The material presented on this page is intended to start you thinking about what you can do today that might someday save your life. If nothing else, our "Tip o' da Week" might just make your life a bit easier when a disaster strikes. We do not present topics that cost a lot of money (like structure reinforcement.) These are "do it yourself" projects and are relatively inexpensive.
Introducing: Hatsuden Nabe
Q. The Tecumseh kit you used looked like there were other smaller parts. What else was included?
A. The kit we used was custom designed to include every gizmo needed for the Tecumseh engine. It included all the little stuff that would have taken time at the hardware store to round up.
Q. How much propane will a motor use compared to gasoline?
A. About the same amount of propane as your motor uses in Gasoline. Propane has about 10% fewer British Thermal Units (BTU's) than Gasoline does. But the estimate for your engine running on gasoline in terms of hours per gallon will be very close to that for propane.
Q. What is the "portability kit" you mentioned and do I need that too?
A. Yes in most applications. The basic kit is designed to tie into the output of a regulator on a bulk propane tank. Small portable propane tanks (like barbecue tanks) do not have a regulator. The "portability kit" contains the required 12 PSI regulator, and a 12 foot hose. This kit is only required for use with portable tanks. It then feeds the vacuum controlled flow regulator that connects with the modified carburetor.
Q. How long does the kit take to install, and can I do it with just a few tools?
A. The kit took about 2 hours to complete the installation. But we couldn't try it out for 24 hours until the RTV had set up. Also, you will need some common tools like screw drivers, socket set and such, and a 17/64th drill bit and power drill.
