I've heard talk on this forum about people putting new gaskets/diaphrams into a converter after years of operation. Where do you buy these kits? Do the LP gas installers sell these to people off the street?

I've noticed that the coolant inlet/outlet rubber seals have fallen apart so it will only be a matter of time before a leak occurs. It's a Renzo Landi converter and I would guess it is about 9 years old.

i had a leak from the coolant outlet of my OMVL r90e convertor, i just went to my local LPG installer place and asked if they do rebuild kits for the convertors. they said yes so i got one. complete kit was about $90 but you can buy the bits seperate depending on what you need.

Thanks for the info. My wife spoke to our local installer (he works next door to her) and found him very approachable and easy to talk to. I think I'll just chat to him if I need anything. He did a quick fix on the fairlane yesterday (after I played with the stepper motor) and its running well. He didn't mention anything to her about the coolant connections. I'll just keep an eye on it for now.
