I'm going to order one from Newegg, it certainly seems like it'd be easier to use than holding my meter and trying to adjust the propane.

Another good thing about propane, you can store it for years unlike gas that will go bad.

So, I officially finished installing it. I ended up remounting the regulator so I could utilize the handles. So, the book said to get it running smooth then put a load on it and adjust the air fuel to 58.6 Hertz. At first I used a box fan, got it as low as 61 hertz. Then I hooked it up to the house and turned everything on. Got it as low as 60 hertz. I couldn't get it any lower no matter which way I adjusted it.

The other issue I'm having is its very difficult to start. I've read it could be related to tank pressure and ambient temperature, spark plug and its gap or a restriction in the line; I do have a fuel level gauge on it so it could also be thay. It is pretty cold out today, I've still gotta mess around with it as with anything there is a learning curve so I've still got to learn it.
