I recently purchased an 87 ford e-150 with the 4.9l six in it. Noticed a switch next to the headlight ****, looked like a back up sensor. Had a big "R" with little lights. So I asked the guy, "Nope, setup for propane, never used it, but the guy I bought it from said that’s what it was." I was ecstatic. Only to find out that it wasn’t hooked up.
It is a Landi Renzo system, an Italian company. Can't find anything on their website to help me get it working again. Pretty sure everything but the tank is still on the van. Somebody told me that it was a factory option system from Ford, is that true?
I am quite a novice, and planned to have this van for years, a long term project. I was hoping to at the very least get a diagram on how everything hooks up to the propane (is it a vaporizer?) thingy under the hood. Things in a van get very cramped...
Note: topic was also posted in the 4.9l/300 forum, trying to cover all my bases.
Nobody? There's a picture of the fuel selector in my album (gas or LPG). Still need to take a pic of the unit under the hood. Also if anyone knows of a vehicle propabe conversion company within the area of Omaha NE, let me know. Thanks again.
