propane

Ok how do you run propane on a vortec? Got a vortec 4.3 that needs propane on the cheap, don't have the money for a new intake. Any ideas, needs to be done for the river.

Ebay search for carb intakes for vortec engines. They came on boat motors. Most under a $100.

This is how im putting CPI heads on my TBI 4.3 motor. Boat intake.

How about a dual fuel hat over the factory tb? That way I don't have to buy a intake.

you will need a distributor from an 85 truck v6 with vacuum advance, you can use any throttle plate for the mixer.

this is what i was speaking of in the other thread. 1 wire fire...well worth the $150+/- IMO

Find a old farm truck in a JY that runs(ran) on pane and rob everything from the pressure hose to the mixer. My last pane setup i was running for around $80 before tanks.For that matter a JY dizzy may could be had for $50...

If your willing to look you could be running for less than youll spend on 1 pane tank.

propane

Im not positive but it might be kinda hard to find a fuel hat that will go over the factory vortech throttle body? It really seems easier to order a harness for a few hundred dollars and spend an afternoon wiring it in and be done. No propane hose to run or tank to mount or none of that if all of your fuel stuff is already run and already mounted and done

If it's a throttle body then unbolt it. Get a cheap Holley carb that has the base plate throttle body. Unbolt all that carb stuff and just use the base plate. Bolt a 200m carb to it with an adapter you can make yourself. Keep the distributor with the computer. Should work I think. Someone correct me if I'm wrong!!

Vortech 4.3's have the spider style intake and injector set up. Hed need to pull both upper and lower manifoldsand do a carbed intake set up. The throttle body only moves air no fuel
