Re: lpg toroidal tank

They actually list a Talbot carb mixer on their site https://tinleytech.co.uk/shop/lpg-parts/mixersetc-for-induction-systems/malefemale-mixer-52mm-talbot-carburettor-80010/. It's quite a common conversion as a large number of campers were built on the Talbot Express chassis and it makes sense, parti...

Re: lpg toroidal tank

You won't get sufficient 'suck' (what Simon refers to as signal) without a mixer. The output of the vaporiser is set at fractionally below atmospheric pressure so the airflow through the mixer venturi draws the gas in. Much the same as how the carb works, it has to have the venturi to reduce the pre...

Re: Shell removing lpg

Interesting that they refer to www.filllpg.co.uk, an unofficial site set up by a member on here rather than their own (which is highly inaccurate). I also think part of the problem is that the number of LPG fuelled vehicles is under reported. According to DVLA there are around 150,000 LPG powered ve...

Re: lpg toroidal tank

If I remember right, doesn't the Talbot van your camper is based on have the spare under the bonnet, above and to one side of the engine? Are you intending putting the tank under the bonnet?

Re: Time to do some tuning

I don't know much about injections systems other than the theory of how they work and something seems really wrong here. 3mm nozzles and 1.3bar gas pressure should be too much for your engine I would have thought. I once found a chart showing nozzle sizes, pressure and engine size but can't find it ...

Re: lpg toroidal tank

Isn't there anywhere underneath where you can fit a larger tank? 32 litre tank will only fill to 25 litres so you'll be lucky to manage 100 miles on a tankful.

Re: Shell removing lpg

Probably right. I was talking to the owner of a Shell franchise filling station (as opposed to one owned by Shell) and he told me that Shell set his fuel prices. He said he would love everyone to switch to LPG as there was a far greater profit on it than petrol or diesel. He reckoned he could knock ...

Re: Time to do some tuning

No doubt Brian or Simon will give you more detail but the difference between the petrol and gas injector times is too great, gas should be between 1.2 and 1.5x the petrol times, yours are at almost 2x. You either need slightly larger injector nozzles or higher gas pressure.

Re: Diy fitting?

You only need straws if you can't put the nozzles anywhere near where the gas wants to be. If you can get the nozzles next to the petrol injectors, then put them there and no need for straws. They don't need to protrude into the manifold far, look at how far the petrol injectors protrude. Why rely o...

Re: Diy fitting?

And I've noticed for sale things like ignition timing advancers to try and maximise the energy potentials of lpg, am I right there and can they be fitted to any systems and does it work or am I completely mistaken there, just wondered? LPG has an Octane rating of 112 so you can run more compression...

Re: Diy fitting?

I'm not loathing of them at all, just the poor design on the pre-2003 engines. MR2 engine swap was pretty straightforward. Support the weight of the engine and gearbox on an engine crane, disconnect it from the rest of the car and lower it down to the ground. Then attach the engine crane to the car ...

Richard thanks v much for your input and knowledge, yeah that ties in, did you manage to fit a lot to your daughters mr2 it looks quite cramped in there to access drilling the inlet manifold?

If it's the same as the MR2 (which uses the same 1ZZ-FE engine and probably the same ECU), the common supply to the petrol injectors are Black/Red wires with the with the individual wires being cylinder 1, Black/White from pin D1 at the ECU, cylinder 2, Black from pin D2, cylinder 3, (marked as L on...

Re: Diy fitting?

Look at the wires on each injector, there will be one that is the same colour on each and another that is a different colour to each one. The ones that are all the same colour are the +ve supply while the others are the trigger wires which are the ones you need to tap into. It's easier to pick up al...

Re: USB interface problem OMVL Dream

Be wary, there have been numerous problems with modern rotor arms, particularly those marked as being Lucas. Often, a car that won't run with the new components will run perfectly well with the old ones. The ignition amplifier does give trouble when it gets hot and there are kits available to reloca...

Re: Advice please!

IAC, and everything else on the petrol side, should remain active. The only thing that has changed is that the petrol injectors are no longer firing but with the emulators in there the petrol ECU isn't even aware of that, it thinks it is still doing the fuelling.
