I thought I would put this video where everyone could view it. I have been talking to a lot of people about the DOW site and gasification after the Agros Woodgas Meetup Event.
With all the rain and flooding storms Mike and I drove through to Argos the gasifier sucked up alot of water and turned it into steam through the muffler preheater and then into the whole gasifier system. A new shut off valve will prevent this from happening again when driving long distances on dino fuel and not driving on wood.
A new preheater box will be constructed to replace the old one that develop a muffler leak inside of the box which caused the problem in the first place. This was built in 2012 over 30,760 miles. Not sure if mufflers were brand new or not. Pretty good life for the mufflers that were in a box of steel that could have condensation in it,
I would like to personally thank @Chris
, the builder of the Automixer, and @gasman
who with advising helped, and the other’s who helped me make my goal of having a truck that anyone could drive. Even if they have never driven a wood gasifier vehicle. I think there were 9 or 10 people at Argos that got to drive the 92 Dodge Dakota from the book. I feel this is a proud moment for everyone in Driveonwood.Com
membership. Thanks to all for the help, I couldn’t have done it with out you all. Even Wayne got to drive his old truck again.
With all the water that was throughout the gasifier system it ran quite well, I was happy with the performance of the truck. This is a testimony in It’s self of how GOOD of a design the WK Gasifier is and it just keeps getting better with everyone’s new builds and ideas that are added making it better.
While writing this I just remembered that I did not check my hay filter and gas lines to the front of the truck for water. Will check and report on what I find.
