Tuning a propane forklift?

I have a 60s Yale 5k forklift. 6 cylinder Chrysler industrial flathead engine.

Was gasoline, but at some point many years ago, it was converted to propane.

It runs, but wont stay running at idle, have to keep it rev'd up a bit.
Seems way rich, like get black smoke, chugging and propane smell out the exhaust.

Im not too familiar with all the components. Is this something that is adjustable, or something beeds replacing perhaps?
