I will show pictures as the conversion progresses, but here are some general comments related to the posts:

There will be 2 separate fuel systems for diesel & WVO.
The WVO will be heated via coolant and 12V glow plugs (for auxillary heat).

There will be a separate closed loop coolant system complete with a separate overflow tank.
The circulation pump will circulate the closed loop coolant through a FPHE in one direction with engine coolant going in the other direction.
The closed loop coolant will heat the WVO in the tank warm enough to keep it moving up through the heated sedimenter and filter.
Will show some pictures when I get this portion installed, but am not there yet.

A holly blue fuel pump will pump the WVO out of the tank and up to the engine compartment.

There will be 3 X 3-way solenoids:
for the engine feed WVO or diesel
for the return line WVO or diesel
for the engine lift pump which will pump diesel only - one port will send diesel to the engine via the engine feed 3-way and the other will send the diesel to the diesel return line.
In that way the lift pump will only be used for diesel.

Pendy is outstanding and I think the general consensus here is he in fact is among the best.

Glad to hear that. Maybe it will run better than new out the factory. 😄

Please share all you learned from pendy's diagnosis. is it with him now? sounds like it.

for the fuel to get into the timing housing, it would have to be the O ring on the IP driveshaft i would imagine. that's the only part going into the timing case. and for leaking fuel to make it to the belt, it would have to be squirting out under pressure pretty well, which would be a huge failure. A normal breech would probably just leak down the case wall and diligent inspections would view the fuel leak coming out of the wading plug hole.

Installed the relay panel for the 4 switches that control the WVO/Diesel selections.
Also installed the Glow Plug Controller Relay (large one in the picture).

Relay Panel is in.
Large one is the automatic glow plug controller.
The rest control the fuel solenoids, 12V WVO fuel pump, and 12V heaters.

Fitting WVO Fuel Tank

This weekend finally got a few hours to complete a trial install of the WVO fuel tank and the fitting went very well.
Bending tubing is always a challenge.
That's the freshly rebuilt engine for our daughters Jetta TDI in the back of the 110.

Thanks, Ed.
When you do a second conversion it's easy to improve the quality.
Each time you evaluate the setup and note lessons learned that you can improve on.
Will post results next time a few hours are available to spend on this new conversion.
