Re: 302 Windsor Miss & Backfire

backfires under load usually indicate a lean condition. I'm not an expert on LPG but perhaps get that checked out.

Also LPG is renowned for burning out the coils on these EFI Windsors (due to the extra load put on them)

Re: 302 Windsor Miss & Backfire

if not a new conversion, my very first port of call would be the diaphragm in the converter.

PS....backfire from the exhaust is RICH....unburnt fuel exploding in the mufflers, backfire through induction system is incorrect timing, or sequence (i.e 1 or more leads on the wrong plug)

Cheers
