No problems Kent,
The engine has a 10.5:1 compression.
While not overly excessive, I have to run it at TDC to stop the pinging 
on our lousy unleaded fuel <gloom>.
I will start gathering bits in 2008 once I have the go-ahead from the 
local vehicle registration authorities.

I am hoping that removing the petrol tank will give me sufficient room 
to mount a "scuba" style gas set.
Carburettor will be a specialist LP gas unit from
attached to a standard RR EFI plenum chamber.

There was a Victorian P6B converted in 1996.
