Propane Question ??

I have a Toyota (1st series) 3.9 6 cyl. Land Cruiser motor on propane now , not sure of the brand of system I have , and plan to change the motor to a 350 Chevolet . What will I need to do to get the 350 to run on this system ? Thanks for any help . Frank

As long as you have a model E regulator you are good there you just need a 425 or preferrebly a 450 mixer and 4 barrel base plate

lets start with pics of what you have now.
there are a lot of systems out there
the recommendations will probably end up the same (425 and a model E from gotpropane) but you never know

Leave the 4 barrel intake, if it's the 4150 style (holley bolt pattern), get a holley 4barrel base plate. Bolt the mixer to the base plate, then bolt the base plate to the intake.

Here is a complete kit except for the base plate, from Nash fuels, we buy all of our propane parts from him. Give him a call, he's very helpful.

yea call Nash fuel. you're gonna need an impco 425 or a OHG450 mixer. probably a holly 4 barrel throttle plate. the rest of the system should be good. Nash fuel has both and will be able to tell you what you'll need. Quick shipping too and very knowledgeable.
