I also adjusted the throttle transfer jet and the other adjustment on a small Cam (cant remember it's name) following a video on the wiki. Put in new gaskets, Put it back on the van and had a couple or air leak iss...

Re: 1.9DG/LPG IDLE ISSUES

If it's driving, running and starting so well on LPG, leave it. The problem is on the carb. You need to find out why it needs the idle screw turned in so far to get the correct idle speed on petrol. (You may have gone as far as you can without a gas analyser (I sound like a broken record)). It's pr...

Re: 1.9DG/LPG IDLE ISSUES

So to report back. The van is starting easily on Lpg now, and drives fantastic. No flat spots or spluttering right through to 70. It's however idling way to fast. I tried reducing the bypass a tad but then I couldn't start on Lpg hot or cold so raised it. I assume it's running rich on Lpg so I need ...

Re: 1.9DG/LPG IDLE ISSUES

Should I try 0 bypass and increase the bias some?

I guess it's the bias that increases and decreases the idle speed?

Re: 1.9DG/LPG IDLE ISSUES

I can increase the bias to 15 flats and the idle gets faster but still slowly gets erratic and then dies.

Re: 1.9DG/LPG IDLE ISSUES

OK. So.

Power valve nearly fully open.

Bias 12 flats

Bypass. Half turn.

Engine will start and idle. The idle is slightly erratic and gradually slows until the engine. Dies.

Re: 1.9DG/LPG IDLE ISSUES

So now I have its idling with a half turn on the bypass.

What's the best procedure to get it running right or as close as. Idle doesn't seem to change as I increase the bias but will drop to a stall if I lower it.
