Mercedes-Benz 1985 300 TD single tank Elsbett conversion done by
Fryer Trucks'. Unfortunately I didn't take the best picture, the one
of the completely empty trunk! No smelly hot tank of wvo in this nice
Picture showing the two fuel filters and the spare filter cutoff
valve on the left. The heat exchanger is on the right. It is lower
and has 14 ribs/plates. Above right is the engine coolant T into the
cabin heater line. Also visible are the new glow plugs and the rebuilt
and modified injectors.
Another view of the new fuel filter with the electric band
heater. Note the aircraft style nuts holding the new fuel filter to
the bracket. The black heat exchanger bracket can be seen behind it.
It connects to a bolt holding the upper shock mount.
A close up of the wiring showing the 3 relays wired to the stock
glow plug relay.
The shiny aluminum cylinder is the AC powered coolant heater , a
1500 Watt Zerostart. It's plumbed into the cabin heat line and engine
coolant inlet to the water pump.
