New to old cars: should i go all gas

Hi All

I need to seek some advise.
I have just acquired a 1984 WB panelvan, mostly in original condition, 3.3L blue motor, 3 speed Auto on column.
Just picked van up after first road worthy attempt. Van is dual fuel, gas and petrol. Runs rough on petrol, good on gas.
Has almost all the emission fitting missing.
Speaking with mechanic, I asked is it better to go Gas only, no need for emission fittings. Would need to remove all petrol tank, pump, hoses etc.

Meet the Demolition Man! Lawrie’s type is a dying breed in Australia. Big, bad and tough, Lawrie doesn’t mince words or hold back the language. He’s a wheeler, dealer, junk man who does things his way.

Disc caliper rebuild

Hey guys im rebuilding my disc brake calipers for the front end. So far i have dismantled the calipers up to removing the pistons. I have tried blowing compressed air into the inlet port like my workshop manual suggests but its not working. Pistons wont budge. Any suggestion. These are rusted by the looks of it.

HK Holden Sedan Delivery...

This came up in my twitter feed today so I thought why not put it up again as it looks so good. [it's been on here before].

It was made from a ute and pieces of a van and a station wagon.

It's still registered so it must be around somewhere.

HG Wagon

I guys, there was a HG Wagon posted on here that was listed on ebay for sale, nice car and the auction finished at $36 600, with reserve not met, anyway the owners listed it on gumtree for $62 000. Now as much as it is a nice car, and you will never find another like it, that to me is a lot of money. But I guess each to his own.
Cheers,
Dave
