Grill parts didn’t make it run. Thought a grill Reg might have a chance of working like the original zenith. The diaphragm in the mixer may also be shot.

I think I need to find a proper impco mixer and put that on to match to modern vaporizer.

Or put it back to gasoline. Ford 8n tractor carb does not look far off, $90.

Doubt the grill regulator have the flow you’ll need. I couldn’t get my propane converted 3500w generator to run on bbq tank & grill regulator when applying heavy load via air compressor.

wouldn't run at all. probably flooded. set up that way, it just flowed gas until liquid ran out, maybe because it's not an "on demand" type regulator - or maybe because the mixer has a diaphragm or something that's not in working order.

Thinking about slapping one of these on

What the hell. So, what do the regulator/converter do for you without any of propane running through it?

It should be like this, as far as I understand;

Propane Tank > regulator > mixer

along with coolant running through the regulator which you did. but you installed a bbq grill regulator to the vaporizer directly, bypassing the regulator/converter?

No, vaporizor then regulator then mixer. can't regulate the pressure of the liquid fuel, that's done after it's back to gas. In the modern stuff, the vaporizer and regulator are one unit. In the old stuff on the lift now, they were two parts and the regulator is the known failure. Can't source new diaphragms for it though they are screw on, easy replacement. Just NLA.

Need to find my calipers to measure mounting bolt pattern. It's a week to get a carb, but I think I'll be further ahead for a $75 cost. Assuming it's 2-1/4 or 2-3/8, can just bolt on.

I fixed my post, oops. I meant to say mixer. 2 in 1 unit. Propane tank straight to regulator/vaporizer then to the mixer.

I should probably pull the mixer off the engine and go over it closely, there's maybe a slim chance that it's a dual fuel mixer and maybe I could add gasoline to it? That would be too good to be true.

Will tear things off later to see if I luck out and there's a gasoline feed in what's on there to try

Found I left the key on again. Dumb fuck.

Two coils on the way. Haven’t checked either coil I left keyed on overnight, but the first one rattled.

I wonder if that’s what killed the one that was on the motor? So easy to do when fighting with a no-start.
