Some of the Toyota forklifts at my work place have close to 10,000 hrs and no engine work. Our place is really dusty too and they are still going.
I think it would be a neat conversion, I see a local landscape company with all their zero turns have propane tanks.
That would be one of those "rare" ones if it's a true factory option.

When I worked in the factory, it was my job to fill all the tanks for the forklifts as well as do the oil changes and filters.
In the 14yrs I worked there I never saw a forklift require any major engine work and those. Drivers punished them mercilessly. Most of them were clarks.

I just ordered a conversion kit that allows me to use propane or natural gas with my gasoline powered generator. It ends up making it a tri-fuel setup so that I can run any of the fuel types I choose.

They can be used on GT's as well since they are the same engine type.

 

The kit that I ended up getting was just over $100 shipped and it was on sale.

The guy that farrms next to me is a Miineapolis Moline fanatic. He runs his farm with a 100hp(I think) G100 running on propane.

I still use a Massey 50 that is propane, I love that tractor, the oil stays crystal clear for many, many hours of use

I'm a cub nut and never heard of this conversion model for a 104 but; it is known that on the 100 and early 102's the K-241 Kohler engines came standard with a LP head casting # 235461.

Any Details?

The Company is US Carburetion, the website is motorsnorkel.com

 

To get the kit that fits your motor you can contact them with the make, hp, and serial# of your motor, then they can setup the kit.
