Propane Carbs

At some shows I've seen people using propane to run small engines. I've seen this on antique engines and small hobby engines.

Do any GEM subscribers have any info on building propane carbs for use on small engines? Thanks.

Did you ever find the information you were searching for on propane carburetor? A good book with details about converting carburetors and building propane carburetors is "Generators and Invertors" by Steve Chastain ISBN 9780970220356. I took an old carburetor that the bowl and float were missing, likely off a Kohler engine, had a 5 gallon bucket of carburetors to pick one from, modified it per the book to power a JC Onan gen set, in which the carburetor was missing.
