'62 Overlander Dometic questions

Halfway through renovation of a kick-ass 1962 overlander...just started looking at the reefer. Dometic, looks like propane only. Can anyone please share a diagram of the propane piping?
I put a new gas hose/regulator/tank on front, turned it on...and to my surprise, gas/liquid propane began pouring from a severed copper line that I hadnt noticed coming from below the flooring next to the unit!!!!!! I can flare the pipe, add an extension...just need to know where to solder it to the unit.
Please help, its HOT in florida and my beer is suffering....

There should be a gas valve at the bottom of the fridge, easily accessible through the exterior access door. If you can find the burner and follow the piping backwards you'll find it. It ordinarily connects to the piping with a thread-to-flare adapter.

Be careful. You really should pressure test the piping and inspect the other appliances (or disconnect them and cap the lines) before turning on the propane.

This should help, it should have the model of your Dometic.
