Section 1 — General Information
Fuel pressure for a natural gas set up should be five
inches to 14 inches of water column (0.18 to 0.5
psi) at all load ranges.
Fuel pressure for an LP vapor set up should be 11
inches to 14 inches of water column (0.4 to 0.5
psi) at all load ranges.
15
A seperate gas line and regulator may be needed
to assure proper gas pressure to the generator.

Improper gas pressure can cause hard starting and
could affect engine durability.

1.12 RECONFIGURING THE FUEL
SYSTEM
All models are configured for natural gas from the
factory.
To reconfigure the fuel system from NG to LP , follow
these steps:
1. Turn the main gas supply off.
2. Remove the carburetor fuel hose from the outlet
port (Port 1) of the demand regulator (Figure
1.8).
3. Remove the brass hose fitting from the outlet port
(Port 1) of the demand regulator.
4. Remove pipe plug from Port 2.
5. Install brass hose fitting into Port 2.
6. Install pipe plug into Port 1.
7. Connect carburetor gas hose to brass fitting.
8. Tighten all clamps and plugs.
9. Make sure fuel supply is of the proper pressure
and type for configuration.
10. Reverse the procedure to convert back to natural
gas.
