Question for the propane guys

I put a got propane kit on my Toyota a while back and have a question. It seems that after I wheel the truck for a few hours it starts to run hot....can run for two or three hours at 165 degrees or so and then bam it will jump up to 210... A lot of times that is after a climb or tough spot. Could this be caused by the propane not being tuned right????

Could be yes. Do you know your initial and total timing? Could be as easy as that. Really though 210 isn't THAT hot. What kind of cooling do you have going on? Is it stock rad in stock location or something more exotic? It's the heat season so I'm just asking as it might not be the propane at all.

Sounds like My Yoda when it was on pump gas. a whole lot of RPM's in low range. 210* isn't to bad. I've seen mine all the way up to 230 after a hard rev for a few minutes. THat's with my 20R w56 stock dual cases.
Now with a chevy 4.3 using a Toyota v6 radiator on pane. I sit around 190-210 all day long. using a volvo electric fan.

Stock rad....new. Is stock location was having this problem in February and again in may after the new rad.... Not sure what the timing is set at right now. What is the best setting on a 20r on pane???

I think I set my last one around 12-15 initial. Maybe around 36ish total. Other than the temps does it run real good? Any stumbling or misses?
