Re: Randomly losing power @ WOT

When I asked Franz about using dual 425s and Dual Es he told me my single electric block off would flow plenty. Idk I should go back and see if I can find that email. Welding a new bung into a pressure vessel requires a you have a "R" stamp to meet ASME requirements in this country and I am betting ...

Re: 300a on my 84 k10

This engine is a starter killer and I finally got pissed over Christmas and tore of the inspection cover and transmission support rods and set the clearance on a brand new starter. While under it I notice is had a massive oil leak. I started with the valve covers but after pulling them is was obviou...

Re: 300a on my 84 k10

So, I have seen the suggestion that when you have a Quadrajet that the secondary door spring adjustment may need to be a bit lighter than it would need to be when the carb is on gasoline. Do you guys see a similar effect with a holley vac secondary? I wonder if I should go to a yellow or similarly l...

Re: 300a on my 84 k10

ok, I will just transfer it out of the 1 & 20 I have when I get it swapped on. Other than a electric block off that was doing odd things limiting flow and not opening despite "feeling" it open, the truck is running on lpg and doing fine. It does feel a bit soft up top but goes down the road fine. I ...

Re: 300a on my 84 k10

So I it running with a 1 & 20 off a old forklift bottle so I can go fill my in bed tank. I did buy a 50 & 70 off of Ebay and was initially sent a Feed Back 1 & 20 instead. I complained and was sent a 50 & 70 that is also a feed back but I had my local propane dist order the right fuel valve. This on...

Re: 300a on my 84 k10

I fully understand the concern heater blockage could cause reduced flow though the vaporizer. I will be sure to plumb it on the inlet side and see if I can find a "H" to assure flow. I found my second model E had a orange spring so that should be good. I soaked the E I am rebuilding over night in a ...

Re: 300a on my 84 k10

I was thinking about what you said about the heater line. I wanted to put the vaporizer in the return to try and prevent over heating the propane, not so much a concern about heater output.

Re: 300a on my 84 k10

I have a 20 and a 50 is on the way in the mail. Putting it in the supply makes perfect sense.
I live in southeast Nebraska.

I was given some more lpg stuff the other including a 119 gallon tank, 2 Es, 425 and a 300A. Since my new job has me driving 90 miles round trip and in an attempt to slow the rust...

Re: Using dual 425s feed question

Well I have all my parts collected and I need a few tips. Should I attach my Es close or directly to the 425s? I noticed on my single if I roll out of the throttle then back in my truck will cut out now but the hose is 2' long. When I get back into it, it runs great. Thinking that the hose length is...

Nothing too crazy, stock gen vi short block, mercury marine cam 224 duration 450 lift 115 lobe sep, 781 oval port heads. I know it wi...

Re: BBC LPG Turbo

Just one 425 and one E. It is all done at a very low rpm. I read your post and once I get the EGT deal figured out I think i will be looking to see if a second E wouldn't make my fuel more steady. We could get it rich enough by screwing in the mixture screw but it would over richen the bottomend. I ...
