Default Onan 12.5 JC Generator with Beam T50 Demand Regulator

Will this combo work? I received the generator with no regulator, just a cutoff hose from the carb (the propane equivalent anyway).
I have the regulator on an old 11 hp floor scrubber, would like to use it just to get the generator running. Is it worth trying?
Thanks

It should work fine. Does the t50 work on the other engine? I run a beam t60 on a 7.5 jb and it works great. Is there any other connection from the t50 to the engine? I'm not familiar with the t50 but some models of t60 have a vacuum lock that connects to a source of engine vacuum before it will allow gas to flow.

Yes, it has a vacuum line for the lock. I'll give it a shot. I just want to get the generator to run, then I'll go from there.
Thanks

Quickest way is to squirt some gasoline down the carb...
