Default Please identify this Mixer

I found in my "inventory " this propane mixer.
I have no idea where it came from or what it belongs too.
It just so happens to have the same bolt pattern as my Zenith 12912 carb.
Propane engines are not my bag.
Do I just clean it up and hook up a propane Tank???

Might it be from your Chrysler forklift engine?

The Mixer was here before the Fork lift, it was in a box of an auction score.
The fork lift had a block above the Zenith Carb that looks like the propane was introduced above the Carb. ( see other thread for Picture)
It will defiantly fit the Chrysler engine.

Correction the "mixer" will NOT fit on the Chrysler engine, The bolt pattern is smaller.
The Chrysler engine ( 216) has a wider bore.

That IS a Zenith gaseous fuel carbeurator... I have one essentially identical to it, but have been unable to find any documentation on it... so I don't know what it was set up for. The diaphram may be for metering, or it may simply be a fuel cutoff.

If you'd like to run an engine on propane, I'd recommend simply getting a new combination of regulated fuel, and a new demand regulator and a suitable mixer... both which are supported with good documentation.

an Impco 100 series mixer, and a Garretson KN with 'high flow' option orfice would do the trick nicely.
