Was the diesel in fuel converter models part of the fuel system also? ...or were they separate systems?

Circulated through the main fuel tank, they were a three stage converter compared to a single stage oil converter.

Hi, Haus.
I never had the 'pleasure' of operating a fuel torque converter but I have been told that it was not a good diea to lean on the fuel tank when operating in hot weather, especially as the fuel level got a little lower - -- - if you get my drift.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Fuel Converter - maybe Caterpillar thought that might be a good COLD-WEATHER machine - prevent the diesel fuel from jelling in the tank.

Hi, Cat Twenty Five.
From around 10 - 12,000 miles away, I suspect that I might have a clue about the current whereabouts of that Clark Gable fifteen.- still in running condition.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Hi, Folks.
I just found a collection of old photos in a folder on my laptop labelled, CSU-Chico-edu, so that is where the credit probably needs to go.



More to come.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.
