    3.5EFI misses and wont idle properly

    My 3.5EFI wont idle properly and misses badly when cold. The missing gets slightly better as it warms up but it still doesn't idle properly. Sometimes it will behave completely as it should and idle nicely. It did this today after being filled up with fuel. And then back to its usual tricks...

    Petrol Engines OMVL R90E - Running-in required?

    Having just replaced the Bigas regulator on my V8 with an OMVL R90E, I took it to a workshop to get it set up (as I can't justify the expense of buying my own exhaust gas analyser). They tell me it's correctly set; but the power is way down on what it was with the previous regulator. They...

    Petrol Engines V8 Runs Badly When I Switch to Petrol

    I have a strange problem...but enough of that, let's talk about Land Rovers. When I switch over to petrol from gas, hot or cold, the engine (3.5 V8, twin SUs) runs like a pig.

    Hi Guys Need your help with an upcoming LPG conversion. I have a 110 3.5L v8 running twin SU carbs. I have k&n filters on them but have been advised by an LPG kit supplier that these filters won't work with LPG - something to do with the amount of air they allow in being too much. Now...
