Admittedly this is a rather "Rube Goldberg" set-up, but the results are impressive:
18 foot round by 4 foot deep pool, start temperature (with solar cover that has blue on one side and silver on the other) was 71.2 degrees. After 8 hours (two separate 4 hour runs 24 hours apart) the temperature of the pool was 92.1 degrees. Outside ambient air temperatures were in the low 80's during the day and high 50's at night. Pool lost approximately 2.5 degrees of heat overnight. Now pool can be maintained at 85 degrees with a daily burn of heater for less than 1 hour run time. Cost of operation is about $4.00 an hour for the kerosene (at 2.80 a gallon) and electric to run second pump and heater. I am still doing a cost analysis as compared to a purchase of either a 9KW electric heater vs. a 150,000 BTU heat pump vs. a gas or oil fired heater and the various energy sources required to operate them.
EdAnswersounds like it workes great,if it workes use it.
Hmm, I bet your neighbors love the noise huh? Better get htis pattented everybody's gonna want one.

No, you do not have to remove the engine to replace a radiator hose.No, you do not have to remove the engine to replace a radiator hose.
Depending on model, the radiator cooling fan(s) will be replaced by disconnecting the power (an automotive connector) then physically unbolting it from the radiator. Newer vehicles with less room in the engine compartment might require pulling the radiator, fans and all and then disconnecting it. Pretty much the same thing.
Diesel and kerosene are quite close chemically. Kerosene has some heavier paraffins and would clog the injectors of a diesel engine.
Kerosene is fuel for a diesel engine. gas is fuel for spark engines.
Will be detrimental to your engine.
Radiator stores engine coolant for circulation throughout the engine The radiator is placed at the front of the engine and exposed to the atmosphere to keep coolant cool to maintain proper engine temperature
Actually, both are used. However, it is more common to pull air through the radiator towards the engine. This draws cooler outside air through the radiator. Pushing air from the engine towards the radiator means that you are pulling hot air from around the engine towards the radiator.
If the cap is not holding pressure or if it is damaged, the engine will overheat. The automotive cooling system must be pressurised, WHY?? its because when you pressurise the fluid, the boiling point will increase.
Air comes in a engine that ignites the kerosene which then makes trust.
The radiator cools the water which then goes to your engine to cool it off, as cool water enters your engine hot water from the engine enters your radiator

how can you tell if you need a radiator in a 99 cadillac northstar engine
On your 1997 Ford Thunderbird : The engine cooling radiator is at the front of the engine compartment . The radiator is connected to the engine by ( 2 ) larger diameter rubber hoses . ( 1 hose at the top of the radiator and 1 hose at the bottom of the radiator on the other end of the radiator ) If you have air conditioning , the air conditioning condensor will be in front of the radiator
Jet fuel is a type of kerosene. Essentially it is kerosene which has been highly purified and had a few additives added to prevent or mitigate water contamination.Kerosene will burn just fine in a jet engine, and jet A will burn just fine in a kerosene heater.
AnswerLook at the bottom or rear of radiatorThe drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator on the driver's side. There is a valve located on the engine side of the radiator.
2 radiator hoses / the top radiator hose comes from the engine thermostat / and the bottom radiator hose returns to the engine water pump
The radiator is at the front of the engine compartment . It connects to the engine with ( 2 ) large rubber hoses , 1 at the top of the radiator and 1 at the bottom of the radiator at the opposite end

No! Yes! Low performance spark ignition engines in boats and tractors commonly use kerosene as a fuel. Some need to be started on petrol then switched to kerosene.
Look for a radiator cap and add it there.Look for a radiator cap and add it there.
The radiator consists of cooling fins around tubing which the coolant flows through. A water pump circulates coolant from the radiator through the engine. A smaller radiator around the dashboard makes up the car's heater. An automotive cooling system has 6 basic components; the radiator, coolant/water, pressure cap, expansion tank, thermostat, and the water pump. When an engine is running, the water pump circulates the engine coolant inside the engine. As the engine heats up, the thermostat opens (usually at above 160 degrees), which allows the engine coolant to be pumped into the radiator, through the top radiator hose. The coolant flows through tubes inside the radiator, and is cooled by air passing over the car's grill. The cooled coolant exits the radiator and reenters the engine through the bottom radiator hose. The pressure cap holds the entire cooling system under pressure, which allows the coolant to reach higher temperatures without boiling. The expansion tank holds extra coolant for the system and allows for extra capacity when the coolant expands with the heat.
