So for our 4bt's how would one tell if the pump seals need to be changed to be bio compatable? I think the reman date on mine is in 94 but I'm not 100% on that. I'll get my CPL off it tomorrow since it's too damn cold here.Remember when I said earlier that any modern diesel will run on biodiesel? Well, so will the old ones, but biodiesel eats the rubber in the pump and the rubber fuel lines. Diesels made after about 94 have viton rubber in their injection pumps and and fuel lines. So what is one to do. Well, you can replace the rubber seals in your IP with viton ones for a few $. Or pay a diesel injection shop to do it. You can also replace the rubber fuel lines with viton as well. Then drive happy.
I'm not 100% certain on 94+ being ok. I will be checking up with some more knowledgeable people and I will get back to you. I need to know this info for my own 4btaSo for our 4bt's how would one tell if the pump seals need to be changed to be bio compatable?

Any idea how involved it is to swap out the pump seals? Got a source for fuel line?
Good info. I'm glad this group moved to a forum format from the yahoo group. Makes searching and archiving much easier. :beer:'s for all!
:happyfinger:hey matt i hope you cut and paste that....
Guess your right, that isn't a conversion at all. It's just thinnner. It doesn't matter how thin you get it, it will still coke if it isn't hot.conversions like what? I'm confused what you mean
