Reclaiming water contaminated oil

Having drained the majority of the gearbox oil from the Leyland, along with the water which had infiltrated somehow, I decided to attempt to remove the water from the oil. Using a camping gas stove, until I ran out of gas, and then a vice and a blowtorch!

 

I had success removing the water from the oil but I can’t decide whether or not the oil I am left with is going to be suitable for re-use…

  1. I tend not to leave many remarks, however I browsed a
    few of the comments here Reclaiming water contaminated oil | One Wheel in the Furrow.
    I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it appear like a few of these responses appear like they are written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I’d
    like to keep up with you. Would you list of the complete
    urls of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter
    feed, or linkedin profile?
