WB Tonner on Staright Gas

Greetings All,

I have WB Tonner 308 that runs straight gas. It spends more time shedded then seeing sunshine.
In the past, its doesn't get started much or driving either but in saying that it has always started even if it been a year or so. My problem is now that I actually want to do some work to it, it won't start. I have replayed new battery and all fluids are fine but haven't started down the road of dumping this and replacing that, which is going to happen. i have dash lights, prime the gas as per normally would but winds/wirl sounds but not cranking over.
What suggestions or possibilities could explain this and what/how would i do to fix/replace issues.

Cheers Jeani

get rid of the gas is my thoughts, If it has a manual primer on it that will never pass a roadworthy they have been illegal since the 90's is the rest of the system in date if not get rid of the gas? The gas wiring wont have anything to do with the starter circuit is the problem with the neutral safety switch ? if you saying the whirling sound is the starter motor turning but the engine not turning over the starter motor is rooted

I had to give up trying to hot up the old holden 6 after I drove mums Avalon.

Check the power supply to the starter.
If it is whirring it might not be getting enough current to throw the solenoid out enough to engage the flywheel.
I'd agree with the comment above. Toss the gas. From my experience, the money you save per litre will be wiped out by the higher fuel consumption on gas.

Old is good.

Yes I work in the gas pipeline industry and looked at doing this 20 years ago to my TPI Chev, had a chat to a taxi driver that was a good friend of the family
And he said “don’t waste your money “
Even blokes I work with NOW say the same thing, IF you do a lot of long distance driving but you have to do a lot,
If it’s a Sunday cruiser Don’t bother with gas you lose to much on short trips

As I always say
Stay safe all

Sounds like your starter solenoid is stuck. Get a long piece of wood, hold it against the starter and hit the wood a couple of times with a hammer. Try starting again. If still no go, it all depends on how mechanical you are as to what your options are..

I used to love the stuff up the compression and nice drives when it was cold with a cold air intake but with butane being mixed with it and tax ,also most lpg mechanics aren't worth [Naughty Pottyword] basically there just solenoids and switchs .Mine wouldn't start once and l ran a extra earth wire from the lpg fuel gauge and it worked don't ask me why nine times out off ten l found earth wire was to blame when it wouldn't start .PS don't take your car to top off the range mechanics in Toowoomba there shonky as and have met people that say the same .PS if the starter ain't kicking in give it a hit works
