Not exactly as shown in photo, these are now supplied with standard male spade connectors rather than the "Deutsch" connectors. VALVE PORTS ARE NUMBERED. 1 is for diesel (valve not powered), 2 is for common (to or from engine) and 3 is for veg (valve powered). Wire and female connectors not included, use 16 gauge automotive wire. Free-Flow rate using gravity fed 250 ml funnel of Canola oil @ approx. 50 degrees Celsius: 375ml per minute (approx 6 US Gallons per Hour). Note that fuel systems are *not* gravity fed, they are either under vacuum or pressure, so real-world flow rates will be considerably higher. Also note that vegoil fuel is normally heated to over 70C, versus the 50C used for the above test results, and that the flow rate at 70C will be somewhat higher, as well.
Works for most cars, pickups, tractors, generators, boats, etc. . Genuine Hydraforce valves with Viton seals. Some (highway tractor size) trucks might require larger valves - contact us for pricing. Specifications: 3 port (3/2 way), normally closed. Ports: Threaded for -6 ORB fittings, valves ship with ORB to 3/8" hose barb fittings which are clockable - that is, they can be rotated 360 degrees for optimum hose routing. Attachment: Use machine bolts through mounting slots into something rigid. Mounting position: can be mounted in any position. Compatibility: diesel, new SVO, WVO, biodiesel, blends. Wiring - provided with two male spade terminals, so not exactly as pictured. Power Draw" Approx. 2A @ 12V. We can also supply these valves with 24V coils as special order on request. Body: Aluminum. With minor modifications (mill or drill the mounting holes to make them a bit larger), valves can be mounted to a VM2 filter base, using our optional spacer plates and also, multiple valves can be mounted this way, either on separate sides of the VM2 filter, or stacked and using longer bolts.
Advantage: Neat, compact mounting, valves warmed by the coolant in the base of the VM2.
