hey all

just chasing a summary/description of the tickford LPG system as fitted to my Gli wagon. just chasing how everything all works/ECU/switching from petrol to gas/gas tank levels etc - i'm clueless about LPG, so just want to know what i have to do/be wary of/keep an eye on, as i'm hoping to get it on the road this weekend after doing the head gasket

cheers!

I have a copy a diagram for the electrics - but it's for aftermarket fitted Vaille systems for EF's only uses the same vaille control unit as factory tickford but splice's in to the OEM loom and has a seperate control unit for the timing when running on gas. PM me if you want a copy of it.

The factory tickford units had the lpg timing controled by LPG ECU's.

There's some good information in the technical docuements on the factory Tickford set up: http://www.fordmods.com/forums/documents.php?doc=18

if your fuel guage reads both lpg and petrol content and if you don't have a central locking button on your dash but have a fuel selector push button there instead you have a tickford factory gas setup - there should be a separate tickford lpg manual as well as the normal car owners manual as well
