Very interesting site

This site is for Ford diesels but has information about building a propane power system for all diesel engines. I hope to have this power making magic ready for the summer. A complete propane system can be purchased for about $2K from Bullydog. I'm still gathering and looking for some parts for my Allison conversion project. Frank

The site is... http://members.shaw.ca/k2pilot/

Re: Very interesting site

I've been considering this for my Gillig. Mostly for pulling grades at elevation (I'm in NV, so valleys are 4000')- it does O.K on relatively flat terrain. It has a 3208 CAT, and I've been told some have pre-combustion chambers i.e. indirect injection. Seems that I saw that propane injection doesn't work well with this type of diesel? So I'm still in the research mode.

Here's another link:

Good luck, and keep us posted. I'll do the same.....prob not any work 'til next spring though.
