not soo sure about the LPG setups, but you'll need 3 hoses and a heater tap, there's a short L shaped one that comes off one of the heater pipes on the firewall, heater tap goes into that, and the shorter of the 2 remaining hoses goes onto the other side of the heater tap and then onto the block above the water pump (there's probably a hose jonging the 2 heater outlets on the pump), the remaining hose should be flared and will have a bit of a bend on the end of it........ it goes from the water pump to the heater at the firewall

go to repco/autopro/etc for the hoses

The LPG convertor should be plumbed into the heater hoses using 'T' Pieces prior to the heater tap if this isn't done then with the heater tap closed the flow into the convertor is also shut off resulting in the covertor freezing over.

Be careful connecting them up to the existing heater core, the core may be f**k and that might be the real reason it is disconnected.
