Hyster S55XM:
truck starts and dies

I've got a hyster with a spectrum vaporizor and when I start the truck it starts and immediately dies. Thought it was a gas problem cause it starts just won't run, tested vaporizor and it was blowing 10lbs(way to much) so replaced it and same problem persists, pulled the gas line to the carburator from the vaporizor and nothing! So went to the elec shut off and pulled it apart and hit the key and have gas there so know the gas is coming in and not out any ideas???

One way I have learned to test for gas problem or another problem, I get a small lpg torch and place the nozzle in the mouth of the carb. Turn on the valve and see if engine starts and runs. If you get no hint of starting, it's not gas related. If it starts, you aren't getting gas. There are several things on the spectrum system that can prevent the engine from running. What happened to it initially? Was it running and quit or failed to start after sitting? You won't see gas in the hose from the vaporizer to the carb because carb vacuum is what opens the vaporizer.
