i need one mechanically injected turbo diesel engine to learn and stock pile rollers and parts for that can make enough power to move a loaded 1 ton or medium duty truck
that costs less than a used 5.9 litter cummins engine $2k

also looking into a listeroid diesel genset ( for back up power and heat ) and a M35a2 duce and a half (but power output is too low and geared too slow for highway speeds and no power steering and no automatic transmission) compared to the 7.3 PS 450ft# ( 500ft# 00-03) and can make lots of power with intake / exhaust / boost ctrl & fooler with no tuner
international has a version of the cummins 5.9 liter im looking into also

I have a Listeroid (a Metro) 6/1 , but I have never really put it to work.

My solar power system is almost/pretty much "set it up and forget it" so the 6/1 is now for emergency use only.
I also have a Kubota-powered semi-truck APU for emergency power.

I have run a mix of 10% well filtered motor oil in my 4BT-3.9 and 6BT-5.9 diesels, and I don't recommend anyone go over 10% WMO with a direct injected diesel like those.

I really have tried to get used ATF from the trans rebuild shops, and none of them are interested in working a deal with me.

im not a fan of the idi and wmo... i ran the 7.3PS straight on new hydro oil and 15w-40 for 2 weeks with no issues ...
a buddy got a new fleet service truck and came over and dumped all his tanks ...
hydro/15w-40/waste... and filled up with his bulk oils from work...
have also ran the ford for 2 weeks on ( 80 wmo / 20 gasoline ) hard to start every other time (injectors are tired and glow plugs/block heater dont work)
im currently running a 50/50 mix wmo and diesel
looking for diesels known for running on wmo and turbo for power and economy and cleaner burn with less build up. but im running out of options under 2k
i found a company that sell turned up 300-td injection pumps for $1k to turn up the MB-om617 to over 200hp

im not wanting to run them on wmo for long just a year or 2 tell i can make my own centrifuges and sell them in kit form for around $100 online
i have over 500 gall of WMO stored and an 850 gall cap.

working on making a 110v heating system so i can thin the wmo to +200* b4 it enters the centrifuge and run about 1gall an hr through it in 15 gall batches while the finished oil is constantly recirculated through a 2nd $100 centrifuge

hopefully in 55gall batches soon so i can make my mix and pump it through a 10 , 2 micron filter into a 110 gall fuel transfer tank and fill it the rest of the way with diesel

brake drums do not have a lip to hold oil for filtering...
its just a drum with an open top it would just throw fluid every where with out filtering...
i am even considering making a torque converter centrifuge since it has a closed top i just have to spin it while mounted true to a motor or shaft and cut a hole in one side to make a bowl and chisel out the turbine wheels ...
i do not have a lathe and its 100 @ hr for machine shop work here and they charge 30min just to chuck something up in a lathe not to mention re-positioning something..
i have already made a tuna can centrifuge , i tested it with the weight of heavy gear oil ... but i dont have a way to heat the wmo to 200* at the moment to filter it yet...
i have been thinking of cutting it 50/50 with pump diesel and running it through .. but i eye balled the holes and its off a bit ..

i am currently gathering all the parts to make a WMO to diesel still ...
hopefully il be able to vaporize all the WMO and bubble off all the light gases and collect the much cleaner thinner distillates to save money on filtering at the moment...
then ill target certain temp. ranges and collect
petcoke / tar
