Re: Who is running propane

I thought about it. It seemed most propane carbs come in standard carb bolt patterns, might just need an adapter but you could probably find one that fits your 2 barrle manifold.

Re: Who is running propane

Never done it but have driven them at work. Biggest thing (to me) is that damn tank takes up a lot of room/space/area. Other thing is propane likes high compression ie doesn't preform well when an old worn out engine is used for the conversion.
It's been discussed here before, I would say try searching but this new search feature is driving me nuts (a short drive).
Good luck

Well I know that Texican that lurks around here occasionally, runs LPG in his CJ. Maybe he can chime in if he is around [img]images/graemlins/headspin.gif[/img]
