Hyster H50H:
Won't start w/o starting fluid

I just purchased a Hyster H50H serial#D3T2202Y
Recent tuneup, good compression, good spark, it needs starting fluid to start and then it will run fine. I'm pretty good with engines but no experience with propane powered. Where should I start?
Thank you

Am thinking this is the D003xxxxx serial number....as for being a lpg engine one thing to check would be the idle mixture adjustment...on the side of the "carb" where the lpg hose comes in from the vaporizor,there should be a large screw....turn this in all the way till it bottoms out then back it out 2 full turns to start..with engine running adjust as neccisary to get a good smooth idle...

That's the serial number that's printed on the nomenclature tag. It's a propane 4 cyl. I honestly don't know much more about it as I just bought it and the previous owner is looking for the paperwork.

I assume you're asking about the fuel system? I can find out later when i get back to the shop. How many systems are there? How would I be able to tell what system I have?

Fact of the week

John Lennon had terrible eyesight and was very self-conscious about it. Early in his career, he would not wear his glasses during performances. In the end, John's 'granny glasses' became one of his most iconic trademarks. His last pair, worn on that tragic day in 1980, are kept at 'The Beatles Story' exhibit in Liverpool, insured for over £1 million.
