I plan on running it on propane primarily. It's just going to sit around most times, so I want to just set it aside with a full bottle of propane because it won't go bad like a tank full of gas. And who knows if I'll have gas in the can on that one stormy night when the lights decide to go out.
The adjustment on the regulator is probably the fuel adjustment, and the adjustment on the ring is probably the idle adjustment.
Since you have I running good on gas, it should run fine now on propane.
The propane will cause waste vapor at the exhaust, bu hts about it. It wouldn't hut to run it on propane once in a hike just so the carb doesn't go bad.
I get the demand regulator on the unit better now that I have it apart and am waiting on the rebuild kit. It may have even been working okay as it was, but since I didn't have a regulator on the tank side, it doesn't take much pressure to overpower the valve in the demand regulator on the gen. That's why I was getting gas going right through the valve... too much pressure.
My one concern on the input is that since it needs a very low pressure input, that a propane tank with regulator isn't going to provide enough volume at that low pressure. If that happens, what I may try to do is up the pressure a bit and then put a stiffer spring in the demand regulator. Then I can get more flow. What I'm gathering and reading online is that the it's a balancing game between how much pressure and flow that you get out of a propane tank (or natural gas line) and that demand regulator. Will get there - hopefully without buying too many parts. I'd like to get one of those quick connects on my natural gas line eventually, too.
Next time I run it on propane, will have to see if the water in the carb bowl comes back. Thanks again!
