It is pretty easy its just a mixer which replaces the carb ,an evaportor where the propane is changed to a gas and simple 2 wire hook up.

thanks chris, one wire is a ground and the other from ign swtch? is the vacum line from the evaporator manifold or port? plug gap larger than stock or smaller? what about the timing and do u have 2 recurve the dist?

smaller plug gap as lpg is harder to fire
less total timing, sooner, faster advance

are you doing a ford?
the recurve is real easy on a ford
I can shoot you a link on how, just got to find the smallest limit plate you can
I had Lucas at Lordco order me a rebuilt from a motor home to get the small advance plate
