Repair or replacement of propane cylinder

My WESTFALIA VW Campmobile has a propane stove with a MARSHALL BRASS Low Pressure two stage L.P.G. regulator. The propane cylinder needs servicing: the filler valve is bent and the outage valve does no longer stop the flow of gas. I tried to find a local business that would service the system, but to no avail. I contacted MARHSALL BRASS 4 times by email, but this business simply ignores my request for information. Please advise. Thank you.

Received new Maytag Gas Range. I have propane. . After switching the brass aperture to the propane side, there is no fitting to connect to gas line 3/8" female to 1/2" male the 3/8" has an odd thread


The odd thread might be a left-hand thread; fuel gas connectors often are.

As well as switching the air bleeds to propane you need to ensure the right gas pressure is being delivered to your stove.

A local plumber's merchant or similar should be able to supply the fittings you need.

How does my engine brake work?


Engine brakes or Jacobs brake on diesel engines work by using engine oil pressure controlled by a electric solenoid in three stages, the oil pressure is directed to a piston which holds down an exhaust valve slightly approx 2.85-3.5mm.

The three stages of exhaust brake on a six cilinder engine activates two cylinders at a time, cylinders 1-2 stage one, cylinders 1-2-3-4 stage two, and 1-2-3-4-5-6 stage three.

A Volvo engine brass or VEB works kind of the same only it uses a separate lobe on the camshaft to open the valve for engine braking...

Hope this helps..

How much money is a 1986 westfalia VW camper van with refrigerator and stove bed worth


For a vehicle that is 28 years old, the red book value would be close to junk value. However if you advertise it, it will be worth what some one is willing to pay for it. . Place the add in publications that cater for the traveller / back packer age group for best results.

Gas pressure is very low and quickly subsides then flame goes out.


Try the following:

Reinstall propane with fresh full propane canister. If problem persists then check tubing in stove for blockages. Make sure you open valve all the way for lighting.

If this doesn't work you may have a defective unit and need to replace it or send it for repair.

Hi,
Have them come back and check the gas pressure... either the tank regulator or the stove regulator are running at too low of a gas pressure... for propane it should be at least 10" WC...

Black is on the burners


the fuel to air mixture is set incorrectlty or your pressure at the ouitlet for the gas valve is too low.
you culd play around adjusting the first part of this but for the gas valve part you have to have a manaometer to check it out correctly. then it should be set at 10"wc. Good Luck

Coleman propane stove problem


The connector for attaching the regulator to a disposable propane cylinder has a sintered bronze filter in the tip of the brass probe tube that is prone to clogging, or the bronze pellets get mashed down over time, restricting gas flow, and this will cause a portable grill or camp stove to perform poorly. The filter is so fine that it takes very good eyesight and bright light to see that it isn't solid metal, or use of a strong magnifying lens. The best solution is to buy a new Coleman regulator assembly. If you are unable to get a new regulator assembly and have the skills and the tools, you can try drilling a very small hole on the side of the probe tube with a #60 drill bit, just below the bronze filter, but near enough the end of the tube so that the hole will be past the plastic seal when the disposable cylinder is fully screwed into place. You should avoid drilling directly into the end of the probe tube, as the end of it is used to depress the Schrader valve in the disposable cylinder to allow gas to flow. A #60 wire gauge drill bit is only 0.040 inch (1.016 mm) in diameter, but makes a hole large enough to supply sufficient gas to a portable grill or a dual-burner camp stove. If you choose to perform this work, the probe should be unscrewed from the regulator body and the Schrader valve core in the probe tube should be removed before drilling. Be sure to clean all brass and bronze particles out of the probe tube before re-installing the Schrader valve core and the screwing the probe into the regulator. Use a removable-grade thread locking compound to secure the probe in the regulator body and don't over-tighten it, so as not to crush the rubber gasket. Allow the thread locking compound to cure for several hours before attempting to use the regulator. Keep in mind that this modification increases the likelihood of dirt getting into the needle valves and jets of your stove or grill, which can cause maintenance problems in the future.1_28_2013_4_49_27_pm.jpg

Hi Chrishuhagen-
Here is the diagram you requested. If you need other assistance or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm an old VW mechanic, and I had (among others) a '71 Type 1 pop-top camper that I acquired with a blown engine. Built a stroker motor for it tuned for torque, and my friends redubbed it the "Ferrari Housecar!" It would cruise at 90 mph all day long, with plenty of pedal left! (And still get 30 mpg!)
Great cars!

This has been resampled to a smaller size so it would meet the file size limitations of the FixYa blog, but if you send me an e-mail at wldbil49@yahoo.com I will reply with the full size diagram as an attachment.

Please don't forget to rate my assistance----your rating is my only compensation for providing you this help!

Good luck with the electrical problems, and thank you!
