    Yep, they are silver Vinyl like the one in the above picture. in the picture they are still adhered to the white backing.

    Clean the paintwork, peel the white backing, then attach Vinyl sticker. no 'background' or 'border' just the silver lettering.

    pump questions

    setsuna
    have you received your pump yet, is it pretty?

    am i correct in reading that you disabled your mechanical lift fuel pump and replaced it with a facet pump?

    everyone else

    so would i be stuffing the diaphragm in the mechanic lift pump if i don't release the pressure going into the back of the closed 3 way valve whilst in Veggie mode?
    most info i can get is from RAVE, mechanical lift pump driven by the camshaft, pressure 42-55 KPa(6.09-7.975 psi) @1800rpm.

    anyone got any recommendations/stories on Walbro FRB-5 Industrial Fuel Pump, 12v, 8-11 psi, 2.3 amps? my concern is the 70 degrees C upper limit

    Does the CAV filter have a PSI drop across it? therefore i am asking would i need a pump greater than 7-8 psi to compensate for a drop across the CAV filter?

    No you wouldn't once the get a head of pressure on The outlet they stop and hold in position naturally, the real problems come whe. They operate against a vacuum on the suction side or they get pressure on them on the suction side.

    .Yes the cav filters have a pressure drop across them but untill they start to clog at the flow rates the tdi requires it's barely measurable with most simple gauges.

    thanx blknight
    good to know i dont have to buy extra valve to try and save the pump diaphragm. will save some room under the bonnet too and extra hassle.

    i guess i be able to tell ya in a year or 2.
    at A$34 delivered i thought i would give them a go.
    WVO SVO solenoid valve DC12 volt 1/2" NPT-in Pneumatic Parts from Industry & Business on Aliexpress.com
    update so far on these valves.
    not installed yet,it took a long time to receive them.
    In the advertisement they stated that he would supply info to help install.
    they didnt, so i am flying blind on the ports of the valve. this is new to me. i have contacted them more than 5 times but they will not supply the info promised. also wanted current draw.
    2 of the 3 ports have 'N' stamped on them, am i correct in thinking these would be the normally open when no power is present?
    how can i work out which port is the common(i dont know the name) port to the IP.
    does anyone know of a good site for the above info.
    just will help with planning wvo lines etc under the bonnet.
    or do i just try and run water through them and activate the solenoid

    fit a line to them and breath down it, then switch it over, it'll become clear soon enough.

    thanx again
    never thought of using my breath and blowing through it, me simple lol

    so whats your thoughts on using a facet pump for a veggie lift pump?
    should i go the 4-6 psi or the 7-10 psi. im leaning towards the 7-10psi because of the cav filter, heat exchanger and other restrictions.

    which facet pump did you use in a past post, and how is it going?

    the old school square ones.

    havent killed one yet. but I never use them to pump raw product, by which I mean stuff that hasnt been at least strained and primary filtered.
