Cool, thanks for that. So is the AC compressor under the alternator? I think I can see the accumulator in the usual place.

Interesting layout....
Sideways ECU, relocated overflow bottle and an improved tensioner adjustment system, the bad thing is it looks like the PS lines cross in front of the thermo housing

Needs parts?

Wow, stainless braided fuel supply line.

What is the small rectangular manifold with all the rubber lines and solenoids?
Some extra wire runs also?

Looks like LPG injection, a lot of the Jeep's I saw in UK wrecking yards and on the web had LPG conversions due to the insane price of fuel there. With gas running approximately $8 a gallon for regular unleaded vs $4.25 for a gallon of LPG you can see why

Also, Cris, try to fill out as much info in your profile as possible, makes it easier for us to help you if we know the basics

Yes, it is converted to run on LPG. We are currently paying around $10.50 a gallon of petrol! LPG is half the price. I have a 20 litre petrol tank and a 75 litre LPG. LPG isn't good at low temps so petrol is used until the engine warms up. The stuff on the top of the engine is the LPG injectors. Thanks for all your interesting input....

Wow! I converted the prices off what I found online to USD and was shocked, I'm even more shocked now that you posted the real prices!! I'd be eating top ramen forever the way my 5.9 drinks supreme!

Not to be a bother but could you post up some shots of your LPG setup? like the tank and distribution block and how its plumbed into the intake manifold? I'm really curious how the factory system and LPG system are meshed into each other. Does it have a manual/automatic switch to change it over or does it supplement the factory system all the time? Thanks!

that adjustment bracket on the alt reminds me of an old school chrysler back when they ran multiple "V" belts... but the LPG.... that looks interesting. I am curious as well.

Bumping this old thread but I also have the RHD Euro build, mine is a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee with an LPG duel fuel setup.
In mine it is setup with a manual switch so that you can interchange from LPG to regular fuel and back again. This is my setup.
