Re: Intro: Another "obsolete" engine going propane.

I like it when people keep old engines running with LPG, keep us posted with your progress.

Re: Which Holley throttle body should I use?

I can't comment on the size of the throttle body based on experience. I'd love to test different TBs on a 425 to see if different ones make the 425 flow less than advertised or not. I think you can assume a TB that fits a Holley 600 cfm carb will be suitable and not restrict flow.

Re: Which Holley throttle body should I use?

The best one to use is the mechanical secondary for the squarebore carb.
You can use a vacuum secondary but you will loose 2 barrels if you do because the secondaries won't open effectively.

Re: Help to identify the parts in this picture.

Absolutely brilliant mate, the pictures help show exactly what I am looking to find out. I'm going to try and get some of them for my Troopcarrier.
Thanks again, cheers.

Re: Help to identify the parts in this picture.

Thanks for that.

Are you able to find out the size of the internal orifice?

Re: Help to identify the parts in this picture.

Thanks BBM
I looked through the info I have and couldn't find them, maybe they aren't available over here. They are certainly available online through ebay seller (mainly Poland).
What size fittings does it take?

Re: Holley 600 Base Plate for Impco 425

You don't, or shouldn't, need to block any ports. But you do need to block the hole that is smack bang on the middle of the baseplate between the 4 throttle blades. A Holley baseplate gasket will seal everything else.

Re: Help to identify the parts in this picture.

Hi C3H8 I have tried contacting the site owner a couple of times with no success.To my knowledge the update that says he sold the car in 2016 is recent (last few months) and after reading the site numerous times over the years it was obvious as early as the early to mid 2000s it was updated very spo...

Help to identify the parts in this picture.

Here's a picture from http://www.propaneracing.com/photos.html that I'm interested in the fuel tank and associated parts of this race car. Is it possible to identify what the individual parts are apart from the tank? I see the tank, hose, pressure gauge/junction block, hose, filters, hoses to front ...

Re: Fuel level gauge at drivers end

Yes under the Australian and New Zealand Standard Australian cylinders are limited to 80% fill. New Zealand is apparently 85% due to much cooler climate but I'm not sure if they push it that far. My main car is only a 3.8 Ecotec so it's fuel requirements are no where near as much as your 5.9 litre. ...

Re: Fuel level gauge at drivers end

I don't mind the old LED gauges. The one in my car is made to fit into the dash so it looks relatively OEM. It is also fairly accurate and I know when the red LED comes on I've got about 50 kms before it runs out so I can fill up before that. I've taken it so far that the tank, which holds 70 litres...

Re: Impco accel Hesitation, poor idle when warm VY Commodore

A couple of things strike me with this. 1. Your O2 reading is not right full rich should be approx 900 not >1000. 2. Not wanting to idle and getting worse when warm are an indication of a vacuum leak. Backfires tend to blow holes (small and large alike) in the intake tubing. If you have replaced the...
