By "Easy Start", do you mean starting fluid/Ether? Fuel issue on an LPG setup...sorry I can't offer much insight THERE beyond trying to be supportive, Barry. Randy, Copper or Bob would be my go-to guys for further info around here, hope you get it sorted out!

If it runs with starting fluid, it's going to be a fuel supply problem. With your LPG conversion there should be a controller that turns off the injectors while switched to propane. Seeing if the injectors are actually being powered/triggered properly would be the first thing I would look at.
