    Fuel Heating System Idea

    One can add up to 10% premium gasoline in the winter to make cold starts easier.

    Fuel Heating System Idea

    To make biodiesel work in a cold climate I store B50 mix out in the cold and let the High-Melting-Point-Esters settle out and only pump from the top clear layer for winter fuel.

    Pre-heating timer pin layout vs wire colors

    Pre heating duration depends on the temperature sensed by the pre-heat temperature sensor located in the engine thermostat housing. Simply unplug the sensor at the Tstat housing and the pre-heat should come-on for the maximum 14 sec every time the key goes to start. That's how to test the...

    88 BJ74 pre-heat not working?

    If you disconnect the preheat temperature sensor on the thermostat housing [the one with two wires] the preheat should activate every time the engine is started. This is the easiest way to troubleshoot the preheat or get to to activate.
