Yamaha Generator YG4600D

I am trying to convert from gasoline to natural gas to run the generator. Does Yamaha have any such conversion kit, or do you know of any such conversion kit I could install? I know other engines are doing this.

Thanks for any help you may give

Hello Bill:

Here are the site links you'll need to check and/or get info, or buy your adapter kit for your Yami YG4600D Genset conversion kit.

Most likely it's running an 8 or 10HP engine on it now? In any case it's most likely less then 12HP. Not sure what size engine you have, as you didn't say only for the model #? On older Gensets it's harder to track down the HP rated engine is all.

For your Yami YG4600D Genset there you most likely will have your choice of at least 4 adapter kits depending on if you are going to keep gasoline as an option. If you're definitely NOT going to be ever running gasoline again then there are 1 or 2 adapter kits to choose from.

Use the site links below, and then browse whichever area you want as there are many options there. The last link listed takes you through all the different engines by make & model #'s.

I would also shop around locally where you are in LA, as you might be able to get that adapter kit for a lot less then the $227 to $267 they are asking for there at that site.

If you don't see your exact model # (or kit) there call them on their 800 toll free # listed at their site.

Also - if this site doesn't meet your expectations customer service wise at least you will have a starting off point with the wealth of information supplied there!

I'm planning to install a 20 kilowatt Kohler whole house generator. After super storm Sandy we lost power for 13 days and got by on a 4 KW generator having to find gasoline and feed it to the gene


Ok, First of all the gas line to the generator should be separate from the other appliances, so yes you have to run a separate 1" line from meter to generator. The closer the generator is to the meter the better. The pressure should be fine if you stick to this. Also you will probably need a bigger meter depending on what you have now. PSI or WC is not the same as BTU's...The meter size controls BTU's and the regulator controls WC. Without knowing what you have for each generally the meter size will need to be upgraded.

Generator w/nat gas conversion kit sputters


THAT SOUNDS like a VERY LEAN condition. The exhause glowing is because its so lean. The stalling the sputtering. OPEN the gas valve more WHILE its running. With a load if possible.. If you have a tri fuel kit like I do, going from propane to nat gas I need to open the load block (gas valve) 2 turns more .Then it starts and runs great.

Can I convert a Yamaha EC 5000DV generator to electric start? Where can I get those parts. rich


You can convert it BUT.... It will require spending almost as much on parts and shipping as this generator is worth.

You will need a new flywheel. Wiring harness for the start circuit, Key / switch assy, modified contgrol panel, Starter & solenoid, mounting bolts, a battery and battery holder. Additionally you will will need a voltage requlator.
Each of the parts will have to be special ordered from a Yamaha service center type shop. There is not a kit form for your unit. Depending on exactly which engine you have the 357 CC or the 410 CC you may not even be able to do it at all.

I just looked into doing the same thing for a Robin RGV 6100. "The dealers have you by the private parts!!!" The cost was about $200.00 less than buying a new generator of the equal size with an electric start system. The only thing I would not have had to buy for that conversion would be the regulator due to it being an inverter generator type unit.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Engine cant run with air filter fitted, I have cleaned it .but the problem remains the same


This means that you are over fueling. There is more fuel going to the carberator than air. By removing the air filter you are allowing more air flow into the carberator, which is allowing the engine to run right. Natural gas and propane generator must have no more than 11 inches of water column. Gasoline engines should have no more than 3.5 psi out of the electric pump. If gasoline is gravity fed, then this means that you need to rebuild the carberator or purchase a new carberator, but try to adjust the flow valve on the bowl of carberator first.
