Wont idle under load?

i have a 4.3l vortec engine that i just switched over to propane and having some problems getting it to idle. Finally got the engine to idle around 1200-1500 rpm's but when i shift out of park or neutral and put a load on the engine the rpm's drop down to 500 rpm's and the engine dies. I have turned the idle up to about 2000 rpm's and still have the same problem under load, but it doesnt die on me. any thoughts?
