The measurements for the impco 450 mixer can be made to work with a 3/4" flange crossing over the bolt pattern, The mixer heating will be a bit of an issue, but I assume the oil cooler will put out enough heat to rectify and heat exchanger issues in the mixer.
What I am wondering is if the rotary housing could be damaged by the cooler firing temps, and the cooler plugs?
What is the internal compression on the gas jobby?
Do the apex seals hold much pressure back, or are they for the oil?
And if you think the propane is 20-30% less power, you're either dumb, or just wrong alot, how do you lose that much power when burning more suspended gas particles, at higher firing pressures, at lower temperatures? I am pretty sure if you have heard of low power propane jobs, then they were set up incorrectly.
Or you heard that from your cousin that married your sister, anyways, thanks for the "GOOD" replies. I will keep you updated as to the power gains or possible loss, and the issues associated with propane in a rotary.
Okay.. so you come in here, ask a question with your first post, people actually try to contribute
to your thread (and you were surprised) so you repay the kindness of this forum by hurling insults at one of our members. Good job Cpt. Dumbass.
It's one thing to disagree with someone or think that they're wrong, it's another to go off the handle and imply that he's an inbred.
If you do anything like that again, you're getting the banstick. Play nice.
