I've seen several K341 conversions to bi-fuel (propane or gasoline) out there, mostly on generators, though.

 

Is anybody on here running a propane conversion? Maybe one like this?

I saw a youtube video a while back where a guy converted his ford garden tractor (1960s) to run on wood chips or something like that.

I have one of these for my gasoline generator.  It works great, actually makes it a tri-power, gasoline, propane,and natural gas.

 

Works very well.

 

If you go this route, call them up and give them all the information about the motor you are going to use it on. They will match up all the parts that will work with the motor you have.
