Photo 2 HP FM hit-n-miss on propane.

I added a demand regulator to my 2 HP FM hit-n-miss today and it's now running much cleaner and the third hit-n-miss engine that I'm now running on propane. Just playing on a nice warm fall day here in NW AR. Charles

Do you have a video of this? I'd like to see it run.

My cell phone is an antique so I can not make a video at this time, however it runs just like it does on gasoline without the smoke. Just a cleaner way to operate while inside the building. It was running when photographed.
