Default Victor's First Run in Hit n Miss Mode on Propane

Just wanted to share my old Victor on propane in the hit n miss mode. Don't think it will ever see raw gas while in my care. Propane is so clean and easy to do. Charles

It seems to coast against compression...so this is a throttler setup as hit-n-miss?

Yes, it is. A single pole switch changes it either in the normal TG mode or in a hit n miss mode. And yes it runs against compression in the hit n miss mode and so smooth. Charles

Just removed the air intake top hat and used a rubber couple with a pvc fitting and 1/2-inch fitting and an air quick disconnect. All from Lowe's. I used a propane demand valve, a multi-turn valve and a cut off valve for air control. The propane if fed from a cheap outdoor cooker regulator. It works best with the air valve shut off as there is air leakage around the air choke in the air intake pipe. May try putting a rubber grommet in there later, however it works just fine the way it is now set up. I just finished wiring the ignition system and ran it again both in TG and hit n miss for about an hour. Quit 'cause it's getting warm here in NW Arkansas. Cheers, Charles
