its the crankcase ventilation so if there is lpg getting into the oil it goes back into the intake and not out into the air

It's there to prevent LPG from entering the Sump and potentially blowing the sump off.
Im a Taxi mechanic and i've seen it happen. On a petrol falcon the PVC hose enters under the trottle body potentially allowing LPG to enter the engine. Hope this helps.

its a plastic plate that goes in between the isc and throttle body...
you just need to re fit it under the isc

Any LPG place should be able to sell you the little plastic spacer to attach the hose to.

The AU plate from Ford is the right one to buy for an EF/EL engine and its not expensive to buy from Ford

yea you need to drill the holes in the plate to use the au one on an ef..

i found out that there is one available for the ef/el from ford but at $70 , best off getting the $20 au one and drill it out..
