Lewis Hamilton said that winning his first race felt better than having sex. Kimi's reply to that was, Maybe he never had sex.

Just read through the thread, you have certainly put a lot of effort into it and it is looking good.

However... the reason I started reading is that I have a similar starting problem with my SE7, when I can get it to start it is definitely not running on all cylinders until it is warm enough for the LPG to cut in when it idles normally. I had it converted to run on LPG in April 2006 with 243K on the clock( now 434K), I was driving 200 miles to work and back each day and petrol had just hit 93p a litre, LPG was 48p.

So the ECU is OK (LPG getting signals to fire injectors) and plugs firing, have checked the fuel pump relay and that seems OK, I can hear the pump buzzing and there is fuel on the rail, have opened the valve and fuel is ejected and I have checked the injectors and they are all spraying.

I was hoping that you would have the solution to my problem but I will try putting in a new fuel filter and may have to acquire a fuel pressure tester as it has been suggested that it could be low fuel pressure and/or lower the tank and check/replace the in-tank pump.

According to the latest figures there are 44 SE6s on the road and 54 on SORN.

Keep faith, you will get it on the road again and all the work will be vindicated.

I will keep following your progress in case you get yours running before I do.

Thank you LE7...sounds like you are having fun....?

Right...Update time....Put the Last hose clip on....and filled up with plain water to see any leaks....OMG there is none...at the moment....So this is one of the Main Issues I had way back when the MOT Ran out....Obviously when cold there is little pressure in the system so I`m only half way there...

434K on the clock..!!  :o :o

Wow.....that's some mileage indeed. When I last put fuel in it, I noticed that my SE6 has got 82,211 on the clock. Good to know they go for miles  :)

Drives: an original SE6 auto, 81,000 miles (approx) and still going strong......(but some work is needed!). Now my second car.
