help - adjusting LPG

Hi,

My EA's gas system was installed by Mega Gas Australia and the components are labled - Lovato - ( installed at the end of 2001 ) there appears to be only one visible adjustment on the hose from the converter to the EFI intake.

Can someone please detail where the idle and run adjustments are on these systems please, the idle is currently way too rich and too slow.

Thanks Prof. Rabbit

roll Re: help - adjusting LPG

I've got an EL on gas, with a Landi convertor, the adjustor screw on the hose to the intake, is what I've been told is the power valve (limits how much gas is fed to the intake?). The Landi convertor has an adjustment screw on the face of it. If you've looked hard and can't find any adjustment on the convertor... maybe it doesn't have one?

Basically, if you don't already know where all the mixture screws are on your convertor that usually means you are not the right person to do the job of tuning it.... harsh but true.

Re: help - adjusting LPG

Each converter is different, so to is the placement of the adjustments, I started washing engine parts when I was 10, that was 38 years ago, I could ask you what you know about donkey engines on a D2 crawler, or a thousand other questions.

The Forums are a source of information, don't assume the person asking the question needs your kind of answer.

Re: help - adjusting LPG

Sorry Prabbit. I've not been able to find any nitty gritty info on the lovato. Obviously any idle adjustment screws would stand out like the proverbial. I don't know if newer systems use the gas computer to control the gas flow - everything else is computerised now, so why not gas?
