Re: lpg feed pipe size on 500 bhp engine.

Easiest option to get between 12mm and 16mm is to buy a filter with the outlets you want to convert between. Just be glad your not dealing with anything using the 14mm size that Landi used for some reason, even finding the pipe to fit that properly was a pain.

Re: lpg feed pipe size on 500 bhp engine.

That listing actually has 2 sets not just one so might be a bit cheaper than your thinking. Those are the same injectors all my current vehicles use and i've got no complaints about them, With nozzles removed they can cope with a Rover v8 4.0 Thor if that helps?

Re: Slight gas smell - normal?

That being the case, I'd suspect your leak is somewhere on the feed itself - if its more at the front than elsewhere, the solenoid post on the vapouriser would be worth checking (you might not see that with the spray either as the point of leaking would be obscured). I'd expect if it was there, that...

Re: Slight gas smell - normal?

Possibly as you won't get even fueling if one is leaking. Its worth going round the jubilee clips to check they are tight as well. If you have the software then monitor gas pressure when it's on petrol or engine not running, it should stay reasonably static

Re: Slight gas smell - normal?

Not usually no, if you can smell it then it sounds like you have a leak. Only 2 places it's likely to develop a leak and not be detected by the spray is the vacuum connection from the vapouriser to inlet manifold, or the injectors not closing properly. If you can access the hoses then remove an end ...

Re: Ford Transit Mk7 Landirenzo/Omegas problem

I'd suggest before you make that trip. check why the EML is on - Reason being is if its on for some reason outside of the lpg side of things, you might want to address it before you make a trip anywhere to fix the lpg side. You already have Forscan (which I've got and find very capable, will let you...

Re: Ford Transit Mk7 Landirenzo/Omegas problem

The lpg software will only show codes generated by the lpg system, most of which will stop it running on gas.

Does forscan tell you why the eml is coming on?

Re: Toyota 2AZ-FE on gas

You do need to avoid it running too lean - which would be done via the setup and calibration. You also need to setup the dose rate, but again this would be done at that point (not a bad idea to check it when you refill though) Trouble is that table only tells you a little of the info you'd need to d...

Re: Toyota 2AZ-FE on gas

Its a lot cheaper to put the lube system on and fill it than to have to have the cylinder head repaired so probably a good idea unless someone can confirm its not needed (fairly sure most Japanese engines are recommend to have flashlube/valve saver fitted)

Re: Toyota 2AZ-FE on gas

Don't know about your particular engine, but the valve saver stuff does work - I've got a Ford Zetec that has done 50k on gas, with jlm valve saver fluid used on it and its still working now. The Zetec is known for having soft valve seats which don't stand up well on gas without lube, Mines still go...

Re: How do you keep your fuel pump alive?

I've not found it to be a problem really with a sequential system, or even the old Necam metering head system for that matter. I just fill the tank up when it get down below the 1/4 level and leave it at that. Your always starting on petrol and staying on it till the coolant warms up a bit anyway, w...

Re: Hesitation on moving off

I would guess the first question that will be asked is where you have put the manifold nozzles, and how long are the pipe runs from the injectors to them?

Re: Ford Transit Mk7 Landirenzo/Omegas problem

I wouldn't personally invest any more in the Landi electronics - for what they are they are expensive and not particularly good either. I'd suspect thinking about it that part of your misreading problem may be down to using 64 bit windows - which might also be why 2.9.0 won't install (I would suspec...

Re: Ford Transit Mk7 Landirenzo/Omegas problem

I'd suspect its more likely the software misreading it as you say - The Landi software is all rather primitive to look at, and there seems to be a multitude of different versions about of very similar software. Can't see both ECUs failing in exactly the same way, hence why i mentioned the wiring, th...

Re: Ford Transit Mk7 Landirenzo/Omegas problem

If your using the Omegas ecu (I'd not realised that was 2 different ECUs you had before now) you should find Omegas 2.9.0 works with it (It looks like you have the same ecu there as the one I had that i suspect is faulty). Now i think about it, I think the version of that lead i had some problems wi...

Re: Cannot switch to LPG

Mine had a bunch of relays on a board hidden in the drivers footwell, along with the rpm filter, and lpg ecu. Theres no guarantee where yours might be fitted, but tracing the wiring back may lead you to some relays. You can remove the coil without a problem (the grey or black or blue plastic block)....

Re: Old Zavoli System, Need a little help please

That does suggest the vacuum line might be the source of the leak - as it will leak more the more its sucked on (which it would be with closed throttle) plus at closed throttle theres much less available air to dilute the leaking gas with. Have a look when you've got your lead through at the temp se...
