It can happen but the solution is pretty nerdy. RF interference can happen from the inverter so it needs shielding or needs to run on a different frequency. The hard part is working out where in the system the interference is coming from. Can try and isolate it  like does it happen at nite when the inverter isnt running? Probably best to chat to the solar guys as Im sure they are aware of it.

Interesting changing the venue from a place that worked so well. I hope the new commercial venue does not kill the vibe that Conondale has. I wonder if we will find out the reasoning behind the move?

Thinking outside the square. around 10 years ago I  assembled a few taps for some guys who were  doing drags and it would depend on how much room you have but the flow is there.
 a 1/4 " annodised manifold and mf mini WOG valves with Brass presfits with locks  using HDPE line.
 Inlets are fed to the manifold via each end  but to keep the flow, separate valves need to be used on each outlet or each inlet.
 Can do a 1/2 three way air manifold  with single valve and three tailpieces but looks like a milking machine and not a tidy install.
 Fuel normally closed solenoid valve could also be used.

For a purely mechanical compact system the Pingel is the go.

i think there is only one triple that likes a drink more than the kwaka and thats a Benelli. Should fit the jap triples being a euro I would think.
 There are two styles, the hex with outlets equally spaced and the neater design guzzler model with all outlets facing rear at 90 degrees.
 Harley speed shops use then a fair bit though they will only have NPT single and dual in stock but can get you the others.

 try these guys

Did you mean Pingel? I sound like Siri.

Hi flow taps and heaps of suppliers all over Oz. Very common in racing and drag applications.

The TS250 uses the same hub as the 400 and Im sure all the backing plates have the Suzuki S like this one.

 The GT250 backing plates also had the S as did the GT550 so I dont think its suzuki.

For the last few days ive been trying to recall where the hell Id seen that pigeon foundry mark previously as its familiar but its not coming to me at all.
The Japs have a long history with metallurgy and about every prefecture has its own foundry.
Mostly I stick with Suzuki but there have been a few oddballs like bridgestone. That Logo has me stuffed but I have seen it before.
 What did it come with?

Gas threads got changed a few years back and besides the previous different LPG threads there is a new one that is in fact a very old one and i think its whitworth.

As with anything they probably did this to stop the unlicenced from blowing themselves up. Its still possible to find adaptors that will go from the new to what you have but its a royal PITA. Give a gas fitter a bell and save your headache or buy a dedicated Natural gas  unit.

Not quite GMC but close. The hole arrangement isn't square and vertices measurement is directly above.

Remember guys these were Yankee devices so would be US  gauge and US imperial measurements and it's not symetrical. On my phone so techy stuff is difficult.

33.5 horizontal and 22.5 verticle.

That's measured outside to outside  with a hole 8.9
I will stick some more pics on the fb post.

Good thinkin GMC .
 Via a dodgy pocket knife blade as a backing we get 1.02 as plate thickness.
I dont have a decent hosting account or I could post a pic. I will stick a close up on the Facebook page for perusal.

My Mic comes in at 0.344/8.74, Thats complete with paint and a few years of corrosion so Id go with 3/8th

Bit difficult to measure thickness as its edges are folded and I cant get the Mic in there as its too close to the pipe.

 Glad to hear your back on deck  I look forward to seeing the pics with much eagerness,
if they are as the pics CG kindly posted.. Im the next owner,
