Hey, just a few questions.

1- I own a powerstoke 6000 (I think its a 389cc rato motor) and was thinking of converting to a natural gas, which kit do I require?

2- I was thinking of purchasing a 50 foot "1 inch" flexible hose (sold by your site) which will be attached to the dedicated gas line for my pool heater, since during a crisis I certainly will not be using the heater. Assuming I have to modify this line to include a "T" fitting, additional shut-off value and quick connect attachment (all installed by professional plumber) that will be used to attach to the flexible hose that will only be attached when we are using the generator, does anyone think this is dangerous?

In case you interested, I’m assuming 50 feet, so I’m able to store the generator inside a shed (during operation door or windows will be open) away from the snow/rain and and closer to the transfer switch outlet, gas line will also be running at least 5 to 10 feet from home when in use.

BTW, the other reason I thinking flexible is because it will reduce the cost of installation.

Thanks for the help
Mike

Hi,

   You can simply order a C Kit from the shopping cart on our website http://www.uscarb.com and when checking out there will be information fields to fill out which will ask for the generator model and engine model information. The CSR’s will use this to determine the correct kit for you prior to sending it on to the kit center to be scheduled for production. If for some unusual reason more information is needed, an email will be sent to you asking for your help so that we can fulfill your order in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your request and we are confident you will enjoy your kit and our service as well. Here is a link to our website where there is a pipe sizing chart: http://uscarb.com/natural-gas-chart.htm

Thank you for the information, but you didn't answer the second question.  Can you please tell me if running a 50 foot flexible hose would be a dangerous application?  Taking into consideration, this is only going to be operated during a crisis.  Thanks

Hi,

  If the hose will only be connected up during a crisis then I would say no it should be fine. However if this hose is going to be left hooked up and is going to be in a place where it could possibly be ran over with a vehicle or hit with a lawn mower or weed-eater then I would recommend having a line installed underground.
