Very cool! I'm liking the idea of propane more and more each day.

The propane set-up so far has worked flawlessly. I will need to add a oil pressure safety switch to cut the power to the ignition if the pickup should come out of the oil in the pan. Typically with a carb this wouldn't be an issue since the oil pickup will work on much steeper angles than a carb will, since propane doesn't care about angles I need to safeguard against potential engine damage.

There are some fine tuning items that need attending to, but nothing major.

Re-locate P/S reservoir closer to the pump
- this was causing some rather interesting moments on saturday, funny thing about full hydro - when the pump cavitates your wheels return to center on their own.

Add bigger P/S cooler
-the all in one cooler, filter, and resi is not quite up to the task of keeping the oil at a decent temp.

Tender Coils on springs

Remove mangled hood and broken windshield
- somewhere along the way home saturday the hood latch failed causing the hood to turn into an "s" and shattering the windshield.

New P/S reservoir, all pressure tested and ready for mounting and plumbing. It holds just under 2 quarts, has all the ports I need without piggy-backing anything, and the cap won't pop off anymore when I use the brakes.

Mufflers are already pretty beat up, I am looking at some Magnaflow round canister style to replace the ones that are on it. Just too cheap to spend money on something that works but isn't ideal.

It is painted, its that all natural self applying paint. Trying to stay as green as possible, propane and a paint job from mother nature her self. What more do you want?? Not a good enough reason?? Then how about this - couldn't paint it before since I was still doing welding and what not, by the time I got the welding done it was already rusty. I am too damn lazy right now to spend the time cleaning it for paint. Not to mention it it WAY too humid for me to be able to paint it with the set-up/options I currently have.

I'm starting out with a 79 bronco frame 429 4v c6 205 hp dana 44 for 9" and throwing a ex cab ranger body up on it with a exo cage. And planing on three linking and back halfing it something like yours.

You're starting with about the same parts I did. Sounds like you have a nice build planned, Its all about long nights and frustration till the finish.
