Can you hear LP flowing internally?? Like a tire hiss?

I wouldn't recommend it unless you are really careful, but I've hand fed lp into the carb before and started them that way... At least that gives you more knowledge on exactly how much fuel its getting.

Or you might whisper just a touch of ether into the carb while turning it over and see if it fires or tries to take hold. If it backfires, you probably have the timing off or a wire or two wrong...

I've seen all sorts of quirky starting engines - one of my old MMs you had to take the natural gas feeder line off and let it pull fresh air briefly then start hand feeding fuel. It would then start easy and run like a sewing machine, but it wouldn't start for anything until you did that.

Dad also has an old HUA MM that you HAVE to primer it with a little gasoline before it will start.

I don't remember an M6 regulator specifically, but quite a few of them have a spring loaded button in the middle that you press to flood a little extra fuel to the engine.

Thanks, I sure hope mine will not require that type of procedure. I need to get another guy out there to help if I try either or something while cranking. The M6 is similar to the M5 that is no longer made. It has the spring loaded primer deal also and can also be run by electric. I can only hear lp going to the carb when I push the primer and it sounds like it is going to the air cleaner.. Of course I had the carb all off when I worked this thing over and all looked fine. I have never had the need to work on an LP carb I have an Ensign on my 930 but it works fine and I dare not fool with it!! I will see what I can find out tomorrow.

go get a remote starter switch from the autoparts or make one. Then you can stand on the ground and spray either or make adjustments by yourself. Just make sure its in neutral and the clutch is disengaged.
