Hangs Out With Dogs
The OM617 is a different animal. IDI with a preignition prechamber. PLease explain the "glowing ball" a little?
propane can be just more fuel, but it's easier to ignite and provides a good spark, then reducing an eventual amount of unburnt fuel...Glowplugs are only on before starting. Propane doesn't help anything, its just more fuel. Turning up the pump will have the same effect without the risk of blowing up the engine.
wrong again. gotta have compression and heat to ignite the diesel. and every time I blow a cloud of black smoke out of my truck its unburned fuel. definately not a complete burn.Incorrect. Heat alone ignites the diesel and the amount burned remains wholly unchanged.
No. No engine runs well on WVO. The injection pump is merely more tolerant of garbage being run through it.I guess IDI is why these engines run so well on WVO and alternative fuels?
Wong again. Black smoke is due to excessive fuel injected into the engine when there is a lack of oxygen. No amount of propane injected into your engine under those conditions will increase the amount of diesel burned even in the slightest, in fact injecting propane in that situation would INCREASE smoke by reducing the air:fuel ratio even further!gotta have compression and heat to ignite the diesel. and every time I blow a cloud of black smoke out of my truck its unburned fuel. definately not a complete burn.
No. The bulb doesn't light the diesel, it atomizes it.Hi, jubel is referring to the "hot bulb" in the prechamber in the IDI heads on the OM617.
