Hi everyone,

Usually my TB42 runs great, but recently (not gradually, is was all of a sudden) It wont idle and has lost power on petrol. Switch to gas and it runs fine.

Should I be looking for something like maybe a blocked fuel filter or more into actual carby issues?

Has anyone experienced sudden loss of power and idle on Petrol before?

I had the same problem when I first got the shorty.

I had a proper service done. air filter looked like the inside of a vacuum cleaner, plugs were filthy, replaced some ignition leads and installed a pertronix and had the gas properly retuned,

mine would break down on petrol after it got to about an hrs driving but was fine on LPG. I also had a family of dragonflys and locusts stuck in the bend where the snorkel meets the fender...

all the above fixed it.

Thanks for the reply, I will have to get onto doing a complete service on it.

Funnily enough, it started running fine again. I run it on fuel during the week as I only live 2km from work, and cold starts on gas are not really fun.

I went for a highway drive yesterday and ran it on gas for 100km or so, switched it over to petrol today and now its running like **** again o_0

Will have to see what its like after full service.
