That a lot of heat...
Totally forgot it was yours.....lol
How long did that thing last?
That picture was taken when it was pulled out at 541 hours. It has been totally rebuilt from the frame up. New everything and updated. It's a much better machine now. I keep it as a backup. The diesel makes my van smell like a WWII submarine.
Is the exhaust the same?
Holy mackerel Andy
How much raw fuel dumped into the firebox before it ignited?
and did you run K1 kero ?
(you should, instead of diesel)
and 360K BTU??
Holy Overkill Batman
I'm no stranger to oil burners .
and know that 230K will sustain 250 @ close to 2 GPM continuous
Those are perfect for city dwellers like myself. I saw a news item that Ford and Volkswagen maybe getting together to bring the transporter back to North America under Ford's name.
I love the smell of diesel...
And hot tar on a summer day.
Can you control the heat generated out of the burner? No reason for it to burn so hot..
Ben needs to be a paid advertiser!
I love the smell of napalm in the morning
I love the smell of bacon frying in the morning.
Should I give Ben a call and ask him if he wants to pay to advertise? I’ll record the conversation and post it on here for you guys’ entertainment, lol
Ben might say a few cuss words to me
Sold the supply shop and has his own restoration biz now
We knew each other years ago.
Are you still in Cairns?
You can lower the output water temp, but that will only generally shorten the duration of each firing cycle, and not effect the firing btu's.
Those burners fire on one setting.......HIGH.
Half of my van roof used to smoke when I ran that thing hard for a while when I had it.
Worth it's fooking weight when doing commercial pressure washing though.
Then why in world is amtex designed that way if used as cc machine? That way to much heat inside the van.
Every where I see those is outside on a trailer or something.
Why so close to machine parts where it can be over heated, when every major brand hustle to keep machine coolest as possible?
That heater on amtex is needs to be moved to different spot...
Burner like that should be separate from the machine and without that ridiculous fooking restrictive exhaust.
How many old Diablo's with those burners are still out there?
No many without fried couplers.
Good to hear from you John, still in Cairns mate
