I vaguely remembered my dad telling me about the old Cat diesels using a "stacked washer" type fuel filter that could be cleaned and returned to service. I looked in my old diesel 50 book and there they were. I am planning to run heated Waste Veg Oil in a D2 5U engine. WVO as a reputation for softening and clogging the filters of organic material. I believe I can make a filter plate to adapt a metalic filter (book calls it a strainer) to the D2. Can these filters be found anywhere? Did they work? Should I really be pondering this at all?
I have stacked filters on pony motors and larger ones on Herculese JXDs. I liked them just fine on gasoline. I would like to hear your learned opinions. Thanx,
