For Sale: 1985 Chevrolet S10
Alternative Fuel / Woodgas
1985 S10 with 350CI engine, 700R4 transmission, Wayne Keith Gasifier.
This truck has been built as the next step forward in woodgas performance. Light overall weight and a high flow woodgas system were a priority during the build. This is the first woodgas truck to be specifically designed for use with a supercharged engine.
If performance & mileage is what you are looking for, this is the truck for you!!
Chassis from cab back has been replaced with a custom tube chassis specifically designed to accept a Wayne Keith gasifier. All the build pictures are under New WK Gasser project thread in the premium section of Drive on Wood.
CHASSIS - features 4 link suspension w/ ¾ x ¾ rod ends, adjustable height panhard bar, QA1 double adjustable suspension shocks & adjustable coil over springs. Lower shock mounts are fully adjustable for any desired ride height. 4 wheel alignment is very easy as each 4 link bar is equipped with right & left hand rod ends for length adjustment. . The panhard bar is also equipped with right & left rod ends for easy adjustment. Machined tube holes thru cross members for exhaust.
GASIFIER - has been built to exact specs as shown on Drive on Wood hand book & video with all new materials. The fire tube is the larger of the two designs -- same dimensions as the gasifier on Wayne Keith's V10 Dodge. Extreme design measures taken to sink the gasifier low enough in the chassis to be below the S10 roof. The chassis has also been designed to mount the gasifier far enough to the center of the truck as not to protrude past the door. Full weight of gasifier sits on platform & held in position by a bolt on strap with machined mounts welded to chassis (outer housing is not pierced anywhere for mounting)
HOPPER -- features 16 external, removable cooler tubes, 16 hold down springs and flanged & bolted top cover mount (absolutely no distortion in the top cover)
GRATE -- ¼ in laser cut stainless steel with star shaped relief holes. We installed one of these grates in Chris Saenz's Dakota last year --- he reports that it works very well.
CLEANOUT DOOR -- Outside mounted for ease of maintenance -- total access to the grate, machined hinges & latch are all adjustable to insure a perfect air tight seal.
HEAT EXCHANGER -- 8 inch bolted flange intake tube with close bolt pattern (to insure no leak connection) 5 inch flanged exit tube. Machined inlet bung for intake blowers.
COOLER -- 4 pass, 5 inch flanged intake tube -- 5 inch flanged exit tube. 65 feet of 2.00 x .070 aluminized tubing, laser cut headers, removable end tanks, machined Delrin mounts. This unit is a high flow condensed version of the standard cooling rack. The cooler has been specifically designed for high flow and easy maintenance.
CONDENSATE TANK -- 5 inch flanged intake, 4 inch flanged exit tube. Machined, 3 bolt mounting system. This tank also serves as lower mounting for the hay filter. Easy removal & installation for maintenance
HAY FILTER -- 4 inch flanged inlet, 4 inch flanged outlet. The weight of the filter housing sits on the bottom flange and on machined mounts welded to the chassis & tubular cross bracing to the heat exchanger & cooler tank.
MONORATOR TANK -- 2 bolt tab mounted to the chassis. Easily removed, bottom & side drain.
7 BLOWERS -- 2 intake blowers vertically mounted. 1 reverse, 4 suction blowers vertically mounted to the hay filter. Outer aluminum cover for wiring is easily removed for maintenance. Vertically mounted blowers will not allow condensate pooling inside blower housings. Drive on Wood builders are trending towards this method.
TRANSMISSION COOLER -- Mounted under rear chassis. Fittings on the transmission & cooler have been converted to JIC #6 and connected with Parker hydraulic hose with Parker push lock swivel ends.
WOODGAS INDUCTION SYSTEM -- Custom built gasoline, woodgas intake manifold. Throttle bodies have been machined for woodgas & air intake. All tubing in engine compartment & under truck is 3½ inch stainless steel.
MACK REAR END -- 680/1ratio, complete for use as a chunker. Note flanged pinion yoke --- makes for very easy mounting of sprocket, pulley or shaft.
LOTS OF FUEL -- thousands of pounds of chunked, bagged, dry wood. Hundreds of extra bags.
TOOLING & EXTRA PARTS -- All extra construction materials & tooling - jigs related to this project go with the sale of the truck.
OPTIONS -- This gasifier and cooler are also designed to operate a stationary generator or power plant.
Rear half of chassis has been designed to adapt to any small truck such as a Dakota, Ranger, S10 etc.
The truck is 90% complete. --- new, has never been fired --- high quality build.
Chris Saenz @ Drive on Wood has inspected this truck & can verify the quality of this build.
