Re: Retirement sale

I placed a few things on my website with more to come when these meet some type of disposition. A lot of the carburetion items were not usable due to weather and storage problems (serious flood several years ago) but whatever is suitable, I will add at a later date. Note that I will consider a reaso...

Re: Retirement sale

Retirement has several meanings, but in mine, it was finally quitting my day-job, the one that has helped pay the bills for almost 46 years. My wife and I have our regular home and our ranch, about 30 miles away, and both require almost daily upkeep. When you have a ranch, that also means something ...

Retirement sale

I am now fully retired from the alternative fuel arena. I will be selling all of my remaining inventory of hard parts, electronics, fuel injection, hardware, etc. These items will be sold in packages, meaning, all of the electronics in one package, all the small engine electronic fuel injection kits...

Re: air valve flow ratings hand printed

Jono, look in the Diagnostic Guide, somewhere around page 53 for some info on the Impco air-valves. From what I've been told, in recent production runs from around 2017 on, the valves were computer coded and may not have the hand printed values.

Re: New LPG books available

I just checked and the link is indeed gone. The Propane Council, the organization that hired me to develop the training manuals, has since contracted with the National Alternative Fuel Training Council, an entity of West Virginia University, to be their education provider. From what I can piece toge...

Re: Camshaft for sbc on propane

Now, THAT is what I call a really decent discussion! ! ! ! Lets assume for a second that your current camshaft may indeed be worn out (not that uncommon on older small block Chevy's). As I state in my book and from years of work on engines, I prefer a little more lift rather than duration, to increa...

Re: Techno car efs400

I have the Technocarb set up tool and scanner which I will sell. I'll also toss in an additional mini-scanner that has an LED that has burned out. Both for $125.00 USD and I'll include shipping here in the US. Add the appropriate shipping for non-US destinations. When I got these scanners, they were...

Re: ppi aluminum tank

I bought one (a segmented welded tank like this one) several years ago for a research project. It was very dirty inside from welding slag and what appeared to be aluminized dust. It took numerous tries to dislodge the debris, vibrating, shot blasting, pressure washing, etc. However, I dont recall if...

Re: freshie impco rich on decel ???

You mentioned you had the sensor mounted at the tailpipe. It needs to be as close to the engine as possible to prevent fresh air reversion. Engines exhaust pulses in normal operation, especially on decel, and raw air dilutes the mixture around the sensor. Normal cruise mixture of around 15:1 is grea...

Central Texas flood survivors

A few parts are usable, here is a brief listing. MUCH more to come. I have two vaporizer temperature controller kits, originally manufactured by MSD-Autotronics. It contains a thermal sensor, vacuum solenoid, and a vacuum operated water valve which plumbs into the vaporizer return hose. One kit is n...

Re: Sad to see it go!

The raw aluminum and zinc castings on the mixer and vaporizer bodies oxidizes fast. If I had a walnut shell tumbler I MIGHT be able to salvage some of them but thats more work than I have time for with little in return.

Re: Sad to see it go!

I'm going back over to the storeroom tomorrow and triage what I have left. I'll box up what is obviously good and saleable, separate the questionable items, and trash anything that was wet. If anything is worth using, I will post in a couple of weeks. As for any OHG mixers, its been a LONG time sinc...

Sad to see it go!

As some of you know, we live in Central Texas, where all the recent heavy rains and flooding have taken place. We were relatively unaffected by the floods, but the rain was another story. My store room was flooded and many items I have from surplus and acquisition over my career were severely water ...

Re: Al-gas 60 mixer ,, c-250a reg.

Oh, geez, old memories in from the fog. The mixer uses positive pressure from the vaporizer regulator in this version. For some reason, Algas liked to use light positive pressure, I forget the actual number but its in the low inches of water column pressure. Also, the regulator has had a history of ...
