Question Propane vs Carb

I was talking with my grandfather who was in the airforce for 20 years or so, and I told him that I was going to run propane on this ford build. I probably still will but he threw out an option that i have never heard of before. He said to adapt an airplane carb on there because they run on all kinds of angles. I dont know that a Cesna will run upside down but didnt the carb'd planes back in like WWII or WWI fly at crazy angles? Just an idea but i will probably just end up on propane.

Where in the hell would you get a airplane carb? I bet you Propane is a lot cheaper but I want to see that carb set up!!!

I'm sure the aircraft carb will work if you can get it to fit but what will it cost?

kabob just gettin started
airplanes dont have accelerator pumps which kind of sucks for a motor that needs quick throttle response..... I ran a 44mm minkuini (sp) on my sami and it worked but it would bog down unless you feathered the throttle ontil it picked up the rpms then it would scream.
