It seems i may have a line on a 302, built for propane. It comes with the tank ans mixer n' all that. I figure that outta wake up the toyota a bit! Can anyone forsee any possible difficulties with this swap? Im still gonna have to figure what trans i want to run, then i gotta get the adapter, radiator, fan(s), etc. Rome wasnt built in a day y'know.

make sure you got headers that'll clear.
make sure the dizzy clears the hood.
make sure the steering shaft clears the header.

if you plan on propane, remember that not every gas station has it, so that may be a problem, unless ya can use both.

hey I had a propane off road vehicle and it sucked. Most stations that sell it stop at 10 pm making it hard to get some times.

I was thinkin ford tranny, im not sure if i want a standard or auto yet, and i'll have to get the adapter for the toy t/c. Propane should work well if all is in good order. Refills can be done on the trail, as long as i carry some 20lb bottles of propane, wich is a given when your hauling a camper. The frame is good for the 302, its the camper that worries me[:0]
The rear half is rebuilt and the front half was amazingly solid, i guess i'll see how it all falls together. Or is that apart??
