    Been up cleaning out the inside of the bus and playing run the engine for a while.

    I then went to give it some revs and no throttle:Doh::cry:

    It the Ford Ford F53 chassis with the 460 engine.

    I take that its a linkage throttle? cable??

    It still has the spring on the pedal.

    It's done 160 miles since the LPG was fitted and drove home fine from them.

    Advice please?

    Your gonna need two people John and do a physical check to make sure the throttle is actually connected and working at the engine end, if it is you have sensor or ecu issues, may be just a gremlin and be fine next time,

    Ps is the fault apparent using petrol and gas or just gas

    Geo was running on petrol.

    Went to rev it a bit once warm to chop it over to gas but just left with tick over.:Sad:

    Hi John usually if it's a cable the throttle pedal flops around (in my experience) :BigGrin:

    Have to admit all on cars.

    You are probably right. If you get a torch you can usually tell by having a look behind the throttle pedal. :BigGrin:
