    There should be a slow running mixture screw on the vapouriser Dave.

    You don't say but I'm assuming you are running a normal carb/mixer setup?

    If it's multipoint injection, then I'm sure there's someone here that can advise.

    As It ticks over on Petrol ok I assume it's only an lpg/mixture setting.

    Hi Dave
    I had a simmilar problem with my Winnebago Ford V8 , it wouldn't tick over and kept on cutting out on bends and islands , it ran fine on petrol .
    Turned out it needed a new idle control valve nothing to do with the LPG convertion diagnosed and repaired by Duncan ( Starspangledspanner)

    Hi Dave.

    My carb is some 30 years old....so...I bit the bullet and have just installed a brand new one....

    It was showing some signs of wear and I figured that if it helped the lpg conversion setup and running, and the fuel consumption it had to be a good investment.

    BTW If you ever need and bits...especially exhaust pipes making to your specs and drawings...I can highly recommend Cliff @ Carolina Classics....

    cliff@americanmotorfactors.com

    I sent him the drawing and he got it back within 3 days....BOUGHT THE SILENCER/MUFFLER AND GOT THE TAIL PIPE MADE UP TOO.

    Now I am very impressed with that as everything has to be made to measure.Fits perfectly.:thumb:

    VERY reasonable price too.You'll be surprised.

    Hope you sort it.

    Might well be worth talking to Duncan as Tony has mentioned as it is injected.

    Steve.

    hi steve , on reading your last post i dont think it would make any difference to running on lpg as you only use the throttle butterfly on a carb .should make the petrol running better , but do you use much petrol or stick with gas. cheers alan.
