  1. A lot of information. I'll start by removing the big plastic contraption, that I now know is the vent and look for contaminants such as sand. Thanks a million!
  2. That's a very interesting read. I had ask my supplier about the possibility of bio fuel contamination but he said he doesn't deal with bio fuel what so ever. But I didn't think to ask him about ethanol contamination from gasoline. I could see where that could easily happen somewhere down the line. I really appreciate that info. It concerns me because I have enough repair expense as is and if I can prevent failure in today's picky diesels, it'll be worth looking into. Not willing to brush it off and move on just yet. lol
  3. NSN INFORMATION 5430-00-585-2529 I pulled the NSN report when I purchased the tank but that's all I've got. I appreciate the help!
  4. Electrolysis was my first thought, but the fuel man didn't seem to think so. Need to find me a plastic suction tube and replace the steel stuff.
  5. That contraption on the lid may be an anode/electrode of some type. I know that single bolt on the lid is steel/iron and I had to use black steel pipe for the suction tube but I bought aluminum and stainless for everything else. I removed the gravity valve from the bottom and welded a plate over it but it still has the drain plug. I don't think I have much water in it. I use a water separator filter and I've never seen water in it. My suction tube is probably an inch or two off the bottom. The weird thing is it just started over the past few months. I went a good 2 1/2 years with no trouble.
  6. It has always sit right on the edge of an awning and only gets wet in a blowing rain. That green circle on the lid is a vent and I'm not for sure what the bigger contraption hanging down is. That seems to be where the mystery powder is born. All the brass parts have turned green, but I'm thinking that's normal.
  7. Also, I don't think this tank was ever used for fuel. I believe it was used to transport water.
  8. Not sure, maybe I can talk my neighbor into tasting it..lol The tank was clean when i got it, then I washed it out with a brush and water before I put it to use, no chemicals. I keep a lock on it too. My fuel man says he's never seen anything like it. I'm a little worried if a 10 micron filter will catch it.
  9. I've got a 550 gal military storage tank I use to store diesel. I have it filled about twice a month so it doesn't stay in there long. I've been using it for about the past 3 years. This year is started doing something a little weird at the lid where you raise to fill it. Its got a very fluffy powder like substance and it seems to have accelerated corrosion setting in. Any ideas?
  10. I do not have an anti-capillary jumper but you can bet I will soon! Thanks for that tip, I've never heard of such.
  11. No other fuses are blown that I'm aware of. Until I removed the connections and cleaned them at the ECU the fuse on the firewall would blow immediately. I cleaned up the connections today where it was toasted and it started, ran for maybe a minute and died with a blown ECU fuse. Pulled it apart, cleaned it again, replaced fuse and got it to run long enough to dump the bed then it started missing really bad and I just shut it down. I figured it was getting ready to blow another fuse so I was hoping to save enough of the ECU to get it loaded tomorrow.
  12. I went back out to the truck. I cleaned the connections the best I could. The harness connector and the pined connection at the ECU are both toast. Managed to get it running long enough to dump my load off. It kept blowing the fuse and when I would unhook the bottom connector on the ECU gas/pressure would escape. Going back in the morning with the lowboy truck and hopefully get it running long enough to load it up.
  13. Man that's horrible! Was it domestic or in the wild or car accident?
  14. It had leaks from the coolant tanks when I got it. I replaced those and the sensor etc. I'm thinking the coolant leaked down on it and caused the corrosion and short, especially since all the trouble is at the bottom. I'll take a closer look tomorrow and check the pins out. The pin connector/harness looked to be toast.
