. Just got the photos from the machine shop. Will have one for test fit tomorrow. Now you can feed Veggie into the rear head ports and diesel to the front ports. Uses the stock Banjo bolt from the old fuel pump. This holds the spider fuel lines in perfect alignment for no stress on the Vibra Loc seals at the heads. No Turbo Removal required with this fitting!!!

Here is where the fitting goes. The original mechanical fuel pump bolt holes. It connects the stock banjo fuel pump bolt to the fitting.

It is only because I closed the shop that I have time to develop products like this. Between mock ups...misunderstandings on material and machine shop being busy this took about 6 months to get to this point. But those Stainless Steel Lines going to the back of the heads on your truck are larger that the Stock tubes in the photo. Thinking more today since I saw the photos I may use this fitting to feed diesel thru the stock size steel tubes and feed the veggie to the front of the heads with the larger SS Covered Hose on this.

I still like the SS Tubes on your truck better. But removing the Turbo on an OBS to install them is not an easy job the first time. That scares some away. That is why I had this made. Plus this will be a hit in the non veggie world for E Fuel Conversions on OBS Trucks.

Thanks OWEN. We learned with your help, proper check valve placement on the diesel side. And I do remember your patience with one of my SS lines blew off it's end on your way home. Was a manufacturing error in a batch of fittings.

It's customers like you that keep me going.

Dave

Cost, I will find out later today. First one has over $500 in it for 2 failed proto types. But now I have drawings that any machine shop can follow. I will bolt it on my truck for test fit this after noon.

Dave, I really think you should patent the parts and system if you can. Many OBS out there that would love to upgrade to this system. I know you're the kind of person to help all, but think about it.

I'd give you $500 toward this, but I lost it in Reno!

Seriously, I'd help financially if it's possible to Patent it.

I would not even know where to start. Jason Crawford had patent pending on the V3. He explained to me that the patent to him was to make sure somebody did not copy him and then sue Him claiming he copied them.

Even if I sold a thousand...I do not know if the patent would be worth it.

And if someone copied me...... I have no room in my life for lawyers or courts.

Now if I am wrong and it is easy and affordable I would love the advise.

Thanks,Dave

Not that easy, but the Provisional patent is the cheapest and is good for 12 months.

Here's a link for starters.

http://www.free-legal-document.com/patent-an-idea.html

If you decide not to, someone could theoretically patent this and you would by S.O.L.

Take the pics off for now!!!!!
