PE-95 propane setup

Post by Bart1015 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 9:08 am

Hello all,

I was told that some of the PE-95 units were converted to run propane. If so, I would be interested in locating a complete setup for my PE-95.

If anyone has any leads or information, please PM me.

Thanks,

Brett

Some were, probably no proof the government did it, most likely a bunch of aftermarket parts. Nobody sells one made just for the PE units. You will need a generic setup. Capability to get a coolant source to it and make any modifications to hook it up.

I think all the parts are here and I would sell them. Who knows if they still work. Will have to look for them.

This install is not my work, I bought the unit as it sits and made it run on gasoline.

Adam,

I would like to try the setup, but you are correct, this is somewhat of an undocumented endeavor.

My main concern is that propane would really work nice for what I am looking for, but my unit is in pristine condition and runs great on gas. The gas consumption is the biggest issue. We had some major issues last year getting fuel when my county experienced huge large fires. We had no power and I ran my home on a 110 Honda generator for days.

I really want the ability to run my PE unit on propane or natural gas because it will run my well (220).

Considering that technology has really advanced in the last 65+ years and my money might be better spent on buying a new generator already setup for propane/natural gas for the house and keep my PE unit as is. I have been looking around and the new ones are a lot better priced then what I originally thought.

Don't go searching for the parts yet. Ill get back to you when I figure out what I will do.

Thanks for replying,

Brett
