check the wiring on both solenoids,1 in engine bay,1 on the tank,should have two wires each.then get some one to switch the gas,listen for a clicksound-tank first,then the engine bay.if both click you have gas to converter,may start.if not can be converter problem-internal or the runs a dead man switch which runs gas when the ignition is on-this has a fuse-check wiring is all on.

i always found the change-over on the factory systems to operate a bit strangely

i think the engine has to switched off, then press the button to change, then start, is that how your doing it?

sounds like corrossion or the diaphram is split,can get repair kits or replace converter,is there a gas place near you for repairs.there are 4-6 gas installers in wollongong,sell kits and converters,will repair it.

If it's factory gas ... I guess giving Boral a call in Arndell Park Sydney your best bet. Much cheaper than going to Ford
