Re: Help needed with a new carb!

Re: LPG conversion won't run on petrol when switch from gas

Just to add to Aidans post, if the conversion has been done correctly, the fuel pump will be running all the time even on LPG, it is the injector set that gets switched off, so heed his advice and look for any place it might have had contact with an earth or chassis point, lots of good advice on thi...

Re: Kick down

John you can adjustthe kick down by the rod that goes to the the throttle linkage, lengthening the rod will give you an earlier kickdown, you need to check why its stopped working though, fluid level ok? throttle cable stretched? linkage at gearbox come adrift or seized?

Re: Engine Suddenley Stopped

Exactly right because of the lower calorific value of lpg it takes a fair bit of power to ignite it, this tends to load the coil because its working so much harder to ignite the lpg, cheap coil start to warm up and in any electrical circuit the hotter the unit the bigger the resistance, and because ...

Re: Engine Suddenley Stopped

Trying it on petrol may not give you the root cause, by all means try the above and they are good suggestions, however LPG is harsh on the ignition system and it could be a sign that your coil if giving up, they will run until it overheats and breaks down, let it cool and its fine again for 1/2 hour...

Re: electric fuel pump

And for safety sake run through a relay with the oil sender as switched earth or the charge light (blue wire) as a positive trigger, then if you stall or heaven forbid have a fire your pump won't carry on if the engine stalls and feed it.
