I figure I can try that, and if it doesn't work as planned, I can sell the intake part or save it for a spare.

It seems a lot harder to "flood" an engine with the propane, when doing mower conversion, because the gas can just leak out the muffler or carb if its too much, and when its running, it will just waste any extra propane gas by blowing it out the exhaust.
How are you going to run that as a throttle?
Still gotta have a since of humor.
