Re: Ford 4.9/300 Propane Problems

So I swapped the Model E into the lift and I still have to push the primer button when going up hill or using hydraulics.

Should I start messing with the power valve while driving up hill to see if it clears up or does this sound like a misadjusted lever?

Re: Ford 4.9/300 Propane Problems

I got caught up with a few other things around the shop but I'll be putting in the Model E tomorrow and we'll see what happens.

I'll be sure to let you guys know. Thanks for the help so far.

Re: Ford 4.9/300 Propane Problems

Okay. I’ll put in the model e and see what happens.

One thing I was thinking about is the mixer only about half a turn from being set all the way rich as far as fuel adjustment goes. Maybe it’s not getting enough fuel which is causing me to set it so high?

Could be way off with that one

Re: Ford 4.9/300 Propane Problems

I don't have a L on hand. All i've got is an E.

Would an E be oversized? Is that possible?

Re: Ford 4.9/300 Propane Problems

We don't have a tach on the motor but theres no way we're exceeding 2500 RPM. It only bogs down when its under a heavy load until we push the primer button on top of the vaporizer. It'll bog down at any RPM when under a load. I only ask about the model E because it's what I've seen on all the conver...

We've got a forklift we just acquired with a Ford 4.9 I6. It currently has a Model J vaporizer and a CA125 Mixer. The engine misfires and bogs down when going up hill unless we push the primer button on top of the vaporizer. Is the Model J too small of a vaporizer for this engine? Mixer too small? I...
