it mounts on top of the existing carb
to run propane you cut the gas to the carb and start the propane, the carb acts as the throttle plate

How much are you looking to spend? I have a complete kit from gotpropane.com on my jeep right now. Running an amc 360. For the right price, i might remove everything. I am having to drive it on the road alot now and might consider switching back to gas. I LOVE the propane kit though.

(Would come with 4 new 43lb steel forklift tanks also)

Pm me if interested
