Why would you ruin a tractor converting it to burn gasoline from LP? I see it happen but I can't even begin to realize why anyone would do that.

No kidding!!! Of the 4 various makes of old tractors I own, only the first one my brother gave me runs on gasoline. So many benefits of propane:

No washing oil from the cylinders
No sludging of the oil
No flooding the cylinders
Fuel in tank lasts almost indefinitely
More power per cubic inch displacement

Something to think about when considering changing from LP to gasoline.

I might be wrong on some of this but, you need to change the heads and the distributor. on the distributor the change was only the curve and the springs. There was a different intake manifold on the gas G900. maybe also on the G1000. I suspect you have 4232 heads. you will need 4230 heads. Then there is the carb?

If you are as you say you are , a MM LOVER, Leave HER ALONE. Got a fellow her that LOVES his MM on LP! And why would you want to destroy her? So you can have conveniance of dumping gas from can into her for what little you might use her? Find yourself one thats on gas already and let those who want an origional buy this one. Love LP gas tractors and cats , only wish I had more.

Are you wanting to it before I convert it?? If so, send money and I will find another gas unit.

You don"t have the knowledge or parts to convert it. Why dont you put it in photo ads, sell it and buy a gasser you can pour gas into the tank? Then when you let it set a year or so, you can sell that one too and put in your ad, "carb needs replaced, gas tank needs cleaned". Think about it. I am speaking from experience of many many dollars thrown away in tractors. You have the best set up made ever. WHY THROW IT AWAY???? Listen to those who have learned and keep your $ in your bank account. If you took the time to learn (and it ain"t rocket science) to fuel a LP tractor, you"d love it. It burns clean, the engine will last 10 x a gasser. Do as you wish, it your tractor, but you"ll look back and remember what was said.

Kinda my point too Jerry. when you pull enough varnished, gummed carbs and cannot get the valve and needle seats out for stripping the brass etc etc, you learn to dislike gas. Many of these tractors sit for long periods and get gummed. Let a LP tractor sit for 20 years if you want, never have to worry about that varnish stinky mess. I wish every engine I had (save the diesels) ran on LP.
