Default Re: What have you done to your Onan generator today?

Ran 7.5 JB (previously gasoline only) on propane for 1st time today. Ran only 15 min no load. Barbecue tank and regulator only thru 5' of 1/2" fuel hose. Took a few cranks til all the air was out and some fiddling with the main adjustment. Once it caught it stayed running. Exhaust nice and clean. Next step is piping up for a 125 gal (nominal) propane tank.
