Just wondering that sort of extractors people are running with their gas converters mounted on your drivers side strut top. I think pacemaker do an LPG specific extractor but it does not look like there is a whole lot of room to fit them still. Are most people moving their converters out of the way and if so where are you moving them to and was it much effort.

If E series then I installed an AU header tank and relocated the convertor to where the Header tank was originally mounted.

Some extractors will still fit. Depending on your setup its teh Pacemaker PH4499's your after, even then they would be a tight fit methinks with any lpg setup.

I had the same problem with my AU. I was told the 4499's would fit, but you still need to have minimum clearance from the converter. Forget what the distance was, but it also depended on the type of converter you have. I had a VIALLE converter which was a huge bastard. So it made it twice as hard to sort out.

There is a couple of ways you could do it. 1 is to fit the BA header tank in with associated hosing, and relocated the converter further forward so it sits under the header tank more directly. This should clear your number 3 pipe from the extractors. OR you get your converter re-plumbed to another location in the engine bay.

You could opt for a smaller more thinner designed converter instead which should give you more room.

My guess is your using a thinner converter not the Vialle converters commonly used in AU's

I have moved my Impco convertor from the passenger side to the drivers side. There is plenty of clearance with the convertor mounted in this position. They are Pacemaker Extractors.

You may need to lift the convertor up somewhat by modifying the mounting bracket.
