Sounds to me like he want 4x4 to go out wheeling a little! The vacuum actuator is removed from the front axle tube. I was going to do that anyways, it just means letting the insurance people know you have changed the fuel system on the vehicle. There are probably more out there. Placing the vehicles transfer case in 4-wheel drive and pulling the Posi-Lok cable handle slides the shift fork and collar to connect the freewheeling right axle to the driven left axle. The local diesel shop was telling me there was only 2 propane systems installed on trucks in the whole of B.
In this area propane never got below 30 cents a litre its pretty much being 20 cents cheaper than reg gas. Maybe I'm crazy but I have an E-150 Conversion Van I really like as a family hauler, tower, etc. Good luck and if I can help answer any questions let me know. Can't exactly bolt a front crossmember to the krinkle section. Had to make modification to make work. One truck I had was 460 powered I got better mileage on pump gas than I did with propane.

Front Spindles Included: No Master Cylinder Included: No Brake Booster Included: No Brake Hoses Included: No Quantity: Sold as a kit. I was very excited to get this kit with my tax return money, now an wishing I would not have got it. A bit more detail would be nice.
Engaging the transfer case and pulling the Posi-Lok handle will slide the shift fork and collar to connect the freewheeling right axle to the driven left axle. Hey if you want to waste your money on a propane conversion go ahead you will not gain much. Both front wheels are now engaged and pulling the vehicle. I've measured a few of my neighbours 4x4's and it looks like I can bolt up a pair of 4x4 I-beams in place of my 4x2 I-beams with no problem, of couse with the appropriate spindles and rims. I had to fabricate shorter spacers for those. No more pushing a button and hoping your 4-wheel drive engages.
If you are real interested I know someone that has a 89 to 91??? No pictures, no details, nothing specific. As for my experiences with the old carbed version I had: no complaints. Had their work checked out and once the inspector was satisfied the install had been done safely and correctly he was issued a sticker of certification. Insanity is one or more persons' opinion. Or try to find a donor vehicle with what you want to run.
The local diesel shop was telling me there was only 2 propane systems installed on trucks in the whole of B. Man, fabbing the mounts and swapping in a 4wd trans and tcase, mounts for the front axle, getting the steering to work maybe a new box and getting a driveshaft made is a ton of work. Many moons ago Four Wheeler Magazine did a 2wd build and had a few trail run articles. Also, there are no useful visual diagrams or photos in the instructions. I suspect it will but if anyone knows it'll save me harassing the neighborhood 4x4 owners.
Toby Sure you can do it. Sorry for being so blunt but you don't benefit whatsoever from a propane conversion unless you have a big honking big block like a 534 Ford. Think outside the box or get in line. It used to run and drive but the e barke failed and it rolled over a large embankment destroying most of the body work. Also Pull N Save is having a big sale weekend sale. You'll enjoy the rhythm of modern stopping power afforded you with Stainless Steel Brakes cast iron or aluminum calipers unless otherwise noted , brake pads, rotors, and all necessary brackets, hardware, and bolts.
Anyone done this before that might be able to help me out? Ya I think you did say welcome, thank you. Thermal Linear Actuator The failure prone thermal linear actuator is replaced with the cable operated 4x4 Posi-Lok system. If you plan on using a Ford axle the output is on the wrong side also.

I want to see if my skyjacker Radius arms will accept a 4x4 I-Beam. If you were however to stumble onto an F350 then that would make a good donor truck as it would have essentially all the parts you would need and beef it up quite a bit. I've found some great info on google. I know of a guy who is doing this on a newer E series, can point you his way if you're really interested. Used to be, when I was running propane that I could buy propane for 16-20 cents a litre at the pump. Everything took way long then it should have.
The 4x4 Posi-Lok Advantage 4x4 Posi-Lok puts the driver in control of the 4-wheel drive engagement. These trucks are wicked cheep and are all over the place! Did you begin this idea with a full plan including the intended use of the truck? Might be easier in the long run to just buy another truck like the one you have thats 4 wheel drive and make one out of the two. The bigest thing on them is cutting the front end that exists out of there. I wouldn't even bother with a dual fuel system its nothing but crap it never pays for itself in fuel savings you actually loose money. The propane systems have to be registered and legal they can keep track of how many are out there. On a technical note does anyone know how tall the I-Beam is where it attaches to the radius arm on a 4x4 89 F150? You've beat your last drum!
