Dual Fuel on a '88 F250

<HR style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #d1d1e1; COLOR: #d1d1e1" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->
I just purchased an '88 F250 4X4 351 5spd that has a full propane conversion, for greater flexibility I would like to convert it to dual fuel. The installer used an Autotronic 5910 Dualcurve and I am looking for info from anyone that has expirience with these units.
From what I can see on page 7 of the installation manual:

http://www.dualcurve.com/5910-INST.pdf

all I need to do is wire in a switch and I should be already to go, can anyone confirm or add to this.
I was also thinking that as these unts are no longer available new maybe I should try and find one or two extras in case my dies.

Thanks, Greg

gasman6674 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
If the gasoline injectors, fuel pump and tanks are working go for it, you a 3-way switch that will allow you to switch back and forth. What mixer/system does it have on it?
If it is an Impco CA425 you will need to rig up a solinoid to apply vacumn to the top of the air valve when you are on gasoline or it will run really rich due to restricted airflow.

Yes it has a Impco CA425M-2 mixer so that means that I should be good to go . Thanks for your help and I may ask more questions when the install time comes.
