04 Chev Tahoe 4800 vortec
hello everyone,

I am trying to figure out where to connect my HOD tubes in my engine. I have purchased the Haynes manual but it does not show my engine vacuum lines. I need help locating the vacuum line to connect one of my hoses. I know where to connect the other one on the Air intake but not to the engine. Can someone please help me.

Hi Val.

Many of us believe there's no benefit to connecting to engine vacuum and you run the risk of a vacuum leak or worse, sucking your caustic electrolyte into your engine. IMO you should add it at your air cleaner.

Thank you for your input. I had just about decided to hook them both there as I could not find any other areas. Smile I am using the water4gas setup .

In your opinion........... should I make these generators with just one out hose? and use a manifold to connect them?

If you haven't made them yet, I'd search for water4gas. Most of the water4gas users here say you should get your money back.

With multiple cells, I'd Tee the lines together and feed them into a bubbler and into the air cleaner housing.

Well that is not exactly what I wanted to hear! Confused What exactly are they saying about it? Can you be a little more informative about it?

Good hho production is dependent on surface area. Cells made with stainless steel wire doesn't cut it. Search for water4gas for more details. This was just in the last 3 days ago or so.

Yes I have seen a electrolyzer made with SS threaded rod and discs. Here is a pic. It claims to be cooler and produce more HHO. I thought I would give this a try. I have found the ss in 316 to build it. Will this work out OK?

Here's some reading material on water4gas:

I think you can do much better. The plans for the Smacks cell are free and a much better design: http://www.smacksboosters.110mb.com

The dry cell is getting a lot of attention lately and is very efficient. That's probably the best route to go these days. Why build something that will just get replaced a few months later?

Ok I have seen this...... but the catalyst he uses is not baking soda..... so your basically telling me to make something very different. I am a bit new to this forgive me for being a bit shy of the other. On a different subject..... how do you know which plates produce the H and which produces O. I see some are separating these and not quite sure how they do that since the current is running thru the same water. Is the barrier between the H and O porous?
