where to buy a drycell ?
I have a 1974 dumptruck with a 477 superduty gas engine. 253 hp @ 3400 rpm, 415 fp @2000 rpm. I never take it over 3000 rpm, because they are known for throwing rods at high rpm. where would be a good place to buy a dry cell, and what size unit do I need? truck gets 3 mpg pulling my backhoe. lots of steep hills. looking for better mileage, or better power with same mileage.

You're going to need a lot of HHO. Doubt there are any cells for sale as big as you need. You might look into buying 4 cells and running them in parallel or series depending on whether you have 12 or 24 volts. What is the cubic inch displacement?

You're going to need about 5 lpm HHO. That's a tall order and the drag on the engine from the alternator producing 50 or 60 amps may outweigh any gains you would hope to achieve with HHO.

I have a 31 plate dry cell I could let you have for $300 plus shipping.Puts out a liter for every 12 amps,runs up to 60.Also have an enclosure,flambeau six quart tanks, bubblers etc so could build you a complete plug and play unit.e-mail me direct at savage328@comcast.net if interested and I'll send you pix.
