    If you are like me. You have a few old small gasoline engines that won't start because the carburetors are shot because of the ethanol in gasoline. Well, I decided to get my old gasoline power generator working again by converting it to Natural Gas. It was a lot of fun and you will not believe how simple it is. I thought I would make this a video just for fun. Here you go. Enjoy!

    I know this is an old thread, but have just gone through the process of rebuilding carbs on several of my small engines and have been researching what it would take to convert some of them to LPG. I ran into this thread doing a Google search and had already seen the video on YouTube. Just wanted to add my thanks and give the thread a bump, in case anyone else is interested in it.
