Before we begin as you probably know Propane and LPG are flammable gases so be extremely careful and turbo jets can back fire or explode in certain cases. I am not liable if you or any person or your property are hurt or damaged if you try to build this.
Now for the fun stuff.

To make something like this you would need a well stocked tool kit which would include:
a drill to make things easier a drill press
an angle grinder
a cut off saw
of course a hammer
a few brains
and maybe a few more things.
The first thing i did was make an oil pump. To make this i used some rectangle shaped pipe, iron plates, hose, welding rods and an oil pump off a Subaru Ute. I welded the pipe to one of the plates, then drilled a hole for the oil pump to fit into( would have been easier to use an oxy). Next I had to put in the drive shaft to drive the oil pump (make sure the shaft is straight). I then had to seal the tubing using pvc pipe cement.
