Thanks for the ride in the wood gas valvo- Do that gasifier have a good working monerator hopper ? How is the mazda truck rolling.I am working on a monerator hopper spacer flange last night, CONGRADULATIONS, 20.000 miles on wood gas valvo.I know i spelled that wrong.though.
Hi Kevin. Yes, both my wg vehicles have monorator hoppers.
The Mazda is running sweat, but not very powerful. I use it mostly for puttering around close to home. It needs some maintence. It probably has a small crossover air leak and the air inlet heat-exchanger paths are taring and tightening up, with high vacuum readings as a result. As soon as the weather allows I’ll get to it.
What Wayne said. Nothing but everyday DOW.
Maintence needs accumulating and waiting for warmer weather.
I got fed up with the flimsy/messy plastic hopper juice tanks.
Today I welded a new 3 gallon tank with a 1 gallon tar reserve capacity.
How do you get the tar out, does it get so hot you can drop it when you stop?
No shiny tank?
Jan, tar will sink to the bottom of the container and only water will be drained through the little 3/4" valve with the blue handle. With a full gallon below the valve I expect to reduce messing with tar to only a few times a year. The bottom drain in the last pic is for draining tar only. A warm summer’s day or shortly after longer trip, when the trunk is still warm and cozy, will be a suitable opportunity for that particular activity
@Johan, for the most part I keep the trunk lid shut and noone will ever see this tank. I saved the shiny one for the Mazda where it will sit out in the open for everyone to enjoy
