Default New V3 install

G-morning, new to the vegistroke community and in process of completing the install on my 03 F350 today. I started mid day yesterday and hope to finish today. I wanted to introduce myself in case I need some help. So far this is pretty straight forward. I have installed both check valves so far and will be gettin on the veg lines this morning. One question though, why add a second one way check valve on the diesel lines?

Welcome RT.

There should be 2 check valves (one for each head) on the engine to prevent WVO from flowing to the D2 tank, and one in the V3 module to prevent D2 from filling your WVO tank.

You should not have stacked check valves.

What kind of truck?

Pics of the diesel lines for BEFORE, DURING, AFTER shots on a friends E350 van last weekend.

Was planning to update the install manual with these new shots when I got a chance...

(Gift from God... the back fittings were RIGHT THERE behind the doghouse... but the front fittings were a curse from Satan).

I've got an 03 F350 7.3L. Looking at wingnuts photos, I have done the same with the OEM fitting on top of the new valve. Perhaps I have wrongfully assumed this OEM fitting was a check valve. Currently one valve from the kit is on the pass. rear and the other is on the drivers front right as per the manual. I guess the new question is... What is the fitting (OEM fitting) if not a check valve?

Good luck on your install!!! Take your time and take a break if you get fustrated (shoudn't happen).


You're in good hands here.

I'm off on a 200 mile road trip to pick up my son from School. All on SVO!!!

A diesel savings of 70 bucks!!

Something for you to look foward to.

It's not a check valve... it's shaped like one, but it's just an adapter fitting with a tiny screen mesh inside.

WOW!! Just noticed you're in Kauai!!! I lived in Kapaa for 8 years. I'll be visiting friends and Relatives in June. Where are you located?? Maybe I could stop by when I'm there!

Off to Hilo, Touch base when I get back.

This, of course, means you can no longer complain about having no greasing friends to join in with Culture awards.

He' s on another island, at the other side of the State, roughly 300 miles away and no bridge.

He'd just as well be in California!!!
