What are the model years to look for with the v-10's that are easily converted to wood gas?
I think 95 was the first year to offer the v10, but 96 starts the OBD2. I heard the earlier years of OBD2 were stupid enough to not get in the way, but I don't know when they might start complaining.
Hello Chris .
The 95 V-10 is the only one I have first hand experience with
Pulling my friends dead diesel over the mountain this morning .
Nice to see another reason why the big Dodge is your favorite truck. Merry Christmas. Doug D. from the land of frost. (60 degrees F on Thursday)
Good morning Mr. D
Favorite truck for work but it can't compete with the dakota on the open road .
Hope you and yours have the best Christmas ever
That is a really nice engine Wayne. I poked around the site and looked at the turbine engine. Looks like that would be an engine to build around a gasifier for an electric hybrid setup. Small turbine to turn a genhead and provide heat to help the wood gas process. Fun exercise to think about.
Fore those with short arms or a deep gasifier
You can't patent that.......................
Hey Doug .
I take it that you have done some research on extensions
It seems winter has hit Alabama , it is cold out but warm in the cab of this old truck .
Yes Wayne. I have been at the top of an extension ladder, have the bottom slip away and crashed through the house window with shards of glass sticking out of my head. Like a hedgehog. How is your bottom hopper tube not clogging in your Michigan weather?
Hey Wayne, what are you using for video camera these days? You always used to use those vertical flip cameras but your shadow before getting in the truck showed something more horizontal.
I haven't had any problem yet and maybe this Michigan weather will not last but a day or so .
I saw ice in a mud hole this morning !!!
Hello Mr. D
I have been using it for about 10 years for pics but mainly using the flip for videos until the flip began to act up with me a few months back . .
Good after noon MR Wayne just checking data, how many burps a week wood you think maybe you get out of old red, and does it upset the top drumb seal too make it leak after a burp,I see no smoke from idleing,Looks great.THANKS SWEM.
I have never counted but I would guess maybe a burp every 25-30 start ups. Most of the time they are very light and hardly hear them.
I can't remember losing a seal from a burp.
Usually when I do have a burp it is as the gasifier is warming up .
I worked the V-10 this morning ,
Camera picks up a lot of noise that I never noticed while driving .
Also the wife and I put about 50 miles on the dakota this afternoon visiting sick folks
The trucks are running well enough that a lemon is needed
Before I had a drivers license, I would go on free Sunday drives. I see that's still possible. Hey Wayne, do you see the cooling rail temp rising with that kind of upgrade, or not that much.
I have seen no change in the temps.
Hi Wayne,Thanks for the ride.Pepe
Hello WayneYour ground there looks like what I get into all time, lots of log roads to travel in the timber business.
