I think you should be able to just add the PDF int the post the same way you do a picture, size is an issue though I tried adding one and got this message

"Your file is too large. The maximum attachment size allowed is 3000 KB."

* found a smaller PDF - should be attached

Yep that worked

im just about to fit my fuel tank up again, my van is dual fuel & my lpg tank is on the wall behind the drivers seat, if you were me, would you ditch the fuel tank, have the gas tank refitted under? Can you get a tank to fit where the fuel tank goes? I have the "next generation" type holley lookin' mixer...
Then i would just have to have the head modified for just gas?...cheers!


In my previous post I said I would run a scuba and doughnut, the scuba tanks are in the late model ford gas cars they are shallower than the normal tanks and would be ideal for where the petrol tank is.

You could mount your original tank where the spare wheel is to get the tank out of the cab, or for easier fitting use the doughnut ones, they are round (DOH like a doughnut :) ) and fit easily into the existing spare wheel space.

Often engines run on gas burn valves because they lean out at higher revs, possible because of the sub optimal (dual fuel) tuning or the converter not being sized correctly for the amount of gas flow required.

In your current situation I would get your distributor re curved for gas, time it for gas and run it as straight gas. All the while looking on ebay for the scuba and doughnut tanks and a converter for a 350 chev, (not sure what cubic feet per minute).

The straight gas/timed correctly setup could dramatically reduce the risk leaning out and burning valves so you could run it as is till such time it does stuff up and then rebuild it with the stelite valve seats.

If it anint broke don't fix it :)

I've had several vehicles on Gas, all were dual fuel, which is a compromise between the two, they both have different optimal timing, cam and compression ratio. Personally if  was to do it again I would go straight gas, with cam, head work and timing optimised for gas.

Gas is found all over the place now, not like in the past, so a scuba tank were the fuel tang is and a doughnut one in the spare wheel position would give yo plenty of range and capacity.

Gas Research have a very good reputation for performance vehicles, but the beddy doesn't need that high end sort of stuff, you could scrounge all you need from ebay the main thing is to ensure the converter (liquid LPG to gas) flows more than enough gas for your engine. use a throttle body of a later commode and a good mixer, as others have said have a look at Wendy's and trawl the net for more info.

Talk to a gas fitter, Fit all the components, and get the gas fitter to plumb it all up.

is the 4 speed ozzie a good option?

Yes  it's a good cheap option, not as good 5 speed with over drive, but none of that matters until you change the diff ration, thats your biggest issue.

So sorry to hear that Warren, It's such a hard thing to see their pain and not be able to take it away for them, all the best mate....Thanks again folks.

Thanks Dano, yes thats the hardest thing, not being able to help, I took the time to do a pile of bucket list stuff with my dad while he was still able, now he's pretty well house bound.

He's lasted a lot longer than was thought, so just enjoying what time we have left.
