Just figured I'd post 2 pics of the my completed Generac XG8000e natural gas conversion with the CIC carburetor induction method.  I know when I started this, it was nice to get ideas from other people.    The best thing about this conversion, I made sure there were no permanent modifications to the frame or any other parts.  Everything is removal and can be put back to "factory" if needed (for obvious reasons)

Do you have any pics with the cover off showing the full piping?

Sure...I will take some and upload them later on.  It's actually real simple.  US Carb inducted the carb and you just connect the long rubber hose that goes from the regulator to the carburetor hose that they installed.

These are best pictures I could get.  The air filter housing blocks the view of the carburetor.

There were no permanent modifications done to the generator at all.  The air filter housing was not modified in any way because USCarb supplied me with a new carburetor with the CIC induction.  Let me know if you need anything more info.

Did you have to swap your original carb for the CIC version or did you have your original carb modified by US Carb?

I had USCarb order me a new carburetor and do the CIC for me.  This way I an always restore the generator to factory if need be.  It was also easier having them take care of the whole process.  All I had to do was remove the air filter housing and replace the carb.  I recommend taking pictures as you work so that you know where everything was connected on the original carb.  There are wires that go to the throttle arm and the choke that you just have to make sure go back in the same place...it's very simple.

It took a few pumps of the primer to get it running, it was just a matter of testing the proper priming of the zero governor regulator and then it started up with no problems.

Does the CIC method make your carburetor operate as a tri-fuel carburetor or does is remove the possibility of using gasoline?  I want the ability to use gasoline, LP and NG.

It retains the ability to run tri fuel.


But I would call us carb to make sure that is correct... I only run on natural gas.

So I have never tested other fuels

Hi, I had the CIC done to my carb and installed the kit successfully and it runs great on NG at idle and even a small load but if I put a large load on it, the RPM race to 4000-4100. When I remove the load the RPM goes down to roughly 3660. I have a 7K Briggs & Stratton generator. Have you had any issues like that?
