Re: Valid email for GasResearch in Australia

Well, after waiting 10 days for Gas Research to get back to me, I have to assume that they are out of business or not interested in selling to me. I have found this to be fairly accurate across the board when dealing with LPG items. Once you mention that the part is not for a forklift or a propane f...

Re: Valid email for GasResearch in Australia

Is there any info out there on them besides what is on their website, which is fairly limited? My target engine is a 460 cubic inch stroker Big Block Buick V8 engine, decent cam, aluminum heads, headers, and aluminum intake of unknown origin as of yet going in a 1967 GMC 3/4 ton pickup truck. I am s...

Re: Valid email for GasResearch in Australia

Thanks Storm, I appreciate it.
I am looking for a higher performance LPG carburetor for my latest build. Last time I used an impco 425 and wasn't happy with the performance of the unit, seemed to choke the engine for air. Their carburetor setup seems better for high performance setups!

Valid email for GasResearch in Australia

Anyone have a valid email or a contact at GasResearch in Australia? Looking to pick their brains a bit on their carburetor setup. With the huge time difference between us and them it makes calling them a bit of a pain.

Thanks in advance

Re: 327 build - fine tuning

In my experiences with Vortec heads, they very rarely need more than 32 degrees of timing TOTAL to get the job done. If you are setting your initial timing at 10-12, you should not need more than 18-20 degrees of centrifigual advance to get a total of 28-32 total. Also, just my opinion, ditch the va...

I know that this forum is more geared towards automotive conversions, but coming across any reliable information when it comes to propane conversions on small engines is quite difficult, hopefully someone here can give me some insight/help in my situation here!!! What I am trying to accomplish is co...

I am in the process of getting an off highway/high performance efi system together. It will be able to run gasoline injectors or gaseous injectors, (peak and hold). I plan on using it to convert carbed engines. It doesn't control the ignition though, I was planning on using MSD digital stuff. I was...

And I do have to say that the Mazda on that website looks like an accident waiting for a place to happen. The 5 gallon propane cylinder cut into the floor put's his installation over the top on my "hack-o-meter" :)

I have thought of the same thing, and in my opinion, there is no reason that the megasquirt cannot control a LPG vapor injector instead of a gas EFI injector, a solenoid is a solenoid. As long as you can get the propane injector to open and close fast enough to control the fuel mixture, there should...

If you do decide to do the conversions be prepared, seems like everything that goes wrong after the conversion gets blamed on the propane systems. ( I also absolutely recommend that the fuel pump be disabled when the vehicle is on propane, because no matter how many times you tell someone to keep g...

Hi all, this is my first post for me, but I have been lurking for a while ;) I am in the process of gatheriing parts to do a dual fuel conversion in my 1990 Volvo 740 with a non turbo 2.3 (B230F). My main question is, can I modify a standard CA125M mixer to operate the same way as the CA125M-10 (ful...
