Chad--it is nice to see the early Pace Arrows---I really need to look at mine and determine if it is restorable or just junk---I haven't done anything to mine since my 5200 mile trouble free trip approx. twenty years ago---I'm getting older and have way too many projects that keep my 72 Pace Arrow on the back burner---Dave

Your fuel nozzle is probably clogging or a possibilty of bad propane,,Yes,, propane can go bad,

They put that pin in at the factory and its there as to NOT exceed the max amount of fuel going through,, Its a bad idea to take the pin out and exceed the required distance. Always be very careful working with propane gas.
