won't fire

Unread postAuthor: sergeantspud2 » Sun Jun 19, 2005 10:05 am

i just put a propane injection on my gun because i thought it would make it easyer to fire. after installing it on my gun it wouldn't work. it use to fire every time i would pull the bbq lighter. so i decided maybe i needed more spark so i got a 100k volt stun gun. still it would only fire 1 out of 5 times and when it did fire it would only go about 20 ft. the thing i am going to try next is a chamber fan. would that help at all? is there such thing as cheep propane? it was the store brand. any help would be good.

you just need to adjust your pressure on your regulator, you probably have too much, or too little propane in your chamber, you used fuel tool right?

well, as long as your pressure on your regulator is at the right pressure you should be fine, also propane doesnt get to 90psi all the time, i like to design my meters so i can run about 35psi, so the tanks last longer. just go from a low fuel amount, to a high one, see when you get the best ignition and leave your regulator there
